    I definately think that's very wise as something is very wrong there (see previous 3 posts). ;)

    I just took the pc apart, removed the motherboard. Couldn't see any point where it would be shorting :\ put the pc back together and turned it on. Tried running Sandra and it froze

    Then on the next powerup I tried putting that tv out adapter into the video card again, as this caused it to freeze before. I didnt move the case at all but putting this adapter in froze it. I remember even plugging in a speaker cable to the soundcard would freeze it before.

    I haven't a clue what to do next :\

    Try taking it all out and running it on a bench, to completely be sure there are no shorts - just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there (take air for an example).

    SileNceR knows all about killing PSU's while connecting fans ay mate :P

    did you try that spare PSU or even a higher rated one to see if it got rid of the stability issues..?

    memory is another possibility here... maybe reseat the ram and/or swap with another stick to test that...

    and do all this in the "open case" style SileNceR suggested, just to be sure

    I tried a spare PSU..same problem. same thing with running the pc with minimal hardware (no cd rom, soundcard etc.)

    I'll try the ram tomorrow, and do the open case test :)
