    Default Looking for PSU Recommendation

    Howdy! After a power outage a couple of weeks ago, my computer started randomly rebooting while gaming. I want to eliminate the PSU as the cause by getting a new one. My current power supply is an EVGA 850w T2.

    PC is a 9900k, 1080 Ti, an NVMe drive and pair of SSDs, and a couple of PCIe cards. I like having headroom to overclock but tend not to these days.

    Requirements: best possible performance (e.g. low ripple because I'm an audio but), quiet, reliable, fully modular, any size, any price, available in USA

    Basically, I'm looking for the best of the best. Price doesn't matter unless it gets into absurd territory (I'd prefer to stay under $300).

    Thanks!

    Surely your EVGA is still under warranty.

    Not an expert but they don't go much higher than the T2.

    No, if the 9900k+1080ti is his system.

    Get another drive with Windows on it.

    Then run:
    chkdsk []: /f /scan

    []= Letter of your drive
    And see if that does anything.

    Shutdown/reboot, disconnect the other boot drive and see if it works.
