Weird temperature readings, is it my power supply?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.

I have these weird temps going on now and I'm worried. As you can see in my sig. My processor is overclocked to 3.2Ghz when I first got it, I started to make sure it was stable by running long stress test and everything else. My idle temps use to be around 45-45-40-40 and all of a sudden today I didn't realize it dropped down to 30-30-34-34 and its not right since it happened only right now few days ago it wasn't like this. So all what I had in my mind is to try checking CPU-Z maybe its downclocking but it didn't. I used both Aida64 and CPU-Z. And of course in the BIOS settings I didn't have any power saving feature on. I'm starting to think its my unreliable power supply giving bad current. The 12+(1) has 14A and the 12+(2) gives 15A which I know is very low since I noticed newer power supplies has a rating of 40+ Amps for the 12+. I'm really worried and I hope it has nothing to do when any of my components dying. Besides I'm planing on buying a XFX 750w by the end of this month and by the end of next month I'll get a 6950 card that's the reason I need some headroom for my card and overclock. I'll be even swapping processor with my girl since she has the Q9950 and she doesn't use her computer for anything heavy.

Thank you.

it should just be your ambient temps. a PSU issue wouldnt cause temperature drops.

I really don't think its the ambient temperature. It must change by time and my room is not even air conditioned. I don't think ambient temp will be that good. I live in the Philippines and the weather is not cold. I'm not saying 30 is cold but dropping 10 degrees is too much. My Gflops use to be 37 and now I'm getting 26 instead. I just ran a quick IntelBurnTest to see if anything happens.

No I've been using this for 3years or more but I'll be swapping mine with my girl's Q9950.
