Getting power cuts - PSU at fault? - Page 2

In my mind it seems a lot more likely that, with the added components, my PC actually draws more power than it used to from the old (yet trusty?) UPS, which might be more than it can provide, causing it to cut power long enough for my PSU (and, as a result, my Mobo) to freak out and cut power.

To be honest, I'd completely forgotten about the old unit...
But I guess that might be mystery solved (?)

Take it out and see if it helps

Found the culprit!



Notice where it says 400W?
Yeah, I was stupid... Adding the extra GPU probably caused it to go over capacity when my system's under load.
Which, in turn, caused the power cuts...

Sorry for wasting your time, man!
Thanks for all your help smile.gif
