Lollies,
In my estimation your likely still fine with the Corsair 850 as it's a premium PSU with thoughtfully designed rail supplies. But more is always better.....but I would be totally surprised that this turned out to be the 850's issue.

The stand-offs were already in place. It's not just lying inside of it touching everything.

Lollies if the stand off's where already in place......where they in the correct place? One off in another place or an extra stand off added could be as bad as none in place.....it only takes one short to smoke something. I'm not saying this is the case here but maybe you could tell us how the standoffs came to be already screwed in? Who did it and did they get checked, did all the mobo screws go in and tighten properly. Of note though is if this was the case with your build it would have smoked up right away not a monitor change later !

They are molded into the case itself, the holes just line up with the motherboard. If that was the case everything would be out anyways.

I want to try an older card and see if that works because I have found a few posts about people with Asus boards who upgrade to the 580 and have the same problem. This is only after they upgrade from a different card. May or may not be the problem but I have no additional card and my friend is anal so I can't use his.

Are the latest bios installed on your asus board by chance? i may have asked already but as this thread is growing its hard remember what we have and havn't tried. But i would convince ur buddy into letting u use his vido card, wont hurt it.

What computer are you posting from, Lollies? Can you snag the card out of it?
