Solved Is this PSU sufficient for my build? Tags: Power Supplies Build Components Last response: April 2, 2012 7:27 AM in Components Share Ludo_Down April 2, 2012 6:29:48 AM Here's my build, I've had it awhile. The wattage is sufficient on paper but I know that doesn't always mean it really is. The system has trouble freezing under very low pressure, could it be the PSU?

Cheap (no name) PSU's have a reputation of being unreliable and not being stable at there peak output. In summary, get rid of that cheap PSU, and get a 500w or greater PSU.
