Mostly right. The efficiency and power factor ratings of
higher-wattage PSs is kinda variable, but differences are (usually)
minor, especially for quality units. A 400W PS would not be overkill;
an 800-watt one would. I still think the PS is the problem, but check
the caps, as well.

It was only a suggestion based on experience. Linux can't read ALL
thermal-monitor ICs, unfortunately -- but the BIOS can.
