In Topic: Windows 10 upgrade can do one......

The plot thickens I managed to get it installed with 1 gpu disconnected it was a little unstable once up but better. I then tested the other gpu with same set of power cables same result a little unstable but better than before. I followed by using the other set of vga power cables from my psu and locked up on boot for both cards.

So I'm thinking my psu is dead?
Odd that Windows 7 seemed fine

So another round of install attempts I've tried clean install several times and it randomly freezes on install same as upgrade attempts. I managed to make a full install once but Windows 10 just kept locking up after seconds.
I thought maybe the ssd was crapping out but tested in another system which installed and ran Windows 10 fine. I rechecked all my ram all fine. I installed Windows 10 on my drive from another system then put it back in mine boots and random lock ups the same as above.
I'm completely stumped I can't grasp the problem

I dont mind buying the 970 and chucking a small amount of cash on 9590 if its worth it but if i go for a complete new I5 or maybe I7 build thats probably me going to be done for several years as far as serious money spent.
