I've spent so much money on that damn PSU, I didnt even think that it would be the issue, but, I'll test and post some screenshots today (not home right now).
I've looked over the voltages, the 5v seems a bit off, and the cpu is getting 1.32something. I'll post acurate numbers a bit later when I re-check.
The PSU was factory sealed, fresh draft, QC test passed, but who knows.
Shouldnt a PSU problem be obvious or manifest itself during stress testing like I did with orthos?
Also that doesnt explain the desktop crashes...
thx for the quick reply btw
Edit: I dont know why but I've avoided reinstalling windows for some reason... that was my 1st thought realy but i've used that install disk for countless systems (VLK)..
Maybe it's the gigabyte motherboard.. it changes it's clocks and voltages even when the DES is off
I think that is the Intel EIST function in bios...
