Sorry for misleading you there - I was trying to reference the modular cables that you could use in place of your current sleeves (assuming that you can relocate the sleeves from your existing PSU).
Liquidsnak has linked to some PSU's that you could buy - given your specs, don't skimp on the PSU

Here are several sleeving options:

Sleeving/Heatshrink - FrozenCPU.com *

The 1/2" sleeving will open to accomodate lots of wires. The only iffy bit would be the ATX connector. All of these will help bundle wires together Some zip ties are helpful so that the ends do not fray open.

Also available in a kit from newegg.com

Alright! I will order the Antec Earthwatts 650 you recommended me and the cable binding kit. Hope it goes great, I'll post here if I need some help installing it. Never installed a PSU before.

It's a fairly friendly procedure. I have the earthwatts line, and I love it. My power bill went down ^_^

Though if you haven't ordered yet, you might consider the 750 model

hi need help,
SONY VAIO GVN-I recenty updated my lap top to Window 7 32 bit updated the BIOS and updated drivers. my lap top does not turn on when I shut it down and let it rest for a long period, it is like it gets lost in the lupe. It turns on when i power it down then power up i again, and windows starts fine. However when it about to go into sleep mode it says windows recoverd from an unexpected shutdown.... sometime it goes into a loop from power off and powering on . I spoke to a sony represetative and from remote access he made sure y drivers were updated. I have done some reading and it looks like it might be a driver issue ... i want to find out what is causing my pc to turn off while it powered on and what is stopping it from starting when i press the on button.S360

Are you shutting the lid before it completely sleeps or shuts down?

Also, you should probably make a new thread, since this it a totally separate issue.

The free versions of Memtest do most certainly support more than 4GB of Ram. Memtest for Windows can be run in Windows and seems to find problems faster than the CD version "first link".

You would run one test for each CPU core then divide the free memory between them and input that number into each test and run them all at once.

The second test runs outside the OP system and you can test all your memory with it but it's an ISO and needs to be burned to a CD.

Ok I ran Memtest like you said and after about 15min, I got 3 errors. Not good at all. I'm guessing I should get replacements for the RAM I got from newegg? Also btw, the stock intel i5 fan was too weak so I replaced it with a Corsair A70 Dual fan heatsink/fan and the edge of the 2nd fan (due to its LARGE size) is slightly bumping one of the RAM sticks. Is this a major problem? If so hopefully I can return it to bestbuy and exchange it for the smaller one or the water cooling one.

I really don't want to pay to ship the bad RAM back to Corsair, then wait a few days to get a replacement. Maybe I should buy a different brand of RAM? I don't mind paying some more money. I feel bad that I got a power supply already, it's worth replacing a 4year old one anyway huh? Probably more power efficient too.

Do you feel the inbuilt Windows memory diagnostic test isn't thorough enough?

PS: This is not a rhetorical question. The answer maybe No.

I just used the windows built in memory test and I got no problems there. Whats the deal, do I need new memory?
