Thanks, I've already tried that. As well as underclocking the CPU back to stock 2.6. No difference whatsoever. Can just the EPS 8-pin line go bad? All the other connectors seem to be pumping juice just fine.
Assuming I need a new PSU, what should I get considering the fact that I likely need 700+ Watt output, plenty of connectors with decent length cables, and last but not least - very low noise?
