When I built my new system back in Febuary it kept freezing, even in BIOS. I thought it was the motherboard, but you know how it is, when I took it back to the shop it worked just fine. When I got home if froze up again, by this stage I changed just about everything with parts from my old computer trying to track down the fault.

Then it clicked, I got out the multimeter and found I was getting line power of 225v rather than a nominal 240v (the shop was getting 237v), time to invest in a top end PSU.

When you have problems like that, you don't forget easily !!

I'd suggest you take the motherboard into the shop you bought the PSU from. If they're halfway decent they'll quickly check it for you, it's only a five minute job.

Hi,

On this same topic again - what's the chances of the PSU having fried the motherboard too ??

Cheers

when my psu went, it fried my motherboard, and most everything else, to a molten plastic slag heap.
