I'm not sure it will even be a psu issue, all voltages read normall, and power consumption looks fine. But if I can get hold of another PSU I will test it. The only thing that might push it towards the PSU is the error i get in Event Viewer where it says the issue was caused by 'Kernal Power' Which I have yet to find out exactly what means.
To be fair m8, 77c is not a dangerous tempreture anyway. 77c is a reading from coretemp which mesaures the TJunction which can handle up to 100c on this core. If I run my asus reader with coretemp there is a 12c differance. The asus reader being a direct read from the CPU. So I would estimate the hottest it being around 66-70c. As the q6000 can handle up to 72.8c or something stupid I dont see it being an issue, especially when the CPU is OC.
Just because the computer does not BSOD does mean it is likely to be a power issue, it could still be many things. It could also be the motherboard, which is what i'm prediciting it to be atm, but not being able to find any direct issue im still stumped.
I have managed however to make the system more stable, by removing some of the USB connections, the front mic/headphone ports and my two firewire connections. However, this doesn't help me in a direction closer to finding the issue, as it leaves me in the current situation of mobo/psu.
The graphics card is not overclocked and the current driver
version is 197.45 the most up to date. I've tried other drivers
, but the issue stays the same. As far as Im aware there is no graphics card issue, I have ran several tests and no errors/fails at all.
