Thanks go_for for the input.

Caps going bad was actually the first thing I suspected with the intermittent type of issue. It could still be that, but I can't pick out any bulging or blown caps.


The PSU is also entirely possible. Corsair made a string of CX430s (and maybe still is) that whine. I don't know that it affects anything, but I have my eye on the PSU as well. I have a tester which tests it fine, but I've had many times when the tester says okay and it's not.

I don't have a different PSU to try without tearing apart another computer, but I totally agree with you.

One thing I did notice....which may trace back to either of those issues also...is that I can't OC the computer worth a dang anymore. I was a little bored one day and was thinking about speeding it up just a bit. I used to be able to get over 600MHz out of this same setup, but now it seems like over 200MHz isn't stable. Meh.

Will keep you posted

Well, can't get it to boot. I'll investigate when I have a bit more time, but this may be it. Luckily everything I need is backed up.
