Yeah your psu is more then enough for that card and its a nice unit at that, I think the best bet at this point is to get the new card installed when it shows up then trouble shoot from there, while it could possibly be the psu I personally dont think it was the issue, you said the card you pulled out was faulty, what exactly was faulty or what was it doing or not doing?

First game I booted up after the install crashed. Another session with BF4 single player and I noticed flickering textures/strange behavior with the shadows throughout. Then came the fluctuations with TDP & GPU load in Kombustor and a few more crashes.. all of this and I still didn't assume the worst. I decided to do a small to average overclock to see if anything corrected itself and after hours of small tweaks i got nothing. I gave up and chalked it up to a bad card. Is any of this a symptom of a dying PSU? Hopefully I didn't pin point the wrong component but I figured it was logical since the PSU had no problems pushing crossfired 6950s unlocked to 6970s. Does the 780 draw considerably more power?

I completely forgot to flip that switch! F-word. I got the faulty video card out and powered up with with the dvi to mother board / intel hd 3000. Everything is running fine. Would I have seen sparks or smelled anything if I fried anything? Kind of nervous to insert the new card in that PCIe slot :/ Am I okay?


Also- quick side question... the faulty card was showing quite a bit of fluctuation in GPU load and TDP via Kombuster (up & down from 5% to 25%) and the core clock was down clocking from 1000 to 914 during the GPU burn-in. Is that considered throttling or is this normal with Kombuster? Would that be PSU related? Thanks crew

Power is drawn, not pushed. I usually work in my computer without powering down the PSU completely, especially if it's just the graphics cards.

Yes sir.

Besides, aren't PCIe devices hot swapable? Or is that only PCI?

Wouldn't worry about it. Your psu should have a ten year or lifetime warranty if that does happen to be the issue then initiate an rma with corsair. Sometimes they even send shipping labels.

Lol this post

1)I only know of one psu (by evga) with a 10 yr warranty
2) He doesn't have a Corsair PSU if you look at the sig rig


My bad. I was looking at another thread my apologies.

Does the Asrock BIOS accurately monitor the PSU voltage or display any information that would be helpful determining it's health? I remember seeing voltage values... not at home.. anxious to find out now, though. biggrin.gif

Something like aida64 or hwinfo/hwmonitor will show you voltages within windows. The programs arent super accurate when it comes to voltages but should be accurate enough to point out any huge voltage issues. Your board may also have voltage monitor points on it that you can use a multimeter with to get a more accurate reading. As for the warranty its 7 years according to corsairs current ax850 page, not ten. Either way your well within warranty period.

New card is in and games are running stable along with kombustor. Sweet! I even adjusted for an overclock without touching the voltage +128 core and +250 memory. thumb.gif
