I blame crappy PSU, if the demands are too high. (which they may or may not be, seeing as how its a cheap PSU) Then the voltage will fluctuate cause that PSU can't keep it up. Thus it will reboot. Just my thought.
'bout time.

Eeee.

XION is a brand you do not want to get near. Cheap PSU is even worse than ever, and said that it was $20.

The PSU is the heart of all system. Just as your heart keeps your body going.

If your XION PSU is dying, I would replace it ASAP, before it kills itself and brings your entire or some parts down with it.

You just can't go cheap on a psu buddy. To have a stable system, you need to get a decent psu.
