Performance fluctuations due to PSU? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
You're right, mine never goes above 12.2v and never below 12.1v I don't know where I got 12.4v from. So I would look into a new PSU to solve your fluctuating problems.

yea sorry .. crappy pic quality ..

but my +12V is around 11.6

guess maybe that is my prob ... crappy PSU

o well .. I am going to get the Sumbean NUUO soon anyway .. I hear that is a good PSU.

and @Chozart: I have that dumb coon n' quiet thing off. Prolly my PSU causing the probs. its what I suspected...

the PSU is the only original thing left in my computer ... I have upgraded everything else at least once.

I just wasnt sure if a PSU could cause that significant of a performance drop.

That is a nice PSU, you'll be happy with it.

Contrary to popular belivef, a power supply is the most important componet in your system.

Yep, new PSU it is. The NUUO is a good choice (although I personally don't like it's low efficiency ratings..). It's a solid PSU, and popular here on the board.

A insufficient PSU can result in many problems... if the problem is weird, suspect the PSU

EDIT: Chipp - I fully agree.. PSU is the heart of a PC. In the process of writing several FAQ's on PSU's myself

Same with mine, the stupid quality control/void warranty sticker is right on the front corner for all to see.

WOW .... this PSU is complete crap ... I never realized ...

I just checked the voltage graph after playing Oblivion for about an hour.

look at how low the +12V gets.

Yep.. That's crappy indeed... I'm surprised your rig didn't shut down.

The NUUO will treat you well

Have fun
