To be honest, the only reason I let the PSU temporarily off the hook is because it powers every piece of hardware in the box. However, running Prime95 makes the CPU hotter, so I'd think it would be drawing more current. However again... a sudden but short hardware demand might cause a transient sag that happens to be the thing that takes it down. Or is it breaking down and developing ripple meaning it doesn't need load to cause the error, just a shittier quality of smooth, pure and steady DC.

Translation... beats me, I don't have enough data to verify which is which above.
