Now I really don' t know if the PSU is over-heating, but what I do know is that I've also used the original stock PSU of the A1200 initially. When all these crashes etc started I decided to use an A500 PSU requiring more power for the use of the accelerator .... but same things happened.
Another practice is to remove the top half of the metal sheeting.if you have a jig saw cutter,open up the A1200,and remove the parts.on the bottom half of the case,cut away the small plastic step with the cutter.the card will have less of a bulge.
