Excellent points. And since the OP has not said whether overclocking is a goal or not, maybe it would be best to wait until more information is available.

Rather than turn this into an internal "discussion" on the merits of top end verses budget motherboards, can we please wait to hear from the Original poster

Thanks you Nige.
We do need the OP to inform us what is the intended use of this computer.

Well if the OP wants to find out if he has a good enough PSU he should try this eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The most trusted PSU Wattage Calculator that should put that one to bed

I agree with the use of the eXtreme calc when sizing up PSU needs. And I absolutely agree that using a quality PSU is a must. But I note the OP said he has a 700W Pure Power supply. 700W is plenty and while Pure Power may not be well known in the US, it is a highly regarded PSU maker in Europe and I note their Pure Power 700W L8 Series PSUs is 80 PLUS certified and has received good reviews.

It is important for all to understand achieving 80 PLUS certification means the supply maintained very high efficiency across a full range of expected loads. For any power supply to achieve a "flat" (not to mention high and flat) efficiency rating requires (1) quality design, (2) quality, tight tolerance parts, and (3) quality construction techniques - regardless the brand name on the case or the parts inside. This is exactly why Rosewill, previously shunned for low quality, has been receiving high professional and user review scores for their 80 PLUS certified PSUs in recent years.

Of course, even the best makers in the world will have an occasional lemon. So if power is in doubt, swapping in a known good PSU while troubleshooting is not a bad idea. But if the problem remains with the spare supply, no need to replace that Pure Power PSU. It is a quality supply with more than enough horsepower.

Yes Itaregrid my interest as you know is in hardware more than software well interest probably the wrong wording I just find it easier to visualize the problem.
Now the only reason I asked him to test the power rails is because of what I have read in Scott Mueller's text books and who quotes that the PSU is a very underrated component when it comes to fault finding and i just like to eliminate the rudy obvious if you get my drift.


This is a piece of test of hid I also found in Toms hardware site is this I always quote in a little ditty I wrote for testing PSU rails with HW Info Voltage Rails - Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications

I find it such a good reference after reading about POwer_Good signal and the like.

Now as for brands I am a fan of Corsair, Seasonic Antec and Enermax but Corsair is is the one I laways buy. Now having said all that it has to be remembered too that each brand is not manufactured by the same companies and even Corsair uses different companies to manufacture and therein lies their model and therein lies what you are saying re lemons and I am guessing too that it might even be like cars that are made on Fridays LOL!! when everyone is itching to knock off and go home.
