is there a clear cut way to tell if my diablotek 750w and my Intel DH55HC are compatible.
I got another one of these psu and motherboards sent to me after a failure by one of them i just want to make sure they are
compatible before i put them to work again.

psu
+5, +3.3v, 12v1 12v2, -12v, +5v5b
28a, 25a, 27a, 27a, .5a, 2.0a

edit: by the way Diablotek are terrible business men and I will not be buying from them again.
- low communication
- didn't follow their own return instructions
- no tracking numbers
- did not get everything I sent back

Yes, they should be compatable, but that being said I wouldn't even let a Diablotek PSU in the same room with anything I own. Diabloteks are notorious for failing, and taking other components with them. Put the Diablotek on Ebay and get a proper power supply.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

I would agree with Dpunisher, Id get rid of it and get a good Coolermaster, antec or Corsair PSU.

That makes sense since both the mb and psi failed they both sent replacements I'll give it another go first

finally fixed my comp. two days ago but it is still having the same problem as when it was working. it randomly shuts off with no warning or bsod.

its not the power supply
its not the motherboard
its not the processor
its not the drivers
not the video card
not over heating

these things i know for sure because if i didn't test it, the items have just recently been replaced... like 2 days ago

i honestly have no i other ideas as to what it could be. i uninstalled a bunch of programs and tried other suggestions nothing seems to work!! no matter what
when i least expect it POOFF!! goes off like someone tripped over the cord..
correction it make a big EERRRRRRRRRRRR noise for about a second then turns off. dont no how else to spell a noise but there it is.

anyone have any idea?! this is sort of driving me mad. i have tried to have a lot of patience with this computer cause i built it myself but i have my limits.
