sound right? or underpowered?
that's from HW monitor
Minituckin, that 12volt rail looks normal but kind of low. Perhaps other's will chime in soon on that. The best way to measure the amperage is to use a multimeter. If you need a guide on how to do that I can provide one. Software monitoring sometimes isn't 100% accurate that is why it is suggeste that you use a multimeter. Have you thought about purchasing a quality built power supply? Do you have a budget?
In regards to your hard drive, it's always good to just run a surface scan to rule out the component. Process of elimination
