I know it says it comes with a 4+4 pin cpu connector, but I didn't get one. This PSU was purchased in late '06, and at the time I didn't need a 4+4 pin.

Would this be a better PSU?

Don't go all gun ho on the PSU yet. A PSU is a PSU so long as it delivers stable power and is reliable. Your PSU has been highly awarded by reviews and from what I been reading isn't that bad at all. You don't have a super highly demanding rig so it should be fine as ling as its not defective. Flip flop the ram sticks try to boot each time with another stick and another GPU if you havnt yet done so.


Do you have any buddies who can test your ram and mobo for you?

I bought a new PSU an hour ago, and short story it's not the PSU that's the problem. Guess I'm getting a different motherboard.

Yeah. I'd definitely steer clear of ASRock. My sister and another friend both had ASRock and both ditched them after a short while. They seem to be ok at stock in a light system, but anything new, or advanced like SLI, then forget it. Will freeze, crash and BSoD like nothing else. ::

I could have told you that its not the PSU it handled startup when every component is drawing peak amps your best bet it to rule out ram compatibility I have had my main rig do that over a dozen times and it was always the ram craping out on me. I think I used every main brand other them muskin at this point Tho it could just as well be the motherboard but rams easier to test...

I've tried three different brands of ram, and it still locks up.

That's about the only thing I haven't tried yet. I'll do that now.

well you could pull the mobo from the PC case as well it might be getting slightly bent and a trace might be pulling apart.
