the power supply industry is not to forthcoming on what's what they are just try to sell units anyway they can it does not matter if you have 18 +12 volt rails if they are only low amperage you need enough watts yes but also a single +12 volt rail that can deliver enough amps to power everything demanding power from it all the watts in the world won't help if theres no amps there

Very true.

On top of that, the fact:
Manufacturer A says : 550W (meaning Peak wattage 550 continuous: 400W)
Manufacturer B says : 550W (meaning Peak wattage 700 continuous: 550W)

its not always clear and is a big difference

That's why it's always better to go way above what you will need, cuts out all the
worry, and you are ready for anything new that they might bring out in the future, as if I need to tell you this.

yes you need more headroom in your PSU I would recommend something more powerful and try for a branded recommended type such as corsair or thermaltake.

I suggest take a few minutes reading through this article.

I also suggest your try the ram checks and setup I suggested here

Well that is just what the specs say for the ram. I havent touched anything in bios because of the instability. I will give it a try after the new power supply comes in.

i did mem test and it went horrible. i tested each stick individually at 9-9-9-20 at 1.7 v and went perfect for 3 of them 3 passes per. and 1 stick had a couple errors. dropped down to 3 sticks and it is more stable. i played bioshock for 1 hour before any problems. oc'd proccesor at 3.8 ghz. Wonder if i need different ram. Going to run memtest overnight on the 6 sticks. see how many errors i get then. only did one successful pass last time. I am using ocz3g1333LV4GK

if you are overclocking this opens up a whole other realm settings become very crucial like I said up the voltage to the ram you may even need to bump CPU voltage to make everything stable but what I would recommend is putting everything at stock speeds and test your ram if all tests are good you know you just don't have the settings right for your overclock
