Could this be causing system freezes?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, I recently ugraded to an 6950 because my system was having freezes, however it's no different with the new card so I'm now pretty sure it's something else. The freezes only happen in high graphically demanding games. I opened up CPUID and I found this



Is this unusual? I don't really know much about voltage. Any help would be appreciated

Whoops sorry, should be up now.

Never trust software voltage readings, they are mostly inaccurate.

Did you overclock your system? Normally system freezes are due to memory instability issues, but since you are getting this problem in graphically intensive games, it might be a GPU problem.

I haven't ever overclocked the system other than a little now and then, the freezes are happening now on stock speeds. I'm not quite sure it is the GPU as I was having the same problem with my old 4870.

Just went into bios and it showed +12 as 12.1v so seems like the software reading was indeed inaccurate. No idea what it is now

This pretty much, however, HWMoniter works fine for me and it displays my voltages correctly, but then again no computer is the same. If that is you actual voltage then yes, that very well could be the issue.

EDIT: Nevermind.

Thanks for the help guys, I'm thinking now it's my CPU or PSU. Moreso the PSU still because it is a real cheapie and I think CPU faults usually cause a crash not a freeze? Hm.

Use a multimeter on the PSU while gaming to see if there is any decline in voltage!

It is most likely the PSU, it probably isn't feeding your GPU enough power during games.
