Solved PSU going bad? Tags: Power Supplies Random Shutdown Sapphire Thermaltake Samsung SSD Corsair Asus G.SKILL Seagate Last response: July 20, 2014 11:02 AM in Components Share AMDFaith July 20, 2014 9:30:52 AM So about a week ago, I was typing a solution here on Tom's and my computer just shuts off.. reboots instantly into safe boot prompt. Booted normally and it hasn't happened again. I did notice that the video card was really the only thing that noticeably shut off, everything kept on except for the GPU. Not a stutter in fan speed. So how do I go about finding the cause of that reboot? I've stress tested CPU and GPU, looking into memtest86 to test the RAM. -FX-8350 cooled by H100i -Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 -Sapphire R9 270X toxic -G.skill sniper ddr3 1866 -Thermaltake 850W Smart M series -Corsair 600T case -Samsung 128Gb Evo SSD -Seagate 1000GB HDD More about : psu bad Reply to AMDFaith AMDFaith July 20, 2014 9:43:02 AM The only component that I really lack confidence in is the PSU.

I'm already looking for a new PSU. Have the AX860 in my sights due to it's fully modular design, worried about the fan though. Spinning only under load it may provide extra noise. any suggestions?
