MOBO: MSI 970A G46 AM3+ < Poor match for the 8350 very unstable board with a very poor thermal design.

Get yourself something better in the PSU department e.g

XFX 550W: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb...

Antec VP-450: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-vp450

What graphics card are you running ?


Tier five - Replace immediately. These units are NOT recommended for any system, no matter the purpose. Reference to higher tiered models for a better and potentially money-saving unit

I was afraid that something like that would be the answer. I'd call that bottom-of-the-barrel, but barrel manufacturers might file defamation lawsuits against me. Get that back to the store and choose a power supply from a reputable manufacturer. Tom's Hardware's <A HREF="http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su...">power supply tier list</A> is a good start.

You don't necessarily need a high-end Seasonic, but you do at least want to not have a power supply that will give you a decent shot at some quality time with the nice people at the fire department.

No problem, glad you said something before that PSU damaged your stuff! I hate companies like that, not everybody's going to know what to look for in a PSU.
