If not then the number is not actually 450 its actually somewhere around 400 so anything more than a 650 watt is overkill

The Seasonic Focus Plus or the Seasonic Prime / Prime Ultra or the Corsair RMx are all good options
The AX1000 is way overkill
ok It's same as kill-a-att so efficiency wasn't taken into account. I don't think 650w is overkill cause psu is most effective on 50% load. The only reason i was looking at the AX1000w is because I can't get it here in South Africa. Newegg South Africa is not actually in south Africa so shipping cost, customs etc will still need to be factored in . I will link to a view online shops we get here that I usually look at


This still don't answers my question. Do you people still think my PSU is at fault here???
