Hi there guys!
I upgraded my system a while ago and I was wondering if my PSU is slowing down my computer, especially slowing my graphicscard.
I get some pretty bad performance in both new and old games.
For example my 3DMark'06 score, with my setup it should be around 10.500 points, but what I get is just 6558.
The CPU score is just what it should, but my graphicscard score is way too low.
Also my computer freezes when I connect a portable harddisk, or it sometimes just shutsdown and I have to reset the PSU using the power switch on the PSU.
Overheating is not it, I think everything part is at an very acceptable temperature!
from Everest: CPU max seen at 45 after some games, and graphicscard never seen above 75 degrees celcius.
