Try running memtest for at least 3 passes, and also if that passes, you should find a quality PSU and try it out on your system. OCZ typically arent good quality PSUs.

That PSU should do you just fine and the reviews show that to. I would double check the drivers for your graphics card. Also check the temp of your graphics card and CPU. Do you have adequate fans in your case to keep the heat down?

The OCZ ZT Series 650 W proved to be a flawless power supply, with high efficiency between 82.1% and 86.8%, voltages closer to their nominal values all the time (3% regulation), very low noise and ripple levels, and a fully modular cabling system. All of that sells at a terrific price of USD 100, making this product a no-brainer if you are looking for the “perfect” power supply with a full modular cabling system. It costs only USD 10 more than the OCZ ZS Series 650 W, which has similar performance but no modular cabling system.

By the way, in this review we could clearly see that the ZT Series 650 W is not a ZS Series 650 W with the modular cabling system added; they use different components and design.

The other reviews all say the same and I have two friends running the same PSU and have not had any problems with them. Of course that does not mean you could not have got a bad one it happens but to conclude that it is bad just because it is OCZ would be incorrect.

I can't really find memtest on the Internet can you provide a link for me? And I'm too sure do I have adequate fan in my case, sorry If I sound like a retard, I'm just really new to pc building

Hi guys I think I know what's wrong, recently I checked my CPU temperature it's something like 50 degrees when I'm not even playing games on it. The temperature was really low when I turned my PC, and all games run smoothly, but after 4~7 hours(not too sure) my PC temperature will go up like to 50 without playing games. Anyone have tips for me to lower my CPU temperature

It's not my CPU , it's my GPU temperature, it gets high after a few games
