it was a bit of a struggle to fit it all in a sentry case. but they felt like the standard silverstone affair
Have you used both PCIe power cables and not just one cable with two connectors ? It should be plenty that way, I've powered a similar power-hungry R9 290X card with a Silverstone 450W SFX PSU for years, in the past. The PSU is also not being fed warm air I hope.i might be having some issues with the 650 regarding powering a single vega 64, [H]ard forum is suggesting the reason crashes occur when it isn't on power saver is because of the psu.
i am using the two connectors and the psu is drawing air straight from outside. i'm hoping it was vegas fault though as i have had no issues since turning it to power saver.Have you used both PCIe power cables and not just one cable with two connectors ?

Very strange. My other guess would be it could be tripping some kind of Over Current Protection. Do you have an Asus motherboard wih AntiSurge feature ? If so, deactiviating it in the BIOS could solve it.
this is something i really needed to hear, i was worried i was alone. i actually found i had the opposite issue, i had to overclock on my less intensive games.Just wanted to respond to this thread and say that after a year I'm experiencing crashes again with my Silverstone SX650 and Vega 56. Although it was fine all year, I recently got Destiny2 and it crashes very quickly unless the Vega is in power saver mode.
I followed-up with Silverstone technical support and they confirmed that the SX650 has an overly sensitive overcurrent protection (OCP) causing it to trip and reset the system. They have since changed this and are allowing purchasers to RMA units.
I have to pay to ship it to them and they don't ship me a new PSU until they receive mine, so unsure how long my PC will be down for.
