Am I in need of PS upgrade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I was just wondering if you think I'm in need of more power. I OC'ed my CPU to 3200+ but theres random reboots. I'm not sure if this is because lack of cooling or lack of power.

well have you run any stability programs? run memtest86 (at least 20 loops) to test your RAM for stability and make sure your system is prime95 stable. It could be that your system is not stable at that OC. That could cause your problems... or it could be that your psu just can't handle the extra draw that your OC'd rig is drawing. regardless a psu upgrade is always a good thing.
