    Notice the amps on the 12v rail. This should give you some future proofing too.

    thanks! I will order today or tomorrow, I've had this psu for awhile and am not surprised if it is probably faulty.

    Do you think this is probably the issue? 60 bucks is a bit much to throw at hopes. I will probably buy it either way. I am just curious.

    probability of psu causing the issue?
    I am pretty sure this crappy psu is all what remains other than my HDD. (I had the issue before upgrading these parts)

    I'd say pretty high but in any case it needed replacing anyway and also remember that PSU's get worse with age. If it's over 3yrs old then it's probably only giving out 75% of what it used to.

    Sure why not.. Hopefully the PSU was the culprit. I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)
