EDIT 2: Also, I had the issue where I couldn't boot until I unplugged and replugged the PSU into the motherboard so I'd assume that was a pretty good indication as well that the PSU was on its way out.
I'm not so convinced. The CX600M may not be a stellar PSU, but it's certainly not a junker or generic or bottom-of-the-barrel. We can't judge the quality of any PSU by its 80+ Certification. Just because a PSU is 80+ Bronze Certified, it doesn't mean it's low in quality.
Oh. Reddit. I'm not surprised. Try to keep your questions directed at OCN. You're FAR less likely to be mislead or given incorrect information on here than you are anywhere else.
Anyway, I guess we'll just wait and see what the new SSD and PSU does. I would check your wall outlet though because if a fairly decent PSU is dying this fast, then there's a chance the power coming out of the outlet isn't all that good or stable.
