Yesterday one guy tried to overclock my gpu via tiemviewer and whenever he turn up voltage gpu starts to be very unstable. Later we found out that gpu is not getting enough power. After we downloaded SIV we saw some ridiculous voltages. Could it be PSU or wall outlet?

I also used extensions which might be faulty too but I ahve tried psu without extensions and it gives me the same voltage. I got MSI Z77 mpower mobo which got voltage check points that I can check with multimeter. Can I trust them?

Do you have any proof? It works well for me and my customers and is usually close if not accurate. The thing is his card is not getting the power it is requesting and that can be a few problems but ultimately it also means the psu is not sending enough power. I would readily accept that if you had gave him possibilities of where this issue stems from but all you said is that software is faulty and cannot be trusted. That really helps us figure out what is wrong.

ADDON: He has no ripple and hwmonitor reports the similar off results with no ripple

Easiest way to tell if your PSU isn't supplying the correct voltage is to use a voltmeter.

Measure with everything connected MB, HDD, GPU, etc. Then measure again with everything disconnected using paper clip method.

I got v check points on my z77 mpower but I don't have psu now

he doesn't have a meter and i wish he could have gotten somebodies else rig to use to test everything card included. http://www.overclock.net/g/i/1791954/my-baby/sort/display_order/ thats the link to my old voltage readouts with siv and i have another readout i will do with this psu with siv to show results.

You remember that store I bought psu from? They test psu before they change it, and if they find out that it's fully working, I must to pay for check and shipping back.

ouch but what else could it be? this is a different mobo and psu and the problem still stands that the card isn't getting enough power at stock before modded. it only hit 83% tdp and the thing throttled the whole time.

I use mobo from acer predator g3620 with don't let me change any oc or voltage setting so everything is stock for sure. And as I said, there is no gpu in rig now and it still shows the same voltages

I think i figured it out. It has to be the OS. Thats the only thing you still have thats the same.
