Freezing during games & net

Hi guys

So by reading some threads off of here and different sites, I'm skeptical of my PSU... My games ( Starcraft 2, Combat Arms, etc.) continually freeze randomly. Reading some forums, I was led to believe my PSU at fault, so I downloaded SensorViewPro to check the voltages. My +12V reads at 10.60. Is this low, and should I be concerned about this?

Please reply in simple terms, I'm a n00b haha.. Thanks!

  1. Software voltage monitoring is worthless.

    What power supply do you have, and what are your system specs?
  2. Zalman ZM600ST 600W PSU
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00GHz
    XFX ATI Radeon HD 5830
    Seagate ST3500320AS 500 GB SATA
    Mushkin 996557 - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400 5-5-5-18 Silverline

    Idk, is that enough? :)
  3. I don't think it's your power supply, unless it's extremely damaged/faulty. You aren't pulling more than 350W.
  4. Hmmm... any other suggestions as to what might be causing this?
  5. Lots of things could cause freezing.

    Incorrect ram setttings, ie: voltage, timings

    Old video drivers

    A hard drive that has never been cleanup or defragged.

    Overheating of the cpu or gpu.
  6. How would I go about testing RAM settings? I know it's not the drivers because I just updated recently, and i defragged my HDD not long ago, so that leaves the RAM or overheating issues..
