Just an update:

I ran a HWInfo and a guy said my PSU is undervolting heavily and needs to be replaced...now I fear for outside damage to my parts/mobo but I don't think undervolting can cause anything serious from what I've been reading...glad I'm getting a new PSU Thursday/Friday though!

Cool, will be watching for an update when you get everything installed. thumb.gif

Software cannot be trusted to read PSU voltages accurately. Ever. The only way to know for sure what your PSU voltages are is by using a Digital Multimeter (A.K.A. "DMM").

 

Who is this person who told you that your PSU is undervolting heavily just because of your HWiNFO readings? Whoever they are, if they are basing that diagnosis purely by the PSU voltage readings in HWiNFO, then that person doesn't know anything and you should never let them tell you anything ever again regardless of what it is.

Well it is worth upgrading anyways since it was a CX600M which is rated heavily as a bad PSU and Bronze Rated...hopefully the SSD/new PSU fixes all the issues I had.

EDIT: The guy reading the HWInfo was a guy off /r/Tech.

EDIT 2: Also, I had the issue where I couldn't boot until I unplugged and replugged the PSU into the motherboard so I'd assume that was a pretty good indication as well that the PSU was on its way out.

I'm not so convinced. The CX600M may not be a stellar PSU, but it's certainly not a junker or generic or bottom-of-the-barrel. We can't judge the quality of any PSU by its 80+ Certification. Just because a PSU is 80+ Bronze Certified, it doesn't mean it's low in quality.

 

Oh. Reddit. I'm not surprised. Try to keep your questions directed at OCN. You're FAR less likely to be mislead or given incorrect information on here than you are anywhere else.

 

Anyway, I guess we'll just wait and see what the new SSD and PSU does. I would check your wall outlet though because if a fairly decent PSU is dying this fast, then there's a chance the power coming out of the outlet isn't all that good or stable.

Well I've had the PSU for at least 4 years* The PSU in my current PC isn't new by any means.

You haven't really been pushing it very hard though. Of course, I admit that I'm glad to see you upgrading to a PSU that's much better.

True true, I just know the PSU seemed to always blow extremely hot air out the back. I tested the fan and it worked but something seemed off as of late.

Can undervolting do that? I am still worried about the impact the PSU could have had on the rest of my system... ;\
