Windows 7: BSOD During Civilization 5

Conduit malware is gone.

After cleaning the fans and vents, the GPU sits in the low 30C for situations such as web browsing.

Benchmark Preset 1080:
Attachment 307972

Benchmark 1080 8X AA
Attachment 307973

I can't restore to a time before I installed Civ 5 expansion. The oldest one I have is Feb 19.

I suppose one way to rule out if it is a software issue rather than a hardware issue would be to try using your CPU's integrated HD2000 graphics for a short while.

You would need to remove your 7850 GPU and then connect your monitor to the motherboard VGA slot or DVI slot depending on which it has. And then test the game using that.

If it is still crashing using the integrated graphics then it would suggest a software issue and we can go from there.

Steve I think you nailed it with the power supply.
Your post #23 was great.

I doubt if that power supply will even do what the label indicates.

Personally the first things I would do if it was my computer would be to do all the necessary scans to make sure the system was clean of all infection and then get a proper power supply.

I haven't got any issues since I cleaned the system.

So I should reinstall Intel Rapid Storage Technology as suggested by essenbe post #23, right?

I was thinking of getting this PSU. I don't see myself upgrading the PC future so is the PSU excessive? I am open to any other PSU recommendations.

Also, for PSU do they all have the same standard size?

No, that is not excessive as all. The minimum recommended for your system is 500W. So, you are just a little over the minimum. I always buy bigger than I really need. It keeps it from working hard all the time, so it runs cooler and will last longer. It can also allow for future upgrades. If you can afford it, I would suggest the HX or AX model. They are modular so you only use the cables you need and it makes the build go much faster and easier. You don't have to hide unused cables. As far as size, in this range most are pretty much the same size. Just measure the one you have now. This size range is pretty much ATX standard size. It should be 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 6.3"(L).

I don't think I will get an HX or AX series PSU. But you would definitely recommend the TX650M over the TX650, correct?

I just measured my PSU dimensions and they are 5 X 3.1 X 5.5. There was very little room to fit a PSU with larger dimensions. So how accurate are the 5.9 X 3.4 X 6.3 dimensions listed on a PSU?

I am pleased you resolved your issue, it would have been useful for you to have mentioned that in your previous post.

Sorry about that. I wanted to make sure I put my system under load for a good amount of time before declaring things OK. Definitely appreciate the help though .

That is another reason many use different cases. Room to do things.
Your don't have to mount the new power supply the way the old power supply is installed.
Sometimes you can mount the power supply on it's side as long as you have the room and the fans are not obstructed for proper air supply. You might have to do a little drilling in the back of the case for mounting screws.

All around it's better just to get another case that will meet your needs.
They come in all price ranges.
Let us know what you decide to do.

For my current case the issue is the width clearance. There is a metal bracket that is used to hold the case cover in place.

A new PSU would need to be mount the same as currently because of the MB placement.
