Hmm. That is a better PSU. It may not look as nice, but it certainly is superior.

true, that is also the reason i'd went with my PSU, good quality and enough power for a heavily overclocked quadcore CPU and CF/SLI with a little room to spare

I went for sure, and thinking of future upgrades, so I bought a TX850.

it wasn't my sig rigs PSU (luckily), it was an old 478 P4 system that blew and took most of the parts with it (the HDD's survived though ).

Because it could be anything but the PSU... just a power flickering for example. Or auto-update on Windows.

Well, you said. There's no way you need a PSU after all xD

Grats for the 1000th post.
BTW I modified my post before you posted yours, because I just remembered that I've seen an old Corsair PSU glowing.

I was sitting at the computer when it happened, so if it were an "auto-update on Windows" as you said, then I most certainly would not have reacted the way I did. Besides, I have it set up so that Windows Update doesn't do that.

Not only that, but even if I weren't sitting at my computer when it happened, then I most certainly would not have reacted like this. But it happened while I was sitting at the computer. That's why I froze and said "Uh oh. This is not good" etc. I was just typing up a reply to a thread and all of the sudden it rebooted. The last time that happened to me was with a pre-built and it was the PSU.

Give me some credit, man.

It sounds like you want to have an argument two cables

I think he was trying to point out that it could be almost anything (power surges ect.) instead of just focusing on windows update. To be honest my computer has done that once or twice since i've built it but its only if it happens several times within a few hours that i would have been worried.

I just don't like it when people assume I'm that stupid. There are much better ways to approach these things.

And yeah, maybe I over-reacted to my computer rebooting itself. But maybe I didn't. My overclock is stable enough to do 12 hours of the Small FFTs, 12 hours of the Blend and also 12 hours of the Large FFTs. It's also stable for 100 runs of LinX using 3.4 GB of memory (any more and the test doesn't run because it complains of being low on memory). It's also stable for over 10 passes in Memtest. But yet lately it's been locking up here and there for almost no apparent reason.

And now this: it just reboots all by itself. And I sincerely doubt that it's a power surge as I have my rig on Tripp-Lite's HT10DBS. It's also plugged into a grounded outlet.

There's one thing I am suspecting now, and it's my memory. My memory has a stock voltage range of 2.0V - 2.1V. Now, I prefer using the 1T command rate which requires quite a bit of voltage. I recently bumped it up from 2.175V to 2.2V (about 24 hours ago, maybe more). As a result, it seems like those lock-ups went away. So perhaps my memory couldn't handle it. Or maybe it's something entirely different.

But all the while, I have been considering replacing it with the HX650W anyway, so I figured this was probably the best time to do it.

Edit: It's pretty cold in here. I'd say it's about 19-20°C.
