Hello guys, so i have my build ready, I have an MSI R9 390, with a i5-6600k CPU in my ASUS Maximus VIII Hero motherboard, a Cryorig H7, a crucial SSD 250GB, another 500GB HDD, 8GB DDR4 RAM, and this PSU Aero Cool KCAS 800W. I'll tell you I was aiming for a Seasonic 620W, because people said it should be enough for this build, but the retailer recommended me a Nox Urano VX 750w, which according to the website was 85% efficient. Turns out I was never able to prove it since it never worked. So I returned it to the retailer and he suggested this one that im using right now, the "Aero Cool KCAS 800W" rated 80Plus Bronze. It seemed to be really worth it for it price (only 64 euros) and it should have more than enough power for my PC, also it was rated 80Plus Bronze so it shouldn´t be bad either. Well I was installing some games on my new computer, and already it gave me problems. I was playing Sanctum 2, and suddendly, in the middle of the match my computer crashes and the ASUS got me a message about a surge that was detected in the power supply. I never heard of this brand of PSU's before so thats probably the problem. I would like to know what you guys think about this, if it is something important and I should worry about this PSU, or since it just happened once it's nothing to worry about really, although this is day one with this PSU... Thanks in advance, cheers!
