I recently put in a new PSU and have been getting BSODs every few days. I have NEVER got one on this computer before so I'm fairly sure it's the PSU. Is there a reason that an incorrectly installed PSU could cause a BSOD? I put the exact same cables in the same place as they were in the old PSU and I put insulating tape on the ends of all spare cables, just to be safe.

I replaced the PSU because it wasn't good enough for my computer - it kept cutting out every so often (it seems like I traded power cuts for BSODs...). My new PSU is an X-Power 700W, not a well known brand but I got it for a bargain. I don't know the brand of the old one but it was 350W.
