Not bad, as far as the article goes. It's dated 2005, and very obsolete. The orange wires should be 3.3 volts.
Unfortunately, the only real way to test a PSU is by substituting a known good PSU of adequate capacity.
I would never buy an Antec Basiq. I think they cut too many corners in that line to meet the price point. I have three computers with other Antec models (one 8 years old) in them. To be fair, I have to admit that I'm never on that tight of a budget.
Exactly when do you have the random crashes? What are the rest of your system specs?
jtt is right. Random crashes can be caused by memory or thermal problems. Also buggy drivers - especially video drivers.
Well, I was hoping it was the PSU, so I unpluged all unnecessary things, and the system still crashes.. Earlier today the mobo beepcoded no video card,so I changed to my second PCIE power and it finally started... So I wanted to test the PSU further, and since its the only PSU I have that has a PCIE so I would have to buy another one just to test... So I was looking for ways around that like volt meters and ram tests and the like...
One of the oddest things about this random freezing is, I can play say Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 for 2 hours straight, and the system's fine. Good as new, I will then quit and say go to google, surf then walk away for 5 min, come back and the system will be frozen... It freezes at completely random times. So I am getting EXTREMELY frustrated at my 1yr system
