So it is definitely looking like a PSU problem afaik, although the Corsair tx750w should have been able to support my system. Can't understand how it only lasted 4.5 years. I notice how it just lasted past its warranty? Cheeky bastards!

I am going to order a new psu probably a 650w because that (excellent) power calculator moefugger linked to says my system is about 456w.

You buy a piece of hardware and spend the extra to overshoot your system to be safe and it fucks up anyway! pfft...
Check out the voltage drop by load, and the PSU isn't really a Corsair, they opened up the PSU and found different brand converter inside.

If you think you aren't anywhere near the peak load, you might have put all connections on one single feeding line. Most good PSU have 2 - 3 feeding lines to help you balance out the load on the system. Not sure if your PSU got that though. You should check the manual usually they have a nice little diagram showing you that.
