Hello Hickory,

For now I would see if the checks and changes that you have done help any, any replacement PSU needs to meet or surpass the required power requirements/efficiency rating and preferably still be covered by warranty.

You are welcome btw :)

Hi there, I appreciate I've not checked in for a few days and thought it best to update.
So far so good, no repeat of the freezes or power cycles since the last occurrence on Monday. I'll keep an eye on it for a few more days before I consider re-enabling any of the other services. (y)

We can`t leave the thread open indefinitely so can I ask that you update/conclude your thread by Tuesday the 11th, thanks.

Sounds like a plan but if the exact same issue were to return please PM a member of staff and get this thread reopened and not start another thread.

As discussed the issue still hasn't returned, not sure if it's fixed permanently but I'm happy for the thread to be closed as of now.
I am going to be re-enabling things shortly and if it does happen again will come back to see about getting this re-opened.

For anyone reading this who has similar issues; I'm still not sure of the exact cause but in the interests of helping others the problems identified for me were:
- RAM speed set higher than the CPU can handle
- High performance power mode enabled in Windows
- Windows update issue (since rolled back)
- iCue causing system instability
- Me not connecting PSU cables properly, not securing it properly in the case or leaving them in contact with metal to possibly short :oops:

Thanks again Phill for all the help it is much appreciated and I really hope this is the last time I need to post on this subject :)
