I have a 500 watt apeva PSU, my 3volt and 5 volt are just fine but my 12 volt rail says its at 2.18 volts with everest and pc wizard, but when i restart and go into my bios it says i'm at 12.30 volts. My specs are 4gb ddr 2 800, evga 250 gts, gigabyte p31-es36 and intel pentium e6300 wolfdale. my last graphics card capacitors kept popping, one popped i had it replaced then 2 more a month later, the system itself is somewhat stable in games my graphics are very very low compared to what i should be able to do, starcraft 2 can barly run medium/high. my power supply is an Apeva Java win 500xspx my original graphics card was an xfx 8600 gt and i had it for 3 years so i figured it was just old age at first until i was looking at these programs. if anybody could help it would be very appreciated.
yea i have heating issues under load my graphics card hits 70C with the fan on auto, i'm not sure if the card just runs hot or if it is the PSU, I am hoping apeva will exchange this one for another.if not is Diablotek any good? their 600 watt psu has some good reviews on it
well if my PSU checks out fine would it be my motherboard by chance? I've never seen an issue quit like this before i'm not really overheating terribly,my CPU under load hits 109F MAX and my graphics card is at 53c right now under load. i have never had a random restart or anything, one thing that i have notice lately in WOW whenever i have any other sound going on like music or a video, i gets staticy i have reinstalled wow once since the issue and it still does it.
