Possible new PSU needed, advice please.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
2nd PC has just started sort of surging, stopping, surging, stopping from a cold boot, first thoughts were the motherboard, an Asus Rampage Extreme V X79, this has had the occasional famous cold start problem that blowing a hair drier over the board will make it start, but I don't think its that, (though I may have to replace that too soon!) just got it to boot and its giving a surge message and specifically mentioning unstable PSU, its an old Corsair HX1000 that would be well past its 5 year warranty, its been useful though and powered three builds during its tenure.

I'll side by side test with my main rig that has a Super Flower 1000W and if no problems there its safe to assume the Corsair HX1000 has had its best days?

So what currently would be a good replacement? do I need a 1000W? probably not, thinking a 750 to 800W this time? Do want quality though, its an I7 3960X on the Asus Rampage Extreme, quad DDR3, single GTX980 SC, 6 HD's, 3 of them are SSD's, Asus Xonar Essence STX. I'll never want to SLI, so based on that, any good recommendations for quality and stability? a long warranty would be a bonus too, please.

EDIT: Forgot to say I don't bother overclocking this rig any-more and I'll probably want to buy from these guys here in the UK if you want to have a look at what they have available, link is to their PSU selection, Cheers.

These 3 are your best options if you can spend that much

And a lot of the old Corsair HX1000 have been dying so i would not even bother trying to test it
i would just assume its another one thats dying.
