I just upgraded my rig with these stuff

A8N32-SLI mobo
Athlon64 4000+
OCZ modstream 550w
OCZ Titanium 2X1GB PC3200
GeForce 7900GTX

Computer run and boot fine, but sometimes I experienced random instant shutdown specially when I play game.
I know it looked like PSU problem, but I did not have this problem when I used Abit AN8 32X SLI with same configuration.

I read on some forums that A8N32-SLI have problem with antec PSU.

Any though?

Are you monitoring your temps? Have you run any mem tests?

My computer running at default speed, no overclock at all.
I have not run mem test, but I will do that today.
Yesterday I play half life2 episode one for two hours and nothing happened...stange.
Like I said before, temperaturenormal, 46c cpu and 50c gpu full load.
The funny thing is this never happened with my abit an8 32X SLI.
Is it possible because of the mobo?
Asus mobo is giveaway from my friend and he said everything is running well with same modstream PSU.

Have read somewhere in the forum were they said that this board doesn't work well with OCZ mem but I can't find it now :roll:
