I'm fairly certain my 450 PSU just isn't cutting it for games. If you remember my troubleshooting threads with the ntstrokl (or whatever it was) error code, with frequent crashing and freezing during games, that's me.

....

I've been having random crashes on my HTPC for a little over a year now since I built the system, looked through your posts (found recently while looking for info on my problem), and I'm wondering if we're experiencing the same problem. Some of the specs might look familiar:

-G.SKILL RipjawsX Series 8GB PC3-12800 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit (2 x 4GB)
-Samsung 840 Series 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive, 120GB
-Asus HD7850 DirectCU II V2 Radeon HD 7850 2GB PCI-E
-Asus P8B75-M LE Micro ATX LGA1155
-Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core
-Antec 350W ATX12V
-Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (64-bit)

Things I've tried:
-tried a 700W Thermaltake power supply--thought it made things better for awhile, but hard to say given the random nature of things; in the end didn't solve it
-ran memtest86 overnight--no errors on 7 passes
-applied all driver updates (used AMD drivers for GPU, sometimes avoiding HDMI audio driver, sometimes not--we're using the analog audio output from the motherboard)--tried VIA and Asus audio drivers

Like you, I suspected the video card for awhile, but lately I've been thinking the problem is the audio--I've seen times where the audio has switched to 2.0 from 5.1 on its own, so I wonder how good the drivers are.

Anyways, just wanted to share my experience so far--hopefully one of us can get this figured out!
