    This rig was put together around 3 years ago. Not that old at all.

    Indeed, but I would still like you to check your PSU and cabling (if they're properly connected)

    Axe,
    Im actually already going to be receiving a replacement PSU to make sure that isn't the culprit. Thing is, its an upgraded PSU and I dont know how to easily transfer over the connections from the old to the new. Can you give me some guidance?

    Could you explain in more detail what exactly it is that you have trouble with please.

    Is the previous PSU upgrade been done by yourself?

    The original system was put together by a 3rd party. I've never hooked a PSU and the fact that the ports on the back of the two look different is concerning. I just want to make sure I hook them up properly.

    Alright, it's quite easy actually, more than with the hx850 if the pics I see are correct

    The connections:

    All you would need to do is remove all cabling going to the PSU, install the PSU and reconnect all cabling back.
    This is quite easy, because if you count the pins on each connection you can easily find out what cables provides power for what part.

    Excellent information Axe, I will be receiving the PSU tomorrow and will update you of the results once I have some time testing with it.
