After about thirty minutes of running my computer, the wires that lead into the Opus 150W PSU are VERY hot to touch. Could the wires be carrying too much current? Can I even make these bigger at all, the wires running into them are 12 gauge. That is my first issue, which I suspect may be causing my second issue. Once in a while, at random times, it seems like my hard drive will lose power one a second, and then spin back up. As a result of this, the screen turns black and there is no output, even if I hit the reset button. I must reboot the entire system after unplugging and plugging back in the OPUS power wires. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem(s)?
