    im using a thermaltake 600w and i know its not an overheating problem, the max ive seen it is 57 so i was kinda guessing either power or memory issue but im leaning more towards the psu.

    Ihave 2 asus hd6950 2gb cards, and have been having issues with psu.
    Had a Antec 900 that worked great, traded it for a new 1000w from antec that crashed, this left me to use an old 750w psu I had around, this overheated and shut down if I ran in crossfire.
    Btw, got the 900 back in the case now and all is goooooood :wink:
