I have noticed the HD light on the front of the case is acting more "normal" now then it was before. Pulsing rather then being fully light constantly.

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Thanks to Broni for the instructions and program

I keep going back to post 2 where the speedfan is and the voltages being so weird on the 12 volt rail.
It just keeps telling me the issue is a faulty PSU.

would make the most sense considering it fried out a surge protector early after getting it, and then i had to replace the cmos battery etc.

Ahhh now it makes sense. Do you have a extra PSU around or can you get hold of one to test with?
You need one at least the same wattage what you have or better.

I should, but I think it may only be a 300-350 I'm not 100% positive it has enough juice but can look around.

I remember that when the surge protector went out, the outlet trip went off anytime I would run my computer.
