    It's been running stable on 4 iterations of Prime 95 for 8 hours now (going to let it continue to run for several hour longer at least), so I'm thinking it may have been the Capstone just crapping out. Sucks that it was just out of warranty, but whatever. It lasted the guaranteed period, and that's really all you can ask for.

    What's a good unit on a budget these days? I don't mind this 550VX being a backup unit, but I'm not wanting to use it long-term. I'll be by a Fry's this time next month, if that helps.

    I stopped it after 49 hours of 4 instances of Prime 95 running stable. I'm pretty convinced it was the power supply at this point. Like I said, I don't really want to run this old 550VX long-term, so what's a good unit on a reasonable budget these days?

    And yet it might be the GPU you need to stress.

    Would that explain the random overnight reboots though, that have seemingly gone away since going to the 550VX?

    BitFenix Formula 450/550/650w
    Corsair TX 550/650
    Corsair Vengeance 550/650
    BitFenix Whisper M 450/550/650
    Cougar GX-F 550/650
    Thermaltake Toughpower GX1 500/600
    Cooler Master MWE Gold 550/650
    BeQuiet PurPower 11 500/600
    Those are all pretty good budget units based on modern designs that are all below ~$75 MSRP or usually are on sale for less than that.

    BitFenix Whisper M or Corsair TX would be my main two choices, but everything else is pretty solid and some of the other units have better availability at retail depending on your location.

    Tistory is like Korean blogspot, and default url ends with .tistory.com. I checked other tistory blogs(*.tistory.com) with WOT too and it all has same reputation. Guess there are not enough WOT user here, just ignore it...
