Very Strange Problem! not sure if its the PSU!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
OK so, here is the thing. i currently have this unknown brand PSU which is called "inland" which it claims has 600w.

now let me start with what im currently running and what is connected to my PC:

CPU:AMD PHENOM II x6 1055t OC to 3.8ghz ,
GPU:AMD 6870 1gb
RAM:12gb,

i have 3 ssd's connected and one HDD connected.

i also have 7 USB Devices Connected to my motherboard.

Now the strange Problem Comes whenever i play games(BF3 for example) i get some sort of lags once in a while(its a connection lag)! now whenever i OC my graphic card while playing games, the internet will disconnect in the middle of the game and will not show available wifi's around. i have no choice but restarting my computer(sometimes i even have to shut down my computer so my computer recognize the wifi device).

things ive tried
the cause cant be from the internet provider as i have internet on other devices!! ! i have tried 3 different wireless card brands and they all do the same!
installed brand new windows


Do you think this is some sort of weak PSU? because i cant think of anything else that can cause this!!


thanks for your time!!

yes its definitely the PSU. for an all stock pc with a single hard drive and video card that psu would be ok....but your overclocking your graphics card and chip and have multiple hard drives hooked up too. next time by an ocz mod extreme series psu. not too terribly expensive and widely available at microcenter. and much better quality then the inland series of psus. the brands i personally recommend are Cooler Master, OCZ, PC Power and Cooling, Seasonic and XFX and sometimes if you can find a great deal on one a corsair....usually i avoid corsair, not because of quality but because of pricing.

I doubt the problem is your PSU (It would just plain shut off if it was), but I would replace that thing ASAP, I have never seen any good words said about an Inland branded PSU. If it is indeed a hardware issue, I would much rather point to your mixed and matched RAM kits than the PSU however crappy it may be. I've never had much luck with wireless on my desktops regardless of the hardware involved, so I avoid it like the plague. Heck, my PC now sits literally on top of the wireless router and it can't keep a signal for more than 30-45 minutes without dropping out so I use the wired port.

Not impossible, highly improbable though. Do test it with a different PSU, it's the simplest way to find out if it's the PSU at fault, or something else.

thanks for the reply man!!

yeah as you said ! only microcenter sell those! i wish when i got it i have had some research online before buying it!.....the problem i have is just weird!...

Microcenter is very good with carrying ALOT of name brands. as someone else mentioned it might be your mixed and matched ram. try running only the 4gb kit and doing memtest86+ on that and then if that passes then try it on the 8gb kit and see about that. I personally am still leaning towards a week 12 volt rail on your psu causing voltage issues. week power supplies can cause all sorts of havoc when you start overclocking because your making the hardware run at speeds it wasnt supposed to and it will eat more voltage a week 12 volt rail on a psu could possibly only show its ugly head at overclock speeds.

thanks for the suggestion!

the thing is it cant be my rams ! because the overclock on my CPU is 99.9% stable.and ive ran memtest so it shouldnt be that. i remember i had the same issue before i added the pair of rams!
and i totally agree with wireless cards ! its just annoying when you dont get the speed you expect!

It is possible, although extremely unlikely that the only effect of his PSU being overloaded is his wireless network disconnecting. I would still replace that PSU, its... uh.... of poor quality (trying to find something civilized to say about it).

It could be. Cheap PSUs can cause the weirdest issues.

But regardless if it's causing it or not I'd get it replaced anyways. You always run the risk of things going wrong with low quality PSUs.
