Sorry, I should have stated "markets" decent psus. The psus I have used from them in the past were made by Seasonic. That's the only brand I use now.

Ok I am not sure if I 100% agree with everyone here.

Here is why, but iti's based on a few things from my personal experiences.

1. If you take out the SLI 780, do you have any issues?

2. My assumption is, that your problem will go away. a 780 will pull 220 - 300 watts depending on the O / C and load

3. If the system still fails, then put all of your clocks back to stock with it out. Check your bios, drivers, and ensure it's up to date.

4. When did the problems start occurring? Before or after the 2nd Video card
a. If it happened after, it could be driver corruption do a; SFC / Scannow, does it pass? If it doesn't pass and there are errors look at the log and / or run SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe can get it from sevenforums. if there are errors you / BSOD's check COMMON BSOD Error codes AND WHO CRASHED
b. Next option is Windows Readiness tool if you have errors

5. If Step one is the issue, call up Corsair and explain your situation so that you can RMA your PSU, they may be able to give you an AX860 watt.

My personal experience is that my system ran fine before SLi, my AX860 was rated to be fine. I RMA'd it but then realized that it was a PSU. I am now on a 1300 and have not had a problem since and the AX860 is in its wrapping in the closet up for sale.

Do my steps and report back what happens.
