Default Re: EVGA GTX 570 overclocking issues.

Then again, a 3 year old 620watt power supply is probably not quite cutting it when you factor in the overclocking. I mean by the time you factor in your nice CPU overclock, you are just drawing too much when you overclock the card. Its not that you dont have enough overall juice because you are likely drawing in the low to mid 400 watt range, but just too much from a specific rail. I run a similar setup to what you have but with an 850 and I have no power issues at all.
