post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Holy mother cow, Speedfan just detected that the max voltage on my 12v rail reading reached as high as 13.06volts today!! However the average was 12.73v. I think its going to blow any day now.

Your computer would crash if it is that low... I would invest in a 10 dollar multimeter and measure your 12v rail with that. Software isnt very acurtate these days for measuring voltages.

It doesn't matter. This piece of junk will be in the trash as soon as the XG Vigro500 arrives from Loner13. I just hope that in the mean time, it won't suddenly fail and take my CPU and Mobo with it

Like wowza said I think your temp monitoring software isn't accurate.

it's volt and fan speed monitoring software lol ... Anyways, I know it's a pain but get a multimeter and check it out and don't leave your computer running when your not using it just in case.

Lightsource, I already have Everest Home Edition and it reports the same volts as Speedfan. By the way in case you didn't know, lavalys.com stopped distributing the free version of Everest, so you can either download it from oc.net or elsewhere.
I left my PC on overnight to convert a rmvb video file and at 4:57a.m., the computer froze (because when I woke up at 6:30, the screen was fine except nothing was moving, not even the clock, the mouse didn't respond either). So I held the power button and forced it to restart. Right after the Welcome screen for Windows, the PC freezes again. I began to think that my PSU is failing and can't even support the extra overclock on the CPU. So I put my CPU to stock speeds and its finally running. Godam PSU!!

If anything I bet the 12V rail is alot lower than what it says.

I had a psu blowup on another machine while I was using it. It's not a fun event....it scared the living hell out of me. Smoke, firecracker sounds...the works. I literally fell backwards out of my chair because I thought it was going to explode before I pulled the power cord. Miraculously, it didn't take any parts along with it, but I assumed they entire machine was toast after witnessing it. To this day, I can't understand how the parts survived because I saw a TON of sparks/smoke and it smelled like it was on fire.
