Welcome to the motherboards.org and a Happy New Year.

Your PSU is weak for your setup, esp if you are overclocking. Running crossfire and overclocking, you need a beefy hiqh quality branded PSU, like Antec, Corsair, OCZ, silverstone which must be certified 80+ Gold. I would look at 850w minimum... I have not heard of the brand Recom.

OEM is Andyson which is using TEAPO capacitors, they are considered not good. Replace the PSU.[/url]
