Coincidence or faulty PSU?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i've been struggling with my system for a few months now. My card would crash under load and sometimes even while watching a video so i bought a new HD 7950 IceQ Boost and it still crashes. The new card has Coil whine/capacitor squeal idle and load.

I've replaced my motherboard, ran memtest for 8hrs + with no errors, replaced Graphics card and i still get crashes, Could it be just a coincidence or my PSU is faulty?

I had a HX1000 that did sorta the same thing to my system

The reason mine did it was becasue it was damaged

Fastest way to rule the PSU out is to try another one
