    Download and run Resplendence Software - WhoCrashed, automatic crash dump analyzer freeware and post a screen-shot of the report.
    If your system froze instead of a BSOD, run the windows Event Viewer and look for logged errors that occurred shortly before your system barfed.

    On rare occasions, any brand new hardware can be defective, including a power supply.

    The psu might be from FSP.

    For me, FSP is a mixed bag, some units are pretty good and some aren't good at all.
    Can you buy a 450 - 550 watt Antec, Seasonic, or XFX power supply that is in your price range?

    I wouldn't think of buying any power supply unless at least one of the following review sites gives it a good review:
    • JonnyGuru
    • HardOCP
    • HardwareSecrets
    • PCPER
    • TechPowerUp

    From FSP Group - Wikipedia:

    Fortron Source Power Group (FSP Group) is a Taiwanese company that manufactures power supply units for PCs. FSP is the 5th largest power supply vendor in the World. Their major power supply product lines include:
    • PC / Industrial Power Supplies
    • ODM or OEM Power Supply
    • Open Frame
    • LCD TV Power
    • Adapters

    FSP Group has global representation with branch offices in UK, Germany (Willich and Augsburg), USA (San Jose, Irvine and Chino), Russia, Japan, India, Korea, China and most recently in France.

    FSP developed their own retail brand "FSP" in 2003. They use fans manufactured by Yate loon electronics and Protechnic electric. Power supplies manufactured by FSP are sold by Antec, Sparkle Power International (SPI), OCZ, SilverStone Technology, Thermaltake, Nexus and Zalman under their own names.

    Retail Power Supply Units sold under the FSP brand include:
    • Aurum
    • Everest
    • Epsilon
    • BlueStorm
    • Saga
    • Bestec

    <br />
    Here are the specs of the Fortron, still searching for reviews:<br />
    <table style="text-align:center; vertical-align:middle;">
    <thead>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="9" style="font-weight:bold;text-align:center; vertical-align:middle;">Output Table</td>

    <tr>
    <td>AC Input</td>

    <tr>

    <td>+5V</td>
    <td>+12V1</td>
    <td>+12V2</td>
    <td>+12V3</td>
    <td>+12V4</td>
    <td>-12V</td>
    <td>+5Vsb</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Max Output Current</td>
    <td>24A</td>
    <td>24A</td>
    <td>18A</td>
    <td>19A</td>
    <td>-</td>
    <td>-</td>
    <td>0.5A</td>
    <td>3.5A</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Max Combined Power</td>
    <td colspan="2">123W</td>
    <td colspan="4">432W</td>
    <td colspan="2">23.5W</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Total Power</td>
    <td colspan="8">500W</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Peak Power</td>
    <td colspan="8">550W</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    Note that the Max Combined Power is only for one or two rails above each of the three Max figures. Those three Max figures cannot be added together for the total output power. Also, the 432W Max for the 12V rails is less than the current draw figures for each rail (18 + 19) = 37, 37 X 12 = 444. Also note that each of the two 12V rails could draw more than the max amps spec, and have OCP kick in.

    WHY are you apologizing for the 1333 memory? I'm far less impressed with the IMO cheapo PSU's you are considering. Once you get past 1600 in memory speed, the diminishing returns graph drops off like a cliff. All the over 2000 memory speeds have little to nothing to do with actual performance. Yes I've tried and use those speeds, no difference.

    @CescoAiel
    Can you possibly borrow a decent quality power supply from a friend?
    Maybe a friend of yours knows someone else with a decent unused power supply.

    As I recall from a thread several years ago, power supplies cost much more in Australia than in the USA, even when you account for the exchange rate differences.

    Regarding PSUs: I was just going by what my local dealer has (easier to get, easier to return if necessary)! They've borrowed me a Fortron 600W unit, until next weekend, just to help troubleshooting this issue... (Obviously they hope I'll buy it (or at least a similar one) if it resolves the problem...)

    I don't mind spending more money on a PSU, *if* it resolves the problem... Being a casual gamer, I've already sunk more money in to this new machine than my budget allows (hey, I'm married *and* have kids! ) at this time...

    Regarding RAM speed: I wasn't aware of that performance cliff... Makes me feel not as bad about the 1333 RAM...

