Is this the case of faulty PSU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Started having random reboots with my rig while playing Shogun 2; Crysis. Problem only appears in games that do maximum load on Cpu and gpu, 20-60minutes into session.

1. Did memtest no errors still random reboots
2. Changed my memory to my other rigs memory same problem.
3. Wanted to make simulate high power situation loaded Prime95 Large FFT and same time FURMARK.

My Power supply revved up in second and became louder then 1.1V 837 OCed GTX 570 at 80% fan, and i turned of the benchmarks, because i worried about frying my pc.
In comparison the PSU fan was blowing really warm air with power greater then Scythe SS at 2k rpm, and louder.

Do i have a PSU CFT-700-14C who is coming to an end, it was purchased around 4 years ago when i bought a brand new e8400 rig ^^.

4 years ago, chieftec, replace.

I don't think the chieftec's were graet either were they, not 100% but it doens't sound great tbh.
