    Default Old PC (new(ish) gtx970

    Hello,

    I have an Asus P8H77-M PRO with 3770 i7 with 16gbDDR3 (4x4team1600), 1x Samsung 120 ssd and 1x 2tb 7,200 seagate storage, 6x usb peripherals.

    I had been using the onboard video and recently received a Windforce GTX970 as a hand me down.

    My old PSU was a Corsair VS450 all purchased in 2013, except the ssd which is 1 year old.

    I received a undersupply of power and subsequent reset with the 3.3V going to 2.960.

    I don't overclock the system.

    Is the PSU just old or is the 970 requiring a better source of power.

    I would be using www.umart.com.au as my purchasing site.

    Budget of $80AUD but willing to maybe push it to $120 (eek) but that's the pricing here in Australia .

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you test your current power supply with a different rig with similar components and see whether it does the same thing with it? Also, were you measuring voltages with a multimeter or software?

    multimeter ftw! It does fluctuate tho, I also found out the system has some sort of auto adapting over clocking using the Asus EPU ().
    I've turned it Max. power saving than auto, but noticed my frames have dropped but the system is stable.

    Suspecting there's not enough power. POWER!
