I had a 450W from be-quiet and it lasted two years. I do not get top of the line units, my average unit cost is between $16 to $35, depending on wattage, and their average lifespan is usually well over 3 years. http://dotbowl.com/power-supply/power-suppy-keeps-dying.html

dont keep the cabinet open. It can also be heat/stress on the psu if the psu is getting to hot due to location or if there's lots if dust build up causing it to fail.

I have asked my friend to tell me what is the current model and wattage of the current PSU. Anything not seated; RAM, vid card, etc can cause weirdness. I don't think it's the power supply that's at fault. 1 Reply MrIVI 1 Reply Thu 11 Nov, 2010 02:10 pm @MrIVI, I'm thinking I might just Mind checking which millennium you are in......

I went with gskill pi to avoid trouble. They're great at reducing fluxuations in voltage, which I'm willing to bet is your problem. During bootup the computer start sequence would fail, right after the drive started to spin up. turns out the corsair broke. (i know.....corsair!!) so i replaced it with an old power supply (around 300+ watt ) and applied for a replacemtn which i got, but haven;t yet
It sometimes turns on and works fine and recently, the last 2 days it does not even turn on. This leads to premature aging of capacitors.

I f you are trying to use cheapo PSU's don't, I blew 2 supposed 680 watt PSU's just playing COD4. The 300W PSU was too weak for your computer. I know it's still under Mfr warranty, maybe still within the Newegg replacement window so I can get it swapped out no problem if needed. http://dotbowl.com/power-supply/possible-power-source-problem.html Considering that the machine appeared to work fine for 3+ weeks before dying with my new PSU how safe is it to assume that an issue like that killed my PSU?
I didn't think much of it. Granted both times they were bought from Ebay (original with the computer and the replacement), so there is a chance both were faulty or near death already. After the second time it happened, I bought an Ellis surge protector plug and put it on a new 5 plug multi-plug.
As I was working full time in a very stressful job, I did not have the means to buy a new PSU and install it myself as I would have normally. PS:( this could be the problem, my friend did overclock to 2.4ghz to 3.6, but the temp was still very low. solved Is my power supply dying? Ultra is a crap brand.
Eventually i just gave up since i had another spare mb (amd opty 165 - which was 10x faster) so I ended up just swapping mb and that fixed the problem share|improve this answer answered Feb 8 '10 at 15:31 BBlake 4,9241730 add a comment| up vote 0 down vote Overheating of the PSU.
