I am attempting to upgrade my PSU to the new 1000W OCZ ProXStream power supply. With the old setup I would get the NVIDIA sentinel pop-up about not enough power to the GPU x340234872349880923409 so I figured now would be a good time to upgrade.

The rig is as follows:
ABIT AN8 SLI
GF 8800 GTX
2gb RAM
AMD FX-57
WD Raptor 75GB
Creative Audigy 2

With the old PSU the CPU temp is ~ 50C and with the new one it jumps to ~80C, which triggers the warning siren. I have been able to get it to boot with the new PSU a few times, but it won't always.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Recheck ALL you power connections and make sure the CPU fan is indeed running

Went over all the connections; the BIOS says the fan is running at ~2800 RPMs, and it does seem to be spinning inside the case. I even unscrewed the fan and cleaned the grill of the heatsink and the fan, still no go. Which is completely weird because its fine with the other PSU.

Hi,
This is obvious, but is the copper touching the CPU, or is there a gap in-between?

I'll check when I get the opportunity to ~ Is there a good way to check this short of taking everything out of the case?

I would guess that its touching since it doesn't get hot with the other PSU.
