after reading your post i actually remember while ago not only my wireless but my other external hard drive was conflicting and was acting weird at the same time as the wireless device! like windows wasnt recognizing it ! so i had to unplug then replug it, or maybe restart the computer to make it work!....

another thing to mention which makes me think its the PSU again is, why when i do a Overclock test from CPU or Graphic card Individually they seem to be fine! but when these start working together"like playing games" , they cause my wireless or external HDD to not work properly?

Like I said, its possible but unlikely. Those do not match any typical symptoms of a failing or overloaded PSU. A full system lockup or shut down would be normal. It could be that the accessory rail is dropping enough to take the hard drive offline which then interrupts all of your windows functions. Regardless, that PSU needs to be replaced before you have a dead system or a house fire.
