Who is dragging you into an argument?? I'm just stating the obvious. Even corsair says on their website that the psu is meant for basic budget builds. Not octo-core, with mainstream GPU card build. On top of that, the 8320 goes through juice pretty quickly when you OC.

I understand that you didn't do your research when you built your rig, but it's no reason to put your hands over your ears and shout "lalalalalalala" when someone tries to give you info about what is most likely wrong with your system.

There really is no argument... The CX series are crap. You could have bought something better for the same price. Anyways the issue is either PSU or your drivers.

I had one BSOD and 2 crashes, that I found online somewhere, point to VC mem (gray screen with lines).

There's a reason they're sold for the price they are.

I'd just like to say. When he gets round to testing with a decent PSU...

Called it.

I have the CX500M and it runs fine for what i need it for. The OP if right, it runs my OC'ed 8320 @ 4.6 & 7850 @ 1200Mhz fine. The problem is not his PSU.

I dont know much about PSU's but if mine runs fine, then hes should to.

The problem is obviously else where

Sorry. But you are saying some wild claims here. Which just do not make sense. I agree that the PSU should be fine.

If me and someone else buy the same PSU at the same time, and mine is fine, while their's dies - does that mean their's should be fine? No.

@shilka Can we get some knowledge on if this could be an underpowered PSU?

I've seen Shika actually all caps bold type someone for recommending and saying the CX serues is great. Same with the RM. When shika chimes in here we'll know for sure

Thanks, nice to have someone on my side... (thanks also Johan45). Your Computer should have a virtually identical voltage draw as mine, it makes sense that if your CX500 can handle it, my CX600 should be fine. The PSU calculator (http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp) says recommended 460 even with my OCing factored in. I know that is just a guide line. But I have a decent amount of head room above that.

The power supply either has enough power or it doesn't, I believe the "quality" has more of an effect on longevity.

Although I am fine with the performance I get from the system, and I don't believe the PSU is the issue, how would this one be? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151137

By any chance are the crashes black-screen reboots?

FWIW, it has 46A on the +12V rail (printed right on the box). The web site is incorrect.

First of all I'd like to say that seasonic makes quality units, no doubt. and quality counts for more than just longevity. If a PSU can't supply a good staedy voltage and you get dips you can get crashes. From everything I've read the CX series is a fairly good budget buy for a PSU so IMO unless yours is actually faulty or defective that really shouldn't be the issue. That PSU should be good up to at least a 5.2+ OC on that CPU with the GPU OC'd.
I don't know what type of OC settings you have but to test something out try dropping the ram to 1333 or 1600 and NB down to 2200 then see if you can keep your CPU OC and card OC working together. AS you increase performance on ram and NB this will also make you CPU work harder since there's more data to process. If you're successful and it doesn't crash then you'll need to work on your OC settings.

All the above in consideration. 46 A is better than the 40 listed on the Corsair site.

It may be an adequate PSU for that build - what I'm trying to get across is:

That PSU is not a 'high quality' or 'top spec', true. It is capable of powering your components, true. It may not be up to the task of running your system under 'non-standard' load. If you are stress testing your PC - you will be putting load on the PSU which it was never designed for.

A typical 'top spec' PSU - will be able to cater to this need, due to the higher quality components and build of the PSU.

Have you a friend or such who can lend you a PSU for testing?





and for anyone who cares: http://www.overclock.net/t/1470731/corsair-cx600-psu-on-smoke/0_20 this is the exact reason I am saying it could be your PSU. Dang - we've even seen Seasonic in trouble since the R9 series came out with melting PCI-E power connectors!
