Can someone please tell me what to do about being out of threshold on +3.3V on my PS.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am running into some problems with my Antec Truepower II ATX12V power supply. It is giving me spastic numbers under the +3.3V section in my Asus PC Probe program. Should this be something to worry about or am I safe for the moment? My ranges for being out of threshold are anything above +3.3V but not above 4.04V and also under threshold which is usually the case can range down to 1.65V.

that is not safe! you need to get a multimeter and test the psu rails yourself. but it is safe to say that you should buy a new psu... and looking at your rig I'd say your psu is taxed pretty well. You should get a better psu regardless!


take a look at a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 or 750
Seasonic S12-600
FSP Epsilon 600 or 700
OCZ Gamextrem 600 or 700

Definately need a PSU upgrade, you may want to take out the crossfire setup until you can pick up more powerful PSU. The suggested PSU's above are great, expecially if you can afford the better PCP&C's, if you plan on upgrading in the future(next gen vid cards are going to require a lot of power) you may want to check into the 1000w PCP&C.

Here's a link to the 750w one.

Some specials right from PCP&C
