KINGWIN Lazer Gold Series LZG-700 700W ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64

My problems are that I randomly get the blue screen of death, a common factor might have been that i was installing large programs when it happened but there was other stuff going on also. Another thing that keeps happening is weird hiccups where the computer mini-freezes and acts like it's thinking really hard about something, but the cpu is never running at more than 8% and the memory at a very minimal amount too.

Anything you can tell me would be great, I appreciate it.

why are you running 3 sticks of ram,i think it's a dual channel m/b which means running ram in pairs

try it with just 2 sticks in

check the voltage range of the ram,asus boards usually default to low to cater for crap ram

kingwin are low quality units,i would be running a quality 750w min

quality psu's come with a 5 to 7yr warranty

Thanks for the advice! Rookie mistake, I'll try it with just 2 sticks in. I double checked the RAM voltage and it's running at the proper amount. I did use newegg.com's voltage calculator and it recommends a 500 watt supply for my current setup. I went a bit high so i have room to add.

kingwing are renowned for causing issues such as you are getting. When I used to test power supplies in my job 90% of faulty power supplies came from kngwing who also make powerman and winpower.

If you are building a good rig like your it is foolish to put in a crap power supply since the psu is the most important component in your system and cheap = crap.

good makes such as seasonic,xfx or corsair (not gs or cx) are not cheap and as dai has rightly pointed out you should be running atleast 750w

I hope your kingwing hasn't damaged anything as this is what they do.
