Just want to ask if this reading from HWMonitor is normal (especially the 12v rail reading).
Just recently, while playing COD:Black Ops, the game crashed and froze the PC. Ever since, I can't play any games properly due to artifacts, broken polygons, etc. It was really a mess. All this time I was convinced that my good ol' GTS 250 is the culprit (and also a nice excuse to buy a new one).
But as I check my voltages via HWMonitor, I saw the 12v rail topping at 4v only which I find weird. I don't remember my previous readings but I think the value should be ~12v. I've tried running Furmark, OCCT, whatever to see if it would reach 12v but apparently the voltage don't get pass 4v. Do you think my PSU (Corsair HX620) is broken?
Though I really doubtful about the PSU being the culprit since I should have also noticed the negative effects on other parts that uses the 12v rail (case fans, HDD, etc) aside from the GPU. Plus the PSU is a Seasonic OEM which I doubt will bust out like this so easily.
I've checked my case fans and they're all running fine at full speed and the leds are blinding as usual. I've also tried using other software (Asrock OC Tuner) and it gave me 12.144v reading for the 12v rail. All left was the voltmeter test to confirm once and for all if my hunch is indeed correct.
