After watching speedfan a while I noticed a few irregulaties in the voltages. I'll just list the stats:
VCore - running from 1.62 to 1.66
+12V - From 12.6 to 12.8
3.3V - running from 3.07 to 3.12
VCC - from 5 to 5.1
5VSB - running from 4.95 to 5
All of my fans are working. All the temperatures are quite fine. CPU gets up to 45C under full load, and hard disks rarely break 30C.
Memtest86 shows my memory as working fine. Mainboard, video, and sound card drivers are all updated. Windows is updated. DirectX is 9.0C.
Major Payne - thanks alot for you're reply. I am still curious, however, regarding the effects of a UPS that doesn't support as much wattage as a computer pulls. I'm fresh out of extra power supplies to test things with, and would rather know if this could be damaging to them before buying another and blowing it too.
Two ideas I just had:
1- perhaps the Video card is getting hot. I don't know how to check this things temperature. Any tips?
2 - One of my RAM slots is burned out. A stick of RAM got put in upside down, which resulted in some charring and horrible smells. The slot is broken, and not in use now. Maybe the damage to this slot affected other parts of the board?
Thanks in advance.
