Funny you said that becoz I am also using an AX1200 for this red rig. The rig occasionally runs itself into BSOD 124, which I highly suspect that it could have something to do with the PS.

What gen are you using? 124 is normally Vcore....however SB has a different issue that causes 124's <a href="http://www.overclock.net/t/1120291/solving-fixing-bsod-124-on-sandybridge-read-op-first/0_20">http://www.overclock.net/t/1120291/solving-fixing-bsod-124-on-sandybridge-read-op-first/0_20</a>
