the reason im asking is that i have a 470W Enermax and for some reason i was getting reboots with bluescreens or even sometimes just a 1-3 sec pause and reboot, i checked the voltage in speedfan and it reckons it drops to 11.9X ish sometimes, so i have my brothers 600W which im using now and so far its fine, only difference between his and mine is 1A more on the 12V lines, however mine has more Amps on the 5v line. Checkin with Speedfan it states it doesnt drop below 12.03v now, could it have been that? i was sure even a decent 400W PSU would have been enough :o
or is the Enermax Noisetaker 470W not upto the job these days?

That 470w sounds like more than enough. I think your right, you are going to have to eliminate each piece of hardware one by one.
