Hello All -

Here's a readout from Everest about my P/S :

Field Value
Sensor Properties
Sensor Type ITE IT8705F, National LM90 (ISA 290h, SMBus 4Ch)
Motherboard Name Gigabyte 7VA Series

Temperatures
Motherboard 56 C (133 F)
CPU 53 C (127 F)
Seagate ST380011A 41 C (106 F)

Cooling Fans
CPU 4821 RPM ( stock AMD heatsink and fan).
Chassis 807 RPM (2 - 120 mm fans).

Voltage Values
CPU Core 1.66 V
+3.3 V 3.25 V
+5 V 4.87 V
+12 V 12.03 V
+5 V Standby 5.03 V
DIMM VTT 1.25 V


My question is this...is the power supply putting out the correct voltages. The reason I ask is sometimes the pc will lock up while perusing webpages and the like.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Your psu voltages look fine. I can't comment about the cpu core voltage as you didn't specify which cpu you have. It may also help if you said what PSU you have (eg power rating in watts etc)

Your cpu temps look fine, although the motherboard temp is a tad high. I notice you have 2 large system fans already, can you tell us how they are positioned, ie physical location in the case & direction of air flow?

The problems you are having with the system locking up while online, could be caused by a number of things apart from psu voltages & overheating. Could you provide a bit more info re. the problem, such as the type of internet connection you have, which software you normally have running etc, as well as any other glitches or problems you may be experiencing with your system?

The processor in question is a Athlon XP (thoroughbred) 2200+.

The system fans ( in this case 2 120 mm fans ) are situated as follows :

1. Drawing in air from in front of the case.
2. The other is in the back of the case...i'd assume moving the hot air out.

Here's the specs for the P/S :

Model Name:
HEC-AR-T Series ATX 12V

Remote Sensing:
+3.3 V

Cooling Fans:
8 cm DC Fan

You only have a 300W PSU, which for an athlon 2200+, is really under powered. I would suggest that, regardless of whether the psu is causing your current problems or not, that you upgrade it to a better one - ie, 400W minimum & a decent manufacturer.
