Thanks for the reply but the card is only installed when I require an extra monitor then removed and placed back in its box with anti-static wrapping. GTS 450 should be able to run on my PSU with the 560ti anyway.

Skyrim should run maxed out without mods fine and it does the gpu is running normally, I know what your saying but this is on ALL gpu intensive applications e.g. Games. The ASUS Graphics card is a 560ti and comes with 1GB standard, more than enough for Skyrim @ 1080p. When the card runs normally again, it runs at 60fps everywhere which is how I run it.

Just to inform you all upon my misfortune with the computer, I have found it was the PSU as originally suspected along with the other members. Six months old and having faults that shouldn't exist on a PSU of this age. I am going to RMA the PSU and then sell it and in the process of flogging the PSU I will purchase another PSU. (Not from Antec!)

I don't believe Antec make bad power supplies, maybe I was unlucky but 6 months is way too short of a life span.A hard life it was, but then again my OCZ did endure 3 years.

*I personally think the PSU was a bit fragile and was stressed a little much in some infrequent situations, but again this isn't right and it works but with the power supply emitting squealing, squeaking noises with a lot of other crazy crap *especially at power on*. It's a great shame as it was silent.

Thanks for all the help anyway.

You should go with a Seasonic, if you can get one in your area.

Corsair has a 7 year warranty, but I wouldn`t go below 750 watts. Trust me, I know.

For what it's worth, that is who made his current power supply,

Antec vs. Seasonic?

Seasonic is the OEM for a lot of Antec's PSU's.

Ya, I have a list of who makes what for who. The ones labeled SeaSonic are supposed to be better quality.

That link is just another forum talking about power supplies, you really can`t believe anything said there.

My Corsair HX750 ( made by Channel Well Technology, according to this old 2009 article ) is performing flawlessly, so far, knock on wood.

Thermaltake, OCZ and CoolerMaster are other names to consider.

I guess its just luck of the draw, unfortunately things by all the top brands go bad from time to time or are even DOA.

Touch wood my Antec has been fine for a couple of years now.

Paul, what are your core temps with that OC ?

With a modest 4.0 OC my core temps are 19, 21, 20, 24.

Obviously depends on ambient temp for the idle temps, but here they are right now.

I am running offset mode too, so it's pretty much irrelevant. At idle it will run at 1.6ghz at 0.960v, under load it will run 4.6ghz at 1.270v.

I`m still trying to figure out how to get it to throttle down when it`s OC`d. It just stays at 4 GHz, stepping is enabled and all the settings are the same as when it runs at the stock 3.4 GHz so idk.

AddRAM, do you have both EIST and C1E enabled? And I think you have to set CPU V to auto
