What do you mean by split it ? Was it a clamped on and you just unclamped it ?

Which inner diameter do you use for the beads? Does the cables needs to be thightened in the bead (perfectly adjusted to the nearest millimetre) ? Thanks.

i split it in the classic way with screw and hammer, it fixed the crashes when i turn on/off the light but i still getting some random crashes, all left to try is to change the room which i will tell if it was a success or not

ok changed the room and put the psu plug in very isolated place and it still crashes, its so random sometimes it can last hours without a single crash while heavy gaming and sometimes and crashes out of nowhere for no reason while idol

What are the differences between these adapters? (Surge protection? switch? other?)

I'm experimenting the same sudden crashes problem. I will try with the ferrite beads that arrive today at home. I hope this will solve the random restarts I suffer.

I have tried everything else, I'm using an UPS and I have tried with two different PSU, both of good quality.

ferrite beads works then? I'm thinking about using it, I'm using a laptop adapter does these have as much noise as an atx psu can?
