12V = 11.77
5V = 4.89

CPu = 1.4v
Ram = ddr2667 underclocked to 400 @ 1.8v(stock volts)
257x10 timing

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

Good luck

Minituckin, it's always good to spend a little extra on a quality built power supply. In my opinion that's the most valuable part in a computer. It powers and regulates everything in your computer. Don't go cheap or you'll end paying for it . Amperage wise, the 12volt rail is 25amps so that should be fine but quality wise I am unsure.

Good luck

just thought i'd update a little to this thread. got my zalman cooler in and used Artic Silver 5 paste... got it up to 2.60ghz around 53-55C under orthos complete load. Idle around 30-33. What temps do you guys think i should stop going up? I'm running at 1.45 volts at the moment.

Minituckin, I'd say when you start to hit 60C on Orthos full load is when you should back it down. But understand this you'll never hit those full load temps when running a game or browsing the internet. When playing games such as COD4 and TF2, my full load temps never exceed 44C and this is with a TR XP-90C and a 78F room ambient. As soon as I fire up Orthos blend my cpu temps will sky rocket to 50-58C.
How is the air flow in your case? Are you able to drop the voltage to 1.4volts and still have it stable?

Good luck

well i'm up to 2.7ghz now... running another test. As far as the case its just temp until my new case comes in. I have a 80mm in the front, 120 on the bottom side, and another 80mm at the back. This new case can support a 140mm in the front and back so i'll be putting 120s in those spots and possibly another in the 5.25 trays.

also my temps are maxing out around 57-59.

Minituckin, those temps look about right for Orthos blend.

What kind of new case did you pick up? 140mm in the front and back sounds awesome

whoops meant 120mm fans... either way better than these 80mms.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146025

but i may try and modify it to fit 140s

here my fans... maybe a little loud but not really worried about that
