Power supply problem, need suggestions
Hi guys, it's been a little while since I posted in here. My build has been working great for 3 years and suddenly has begun to have issues. Firstly, I don't know if it is entirely the PSU being the problem, it is just something I suspect. None of my components are overclocked and my GPU is underclocked.
A bit more specifics; I've had a Corsair HX1000 for quite some time, ~10 years. It has done everything great, until I decided to watercool my GPU. Now, when gaming, it heats up very hot (almost too hot to touch) and then my computer will crash to automatic restart.
Reason why I think it is the PSU: It didn't crash or get too hot until I watercooled the GPU. I think the extra frames to my ElGato USB 3.0 capture device + the 144hz monitor that I have is causing my GPU to work overtime and is sucking the juice from the PSU. I have 2x 8gb sticks of RGB ram (forgot brand), 2 SSDs, 2 SATA 7.2k hard disks, 2 M.2 SSDs, 1 pump, 1 CD+DVD-RW, 2x 120 fans, 3x 140 RGB fans, an i3-4330 under water, and a GTX 1080 under water.
Any ideas? Suggestions for a cool running PSU, or do I need more watts? Thanks guys!
