My system + 5870 killed my HX1000W


Recommended Posts

I installed a XFX 5870 11/3/09. My system run great and then 20 days later I started getting crashes with mainly gray screens and sometimes the monitor appeared to go to sleep. I tried everything and for a month I just kept having issues until late Dec. my HX1000W gave up. I knew the turn around time for a RMA over the holidays was going to be slow. I just happened to have two ******** EA5000W PSUs on hand. I put one on the mobo and the second on the 5870 and my VelociRaptors and other drives. My system has never run so good. I still felt like I needed more power and $400 for a 1500W PSU with all I already have in PSUs wasn't for me.


The fantastic folks at Corsair worked out a deal with me and I got two

HX850W PSUs! My system is in an OakExpress roll top desk so I have a nice little shelf to set #2 PSU on. It has never run so good!


Thanks Corsair