    Luckily I don't live in Australia... Prices here in NL are not *much* different from US...

    As noted above, the local shop borrowed me a Fortron 600W unit until next weekend... They use this exact model in all their builds (incl. up to medium-level gaming machines. And even the high-end ones they use this brand, just the 750W model), and claim they've never had stability issues with these!
    So not the greatest brand, as far as I can tell (although they are one of the biggest manufacturers WW and OEM for a lot of other brands, their quality seems to be mixed, depending on the product line), but if it works for troubleshooting, I'm all for it! ;)

    And that warrants an update on that subject: This PSU runs MUCH cooler than the CoolerMaster 430W unit did... The CM blew out really warm air, this one actually exhhausts air that feels cool!
    Haven't been able to run tests at high performance yet (just back from a business trip), but the CM exhaust was warm at idle too!

    *crossing fingers and toes, hoping the PSU was the culprit*

    Your test psu is rated for 432 watts combined on the 12 volt rails instead of 324 watts.
    It looks like the two identical power supplies had the same problem in your system.
    It's not likely but it is possible that the first two power supplies were defective.

    From what I've seen from several reviews, it appears that the the BeQuiet! power supply manufacturer in Germany makes good quality units.

    I probably haven't been clear about this, but I started with the CoolerMaster, because I didn't want to use an old PSU with new (more demanding) hardware, so this FSP one is only the 2nd PSU I am testing with...

    I will check them out, and will look to buy a better quality PSU if this testing confirms that it was the PSU!

    Well, it'd be awkward if you got THAT wrong!

    I have now been running Prime95 for a few hours, and so far so good (but then again, that never has been an issue, except with the RAM bit, but that may well have been the under-voltage causing issues. I will up the frequency again later on to see how that goes)...

    One thing I find interesting is that with this new PSU the exhaust not only stays way cooler, so do the board and CPU...

    A little comparison of the max temperatures measured:
    Max temp/PSU CoolerMaster 430W Fortron 600W
    CPU 65.3C 59.5C
    Northbridge 77C 67C
    Southbridge 37C 31C

    So I have a feeling we may (finally) be on to something, and the system was probably struggling to find the power it needed before...
    *crosses fingers* Only time will tell!

    EDIT: Just went to the BeQuiet! page, and then started searching in the area... I found a dealer who sells BeQuiet! PSUs, and they have the 'Be Quiet! Pure Power, 630Watt, ATX' unit in stock, and the price is reasonable as well (As it stands, it is only €25 more expensive than the FSP one I have got on loan!)...
    If my machine stays stable until next weekend (gives me 8 days to test, it never has been up and running for that long <G>), I will probably drive out and buy it!
    I esp. like the fact that - according to the specs on their site - it is modular too (and that at that price point!), so no more unnecessary cables in the case!

    In doing some bequiet! research, they don't manufacture their power supplies, they contract with several different OEM power supply manufacturers for psu designs that meet their specifications. This is the same way that Antec, Corsair and many other psu vendors operate.

    I easily found two bequiet! psu reviews and it looks like it is a good 80+ bronze rated unit. It was originally sold in 2011, uses a semi-modular cable setup and has a 3 year warranty. Both reviews mentioned that power cable length was on the short side but it looks like bequiet! has since increased the length of the cables.

    From your lower temperatures with your borrowed psu, it appears that your CM psu was defective and possibly providing "dirty" power to your motherboard. Motherboards have voltage regulating circuits and your motherboard was probably working overtime to provide proper power.

    I prefer 80+ gold rated units because they use higher quality components and often have a 5 year warranty. The gold rated units have higher efficiency but it's debatable if their lower power consumption over the life of the psu will offset the higher initial cost. The electrical power cost savings depends on how much power is used and how many hours your system is running.

    Whoops! According to the review one of their OEM providers is... FSP!

    The newer ones seem to be from a different manufacturer tho...
    I don't mind the partial modular part... You always need the mainboard and CPU cables anyway!

    Last night the machine rebooted again, but this time it was a "normal" BSOD on the audio driver (HDAUDBUS.sys)! Keeping an eye on that, but right now it is running Prime95 (Custom w/ 90+% RAM in use) with the memory clocked at 800MHz (DDR3-1600) and 1.65V, and it has been at it several hours now! (CPU Core temperature is showing 59.8C)
