    Hi Recently Ive come across a problem with my psu and my gpu and my cpu cooler i changed all of them but i was looking at other peoples speedfan screenshots and i noticed my +12v rail is mostly always at 2.50v i dont know if thats a problem or not so im attaching a speedfan screenshot of my voltages and temps in hopes that someone might help me figure out why my pc freezes when i play games at varies time periods so play help me

    I think if it was that low the computer wouldn't boot at all to be honest because the 3.3v is also very close to 0v. Try using a program called CPUID hardware monitor. It seems to give me better and more acurate results. Look in the bios as well if you can.

    It doesnt look like the 12v sensor is damaged as it is reporting a range of different voltages. It may be that the PSU is broken or the motherboard is not sending correct voltage information. It is hard to tell unless you have a voltage multimeter around.

    nah i don't just a side note tho i recently replaced the psu and that psu was doing the same thing during gaming too so im guessing it could be the processor or mobo since everything else is basically a week or 2 old

    Check your voltages in the bios. There is no way your 12V is that low; it would not even post if it were.

    Next post the exact system specs; ie make and model of mb, brand and wattage of pw supply, brand and speed of ram, what cpu, what video card, etc, etc, etc. Post links to your parts if possible.

    Since you have a gigabyte board, why not load easytune on your system? This will give you all of the hardware readings. You can download the latest version at the gigabyte site.

    As to your problem, does it freeze on just one game or all games? Does it freeze when doing some cpu intensive task like video encoding?

    OK, if you have easytune installed, what does it show for temps and voltages? Make sure you run something that stresses the system like prime95 when checking voltages.

    What does your video card show for temps under a load?

    Your cpu temps seem OK. Have you opened the system to check the mounting of the video cooler and given the system a good cleaning with a can of air?

    It may well be. XFX has a lifetime warranty so you can return the card. Just go through the normal rma process.
