I don't have a PSU tester, but I will pull out the multimeter and manually check it.

Well, I sat down and checked each and every wire with the multimeter. Everything is outputting what it should.

The interesting thing is this: I accidentally shorted it once, and the PSU wouldn't start up right for a while. Even before that, when I turned it off and back on, it wouldn't turn on correctly all the time....

I will have to call thermaltake and talk to them about it on monday, which is rather annoying. I might just have to bite the bullet and buy a new one.

I am eager to hear about your new system and hope to see some benchmarks. Good luck sorting out the PSU/RAM/ETC details.

What benchmarks are you guys looking for?

And I will post some pictures up when I get a better camera.

I know you probably don't want to get a new power supply, but think on the altenative

Your system is too nice to be taking chances on a faulty power supply (If it is indeed faulty).

As far as benchmarks - you could try PCMark Vantage or 3DMark Vantage (trial only good for single run)

To be honest, I would LOVE a new power supply. Just not eager to drop another $150-200 on a good one...

And it has worked just fine for all this time....

Any of the Unigine video tests would be nice. They're pretty cool to look at, too.

Heaven is the newest, Tropics came before that. Sanctuary is the oldest. I believe they go DX11, DX10, DX9 in the order I listed them, though all will run on any version of DirectX.
