12v railing problem..

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
my system started getting very hot recently. i assumed it must be because of the case and changed it. that did not solve it. but recently i checked the voltages and noted that the max voltage the 12v rail gave was only 9.2v. even when i was playing battlefield 2 at medium settings. the temperatures were shooting through the roof. now my dvd drive has also started malfunctioning. system does not recognize it any more.

my rig
quad core 6600
asus p5wdh deluxe
6gb ddr2 ram
2 sata hdd
1 dvd rom
geforce 9600gt 1gb @ stock
nzxt gamma with 6 fans!


the basic HWmonitor results
these temps are at idle.

Your system would not be running at all if your 12V rail was delivering 9.2V. You can't trust software-based monitoring as it is crap. If you want to check your PSU voltages, you're going to have to use a digital multimeter.
I'm not saying your problem does not stem from your PSU, only that you cannot trust what HWMonitor says when it comes to voltages.

I 100% agree get a multimeter its worth the money thought I had same issue PSU reading 10v in software. Checked with a meter netted right voltage and some relief.

Hardly.

I agree software monitoring is inaccurate for various reason. What power supply are you using? Is it a quality power supply?

thats the reason for the question. my power supply is a cheaper variety. it gives 500w on the 12v railing and is still rated as a 700w psu. bought this 2 years ago.

Off the bat, it sounds iffy, but if you state make and model it is easier to identify it as a unit that is either total crap or decent enough.

Yes, please fill out your system specs. Go to User CP at the top of this page, then click on Add System under System Information on the left hand side navigation bar. Be specific about your parts so as to avoid any ambiguities
