    Potential Power Issue?

    Hi All

    I've been having a few (what i think are) power issues lately with my PC. With a modest i7 920 OC (3.8) applied the computer every now and again doesn't power on correctly until i press the reset button. The problem doesnt occur when the OC is disabled but i'm struggling to determine the cause of the issue.

    Any thoughts/suggestions before I splash out £60 on an Antec TP New 650w before today only shuts tomorrow?
