The power supply should be plenty powerful enough. It could from interference fromthe cold cathode that changes colors.

Just curios which Gigabyte Mobo do you have?

Download AIDA32 EE. It will tell you precisely which version of the MOBO you have. THe Pro or the L By the way the L usually just stands for Lan. Meaning that it has on board lan
