I'm talking about power connection on the back of the psu being loose. On my old psu (some ****ty raidmaxx) you could not jiggle this connection around, and this is how MOST electronics are. On my 850hx I can jiggle this connection around. I noticed this was a problem when I went to SLIGHTLY move my case and the whole computer shut down. Obviously it is not smart to move a computer while it's on, but you should be able to slightly move it and not have it LOSE all power to the board.

I would really like to hear from other corsair psu owners if a jiggly power cable is the norm, or if I should just save myself the headache and RMA this psu...
Mine is slightly loose, but not THAT loose. It would never shut my pc down... Try what covertash suggested. If that's not helping any it can't be good that your PSU is like that.

Have you done a full clearing of your CMOS (either by holding down a reset button or removing the battery and reseating it)?

Have you run Memtest to see if the RAM may be faulty?

Have you tried reseating everything else? RAM, GPU, CPU, all cables, etc.? Particularly for RAM, you may want to try using the other slots.

Have you tried flashing to an updated motherboard BIOS?

Did the issues start happening recently out of nowhere? Were there any power outages? Storms?

Is your PSU connected directly to the wall? If so, do you have a good quality surge protector that you can hook it up to? If not, is there a different power outlet you can use (preferably in a different part of the room)?

Try those out and see if anything changes.
Thanks for that extensive reply. I'm not going to be able to respond to it fully this late, but I'll respond to some points.

Before reading your reply my psu was connected to a fairly cheap Belkin surge protector. My next statement is very embarrassing to type because I am an electrical engineering graduate. I discovered that the power supply was not grounded due to the fact that a 3 to 2 prong adapter was being used. There was in fact a bad storm last weekend in which the power did go out, and I was not home. I'm hoping this did not cause any issues. I read that even ungrounded surge protectors still provide some safety measures. Even though it seems this issue has been occurring before the storm, it seems to have occurred more frequently this week after the storm.

What would be the symptoms if a component was actually affected by a surge? I'm under the impression that the component would be fully blown.

I have not tried reseating anything, but will tomorrow if the problem persists. One issue I suspect could be at fault is that when connecting the 580 to my haf x it took a lot of effort. What I mean by this is when I initially connected the 580 to my mobo it did not really line up with the back of the case. Maybe my required finagling caused the card to not sit snugly in the PCI slot? My problem with this is that, other than ordering another case, this had to be done.

I have reset the CMOS.

I am in fact on the latest BIOS, F8.

After your response I am now using my monster surge protector for my computer and leaving the cheaper belkin for my ps3 and tv. I will be replacing the outlet tomorrow, and HOPEFULLY there is actually a ground available to the outlet or i'll cry.

That being said, after resetting the CMOS and hooking the computer to the new surge protector I was able to get through 2 sc2 games so far with no bsod. But i'm still not convinced.

A bad enough surge could cause the symptoms you are experiencing since the PSU can no longer reliably supply the clean power needed during various loads. The quickest way to know for sure would be to swap in a known good PSU to test - even a good 450W-650W unit is good enough to work.

However, since you mentioned the issue was already there before the storm, I would try other things first.

I have this same problem as well with my case and all expansion cards, in general, so I don't think a new case is necessary. It usually takes me a couple of reseats to get it right, but once it starts working it will be fine. In my experience, with a bad seat, the device usually doesn't work at all, but I would give it a shot anyway since it's a quick and easy fix.

It could also be a grounding issue with the motherboard too. Like a screw or something fell and got lodged on the backside of the motherboard, or an improperly installed stand-off. It's far fetched, but at this point anything is worth checking.

That's good news!

Although, if the issue does reoccur, I would look at suspect RAM first. Ever since I started overclocking with AMD's Socket 939 to this present day, the main constant that has given me BSOD's (besides voltage) is always due to bad RAM or bad RAM settings. However, with what you said above, I'm more inclined to believe that there may have been a setting or two in your BIOS that was causing your issue where the full CMOS reset may have resolved.

Hopefully, it was just something that simple.

Those blocks are the same ones I was looking into before I decided that watercooling is too much work. Lol.

Got an H100 instead.
