Is My PSU Dieing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a 750w Ultra X4. When I look at the voltages in the BIOS they read at 11.37v on the +12v line but in Windows when I use Everest the voltages say 9.91v. My computer has been giving me glitches when I play music or games like it is a skipping CD and i hear the digital "grunt" every time it does so.

Here are my pc specs
CPU
i3 530
Mobo
Intel DH55TC
RAM
G.SKILL 2x2GB 1333MHz
Video Card
EVGA GTX 460 SE
PSU
Ultra X4 750w
Hard Drive
1TB WD Black
CASE
NZXT Vulcan

The only way you're really going to know for sure is testing via multimeter; with the said, a quality PSU is cheap insurance to keep the rest of your computer in working order...

What's your budget?

Never trust Software voltage readings for PSU( +12v, -12v, +5v...etc)

I can check it via multimeter just not sure where to check. But the PSU has a lifetime warranty im just trying to see if it is causing my issue.
