    One still needs a 12V power supply...

    so its cheating a little as only a fraction of the total power is 3.3 and 5V

    This and losing cables is enough for me to not purchase a modular power supply; that and connectors that can fail.

    I guess that is 1 year continuous? so if one games 21 hours a week, that is still 8 years

    I seem to recall a claim that all polymer capacitors, no matter the make, are about equal.

    You no like Bestec?

    and to think I rebuilt one of mine with the finest capacitors this world has to offer...

    Let's say it is at 78% load and a clock drop would take it to 80% speed; now when it drops it is again near 100% load?

    Engineers can be a little caustic at times; it takes a little getting used to.

    I imagine you have had your own frustrations with people thinking they know how to cure an ailment.

    How much does electricity cost on Christmas Island? I imagine it is diesel powered.

    I assume the computer could sleep; I would expect a power supply to last a lot longer than 5 years under such conditions.

    Absolutely… if a short pulls 62 amps and so does not trigger shutdown, that is a LOT of heat.

    Any way to get some oil into the old fan's bearing?

    Electrolytic capacitors can age faster when not used than when in use.

    Interesting, I also have a supply whose fan is controlled by the PC mother board.

    I'm not sure I even have a power supply that isn't at least 10 years old!

    While I tend to agree, I would test the RAM with MemTest first.

    Most modern supplies can handle around 90-264V, and you are running 220V, so I doubt voltage sag is to blame.

    Stop over-clocking and see how that helps.

    There are 12, 5 and 3.3V outputs, if only one is regulated (group regulation) then when the supply is loaded it adjusts to keep that one voltage the same, and then others can be affected. If the...

    Good to know, thanks.

    but what do you mean by "that doesn't take load into consideration"

    This link suggests a possible grounding issue, so that would be the first thing to check.

    Assuming only capacity is increased (and quality not decreased) then life and reliability may be increase by over-rating; efficiency may also improve and with it the fan noise may be less.
