Default Re: Random power offs

Thanks ATIRAGEPRO for the advanced and interesting information/instructions .

However, I think that is too much work for me, and I don't have any soldering iron. Additionally I need to do something to the noise of my current power supply unit too.

So I am considering buying this power supply unit:

XFX Core Edition P1-550S-XXB9 550W (530 SEK), XFX Core Edition P1-550S-XXB9 550W - Ntaggregat - Hitta lgsta pris, omdmen och information (Swedish link)

It seems to have a 5 year "Limited" warranty (don't know what "Limited" means in this case). According to this review, XFX Core Edition 550W Review, "At least this time, the voltage remained in specification at all times...", which I assume is enough, however it states "...we once again see unusual +12V regulation that goes up when the PSU is taxed."

The wattage should also be sufficient for me as far as I understand from this site, eXtreme Outer Vision - eXtreme tools for computer enthusiasts, I do have my computer running 24/7 for several years, but chess does not require powerful video card.

I also attach a screenshot with temperatures during the prime95 "Blend"-test. During this test the computer shut down after only about 3 minutes (compared to something in between 1 hour and 12 hours during chess analysis).

Best regards,
