New SeaSonic LOL

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I brought my pc in to the stoer and they were just like it doesn't work. (Duh I could have told them that ) so I got my dad to hitch up 22$ more and I got a New Seasonic S12 500 watt power supply and it looks great good rails. So I oc'ed a little higher than usual (12.5x184 now at 12.5x192= 2.4ghz) and it seems stable and so I opened up speedfan and all my rails are undervolting, but the the thing is, they're dead steady undervolted lol they fluctuate like .02 under stress, and at first I was really worried, but they seem stable so I'm just a little ponderous, I might check it later at stock, can anybody shed some light to me? by the way my v-core is at 1.8v what is the limit for these bartons?

Seasonic makes some excellent power supplies so you don't have to worry about a little undervolting. Also, software readings are notorious for being off so if you're worried about your voltages, measure them with a volt/multimeter.

yeah I will look into that, I'm not too worried just a little sad I couldn't do 2.5ghz, what do you think is the max for a barton? If I had some thermal paste I'd do POGE's multi mod, but I don't have any so once the heatsink was off it wouldn't be going back on
