Default Never test your psu?? 1033 errors

Well i keep getting 1033 code bsod's when my comp is at full load (gta iv, crysis 2). seems to have started right after getting my second 5770 card for crossfire. but 1033 errors could be memory but i passed memtest and prime95.

i did order a psu though. a corsair 650TX V2 for $90, 53amps on 12 volt. kinda was an impulse buy, 53amps should be enough for my system right? (see sig)

What is the psu you have currently? Give the brand, wattage, and amps on each 12 volt rail. Also give the brand of your video card. I'll tell you if you're pushing that power supply to much. I take assumption it does not happen on idle, only on games.

its in my sig. pc power cooling 420 watt 12v30amp. i know its not the best for crossfire but its a good brand i thought maybe it would overvolt alittle and it would just run alittle hotter. guess not

2 5770's, an overclocked Phenom x6 and the rest of the system including raid on 420Watts???

Your off your head. Yes the PSU is the problem. There's no reason why the Corsair shouldn't run that system, especially as that 650W is probably only on the 12V line - a good thing. Get it fired in, and do some stress testing.

Man, that's quite scary actually- never underestimate the importance of a decent PSU.

PC P&C make great PSUs--the issue isn't the quality of the PSU, or even the wattage. It's the fact that he's trying to OC and crossfire on 30 amps.

That's why I run PC power and cooling power supplies exclusively: they are very well built!

yeah i was just trying to overclock my psu, i didnt want to have to buy a new psu. i really wanted that corsair h70 water cooler.

but i learned my lesson you cant put a new supercharger in without changing the gearbox

I'd dissagree. Quality is important if you want stable volts under load. Otherwise you'll just get BSOD's, just like having an underatted PSU.

"Or even the wattage" then you go on to say "It's the fact that he's trying to OC and crossfire on 30 amps". Erm, simple electrical, DC Volts x Amps = Wattage. And as the Voltage is constant, 12V, you can say here that wattage or amperage rating is too low.

Besides, you can tell it's a poor quality, or a questionable branded, PSU when they rate it at 430Watts when the 12V line can only handle 360W. Although technically speaking, the other lines probably supply the remaining 70Watts (5V & 3V), it's common practice for decent PSU manufactures to give the wattage of the 12V lines only - to give the buyer a real sense of what the PSU can actually handle, as all the power hungry hardware is supplied by the 12V lines, and your HDD, DVD-ROM, etc etc, are negliable in wattage. In addition, is this it's peak load (i.e. limited in time to how long it can supply that ammount of current/wattage) or is it it's contiuous rating? Very important.

Essentially, what you are trying to do is run an overclocked 6 core CPU and crossfire on 360 Watts. At full load, your original system config, with only one GFX card, would be getting too close for comfort to its limit. And if it is only it's peak load as opposed to continous rating (on the PSU that is), then your in seriously dangerous territory indeed.

Go and get that decent gear box! although, I'd prefer the analogy that the PSU is the engine - it's that important.

That is why PC power and cooling is a good choice for computer power supplies! They are very high quality. Of course, you do need a power supply rated to handle the load.
