So, I've been experiencing some BSOD's during gaming. Primarily Doom, but I haven't played another AAA title other than that recently since it started happening. I've made no recent changes to my hardware, and it doesn't seem to happen on less intensive titles such as Killing Floor 2. Browsing, and editing it flies through. I was live streaming while gaming so that may have put more stress than normal on the system. I did a Windows Memory Diagnostic for what that is worth and it did not come up with any errors. My GPU is not overclocked other than what the card came with. MY CPU however, is to 4.7 GHZ. I used ASUS optimization software to do it and it's been handling it well.
So tell me is a 600 Watt power supply adequate for: i5 4690k overclocked to 4.7/8 on 2/2 cores. GTX 980ti Amp Omega ASUS Z97-A MOBO with I/O jammed full of USB peripherals.
I've done the obvious and put my system as accurately as I could into multiple calculators. It's varied from 100W-50W under my PSU's rated output. Seeing as how it's just a normal ol' CX600 non-modular PSU, I'd say it's not quite doing it's job.
In my defense before anyone blasts me, I got this for a good deal from my brother out of his system when first getting into PC building when I had much different parts in my case. I wasn't planning for the 980ti. :P
