Hi, I have a problem with my PC shutting off when the 7970 is under heavy load. Was wondering if I needed a new PSU to replace my old one. I have a SilverStone 1200W PSU.
I know when you look at this it might be a silly question, but I've done some searching around long enough to know it is way more than enough. I was hoping if you guys could help me figure out if it is my PSU or if it's something else.
Cooler Master V10
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
12GB 1600MHz RAM
ASUS Xonar Essence STX
500GB WD Caviar Black
SilverStone 1200W SST-ST1200
XFX HD 7970 GHz
Gigabyte GTX 650
what version of the 7970 do you have, my brother had an issue with his 7970 because the heatsink made the card flex in the motherboard. I would test another psu if possible or test your 7970 is another system.
It will be. Problem is that I have a second GPU. Nvidia GTS 650 in this PC too. I run a Hybrid AMD GPU + Nvidia PhysX. I've roughly added up how much my PC uses. Should be a bit over 660W. I could be wrong.
Edit: Also, that 660 PSU doesn't have enough cables for this system.
