Well, I've been having alot of serious issues with my sig rig when it comes to running games mostly. Let me first state that you can all assume stock clocks on everything. Also, I've ran Orthos for 12+ hours and still reporting stable. My issue is this : terrible frame rate drops (PSU?) and odd textures here and there, although the texture errors are always the exact same, even with fresh driver / windows xp installs. Now this has all been happening since I was stupid enough to not use a surge protector, and a power outage happened and severely messed everything up. Well after a complete rebuild, I got everything working again, although now I am experiencing the frame drops and texture errors I mentioned. I have tried a few different driver configurations, still the same problems. Now in my motherboard's BIOS, volotages are all great, except 12V is a little low at 11.87V, but my PSU has dual 12V rails so this would only be indicating the 12V lead to my motherboard, no? Now to scare me a little more, speedfan and Everest are showing a dangerous 11.10-11.40V. So do you all think my PSU is fried? Or maybe something a little more serious? Oh, also, ATI Tray runs overnight fine and when I scan for artifacts after the 12+ hour "heat-up" phase, she is clean. Also, my 3DMark06 score is still 5100-5200, which is what I scored before the power outage. And the issues are mostly exclusive to OpenGL applications. My other thought other than PSU is that maybe my motherboard has a compatibility issue with my x1950 GT as it is a strange setup with PCIe 4x and AGP 8x on the same board, but then the issue should have occured before the power outage. Sorry for the long post, but the information was needed to assess my issue. I can't really use another PSU to test as I've only got a 480W Delta and a 380W Antec, neither of which could run this setup in the first place, that's why I bought the 600W. Any other way to test the PSU?
