    Default Problem here?

    Can you guys tell me if my PSU is struggling here?

    Taken after 2 hours of straight BC2


    PSU in question is a rosewill green series 630W.
    It's powering a Phenom II 955, GTX 470, HDD+SSD,8GB DDR3

    Nothing is overclocked.

    Yeah, there's a HUGE problem with that...

    Software. Readings. Are. Completely. USELESS and UNRELIABLE.

    Disregard those "results". If you're not experiencing problems, don't go looking for them, especially not with Everest, Sandra, OCCT, or whatever.

    BTW, Rosewill Green RG630 is a solid ATNG-built unit, as can be seen here. It is more than adequate for your machine, so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Lol I know they're unreliable, but the thing is I was experiencing quite a severe problem...Sound loop crashing in certain games (BC2 mostly). Windows would then have strange artifacts, sounds would stop working, programs would crash...And then all fine on a reboot. Strangest thing i've ever seen. I was just trying to rule out the PSU.

    I THINK I have it fixed, but that's what I thought before lol

    The temperatures seem to be fine, so... Driver issue? I mean, that machine is hardly touching 400W at the extreme peaks (for 20 milliseconds, every 3 weeks :P), so the PSU is the least probable culprit...

    DICE products looping sounds and crashing has been pretty much expected behavior for 7 years now.

    I think it was a voltage issue, but motherboard related. It seems as though the value that is set in BIOS actually ends up being .2mv less than what I set. So my CPU was barely being fed most of the time, resulting in the intermittent crash. I believe I've fixed it now.
