New Corsair HX520W and Graphics Card Problems.


Recommended Posts



I have just installed a HX520W (replacing an aging Enermax 460W PSU which didnt even have PCIe connectors, I have to use an adapter).


Trouble is this NEW PSU seems to have more trouble running my graphics card than the old!!! :(


If I try 3DMark it either crashes to desktop or just locks up with either a blank screen or a pink coloured screen with lines down it.


The card was solid as a rock with the old PSU and thats the only thing I have changed? Any ideas?




Asus P5K Deluxe/Wifi-AP

2Gb Crucial Ballistix 1067Mhz DDR2

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (stock)

HIS IceQ3 Radeon X1900XT PCIe

SoundBlaster Audigy 2ZS

Windows Vista Ultimate 32Bit


Edit: I have just re-set the CCC to defaults and 3DMark06 seems ok again, no idea whats going on and why I would need to do that for a new PSU? I'll keep an eye on it and post more later if I have troubles. I dont actually game much on my system anymore really.


I bought the PSU to get a bit of peace and quiet. :)
