In my never ending troubleshooting of an ASUS NCCH-DL w/ 2xnocona 3ghz, 800fsb, 2g ram, asustek ati9600 graphic card and highpoint rocketraid 1820A w/ 8x300gb diamondmax in raid 5, I think I have 2 options left; replace the mobo ( have one spare, but the system is watercooled - hence a lot of hassle and risks involved) or replace the PSU.
The reason I think it might be the psu (antec true550) is that I have 2 recurring problems; A monitor that takes for ever to find signal upon reboot, and that the system almost always fail, corrupting the raid, when left turned off for a while. Hibernation or standby is guaranteed trouble.
At http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic7148.html , Torn mention that a discharge of the PSU when left off can cause errors similar to what I have experienced.
Which leads to: Do anyone else have similar experiences? Is it the Antec? Is it too much load on a 550w (9x hdd's, 1 dvd, 2x3ghz cpu's)?
If you think the psu is too weak or unstable on the voltage, I'd like some recommendations on other psu's...
Thanks in advance!
