i think my psu is overheating

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So. I have this current psu (in system specs). Problem is, it is BLASTING out heat. When playing Crysis 2 for about an hour, I bluescreened. My ram and CPU have passed OCCT. I don't really have a thermometer to measure the temperature of the heat output, but it's hotter than my exhaust fan or cpu fan. Quite honestly, it's the hottest component in my system. What can I do? Will post additional information as it's needed.

If you're positive it's the PSU, and it really is blowing out a lot of heat and is the source of your BSODs, RMA it. That's really the only thing you can do. Problems with a PSU in most cases is if you open it you void the warranty.

use compressed air to make sure it is clean. if dust is built up it will not cool properly.

Try what is stated above, too. Take a can of compressed air to it and get all the dust out. Then try again

I purchased the PSU on 1/28/11. Will Newegg RMA it? It is blowing some ridiculous heat. I'm fairly positive it's the psu, as I don't think that a BSOD would generate after multiple passes on OCCT.

If Newegg doesn't RMA it deal with the manufacturer directly.

Just a thought, another thing you can try is running a stability test like Prime95 Blend, etc and see if your PSU caves in under heavy load.

Okay, it's not available for RMA from newegg. Will try to contact the manufacturer tommorow. Thanks guys.
