Hi Michael,

What you describe sounds rather unusual for an Ursa.  It's been my
experience that the Ursa-style power supplies are quite robust and rarely
give trouble even on machines that have aftermarket upgrades installed.

I'd suggest that putting in heavier, non-Cintel power supplies might treat
the symptom, but not necessarily the problem(s).

Best regards,
