Hi Elloconnors, most likely your powersupply is to blame. When OC-ing your card the power draw increases substantially. In 99% of the cases your PSU is not able to provide the power needed for your card. Note that 500w is very low for any high performance card. Do you know how many amps it has on the 12v rail?

what is amps ??? I do not know how many exactly
so I had to replace / upgrade my PSU ???
ya I already guessed it before, that the problems on my PSU but I’m still not sure.

Can I ask your advice ??? for your recommendation PSU ??? (single GPU)

thanks before sir

Hi Elloconnors, there are some PSU’s we can recommend from Corsair, for example their RM series: http://www.corsair.com/se-fi/psus/rm-series
