Voltage question

  1. Hello ,

    my pc freezes allot during gaming ,
    i think it might be the power suply ,

    can someone tell me if these figures are correct ? :

    Voltage Values:
    CPU Core 1.53 V
    Aux 2.98 V
    +3.3 V 3.23 V
    +5 V 4.89 V
    +12 V 1.98 V
    +5 V Standby 5.09 V
    VBAT Battery 3.04 V

    looks to me if the +12V = 1.98V is not correct ,
    does that mean that the powersuply isnt working well ?
    Thanks in advanced , John .

    my spec :

    Intel Pentium 4EE, 3200 MHz (16 x 200)
    Motherboard Name MSI 875P Neo-FISR (MS-6758 v2.0) (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 4 DDR DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN, IEEE-1394)
    Motherboard Chipset Intel Canterwood i875P
    System Memory 1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM) OCZ dualch
    RADEON 9700 PRO (128 MB)

    Turn off your computer right now! Go buy another PSU before you kill your PC. I thought at 1st it was a typo 1.98 and u menat 11.98, but then u retyped 1.98. :eek: The 12V is used to power the fans.

    "My computer has no 12V!"
    "How does it boot?"
    "Awful"

    Thanks allot ,

    i didn`t knew that the +12V was used for the fans ,

    hmmmm , so that means that during gaming the CPU Temp rises ,

    what shut be a good temperature ?

    ive recorded 70 degree celcius one time , is that too high ?

    thanks again , and for your fast respond.

    70C is the highest you can go without BSOD and general stability problems. At 80-90C the CPU simply shuts down to protect itself.

    Good temps are 30-40C at idle and 40-55C at heavy load like 3D gaming or running Prime95.

    Cheers
