HELP Is it my PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I have the following system:

MSI Z390 - DDR4 Motherboard

Intel i5 3.70Ghz processor

NVidia Quadro P4000 8gb Grapphics card

Corsair RM1000X power supply

I run autocad, photoshop and sketchup mainly, but also sometimes use other cad platforms. I use to have an EVG 80+ Bronze 600w ATX power supply but I started to max out the power usage  and the software started glitching and hanging up.  So I went ahead and bought the corsair power supply in the hope that it would resolve the very high power usage trends I was experiencing.  However it has not resolved the issues.  I  can't believe a 1000w power supply is not man enough to run autocad 2020 so what could be the issue?  Can someone help, even running malware bytes puts the power usage into the red is there an issue here I don't see?

A Coffee Lake i5 and a P4000 won't pull even close to 600W, so that power supply wasn't getting maxed out, and an RM1000x even less so.

Make sure you're not running out of memory, check for stability on the CPU, GPU and memory, check thermals and update your drivers and the BIOS.

Where is this "magic" power usage?

This system maybe consumes 350w on full blast. So there is for sure something else going on. How are you measuring the power useage? How much ram do you have?
