bobmitch Posted January 2, 2011 Share Posted January 2, 2011 I have an XH850 which is about 8 or so months old. In the past few days...I have had some issues with external hard drive and flash drives in my USB 2.0 hubs...sometimes locking up on me. Then today, I got a RAID error encountered and had to reset my array. I am figuring that one of my hard drives is going...for it is a refurb VelociRaptor that I received about a year ago...GLFS 300 GB...BUT...I want to make sure that this is the issue... How can I be sure that my HX850 isn't the culprit? The only recent addition to my system was to replace an EVGA GTX470 with an EVGA GTX 580, which is totally in spec with this PSU. Right now...I also have an APC XS1300 Battery Backup that I have had on my system for a couple of years. According to the power meter in the front...when idle...the system is only drawing 165W. Under full graphics load with the 580...it is 385W. The hard drive errors are now happening on their own and becoming more frequent...but started when I did a virus scan of my HDD using Kaspersky 2011. I just did a fresh installation of my hdd in the past week...so I am not sure what I am seeing. Could the PSU be causing these errors? My system has been working flawlessly up to now...for over a year...with only the addition of the 580, which I cannot believe would be giving the PSU any problems....
