I wanted to ask

Are my power supply readings bad?

My PC crashes;
Blue Screen of Death
Gaming Crash
Windows Crash
PC hang out of no where (frozen)
Errors during stress test

Hardware monitor  ITE IT87
Voltage 0  1.17 Volts [0x49] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1  3.20 Volts [0xC8] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3  4.76 Volts [0xB1] (+5V)
Voltage 4  11.39 Volts [0xB2] (+12V)
Voltage 7  4.65 Volts [0xAD] (+5V VCCH)
Temperature 0  67 degC (152 degF) [0x43] (CPU)
Temperature 1  48 degC (118 degF) [0x30] (Mainboard)

Is my 12v voltage bad? Its 11.33~11.49v

Using a Corsair CS750M, which has more than enough power to power my 300w system

Generally the results from the software monitor should be taken as a grain of salt - if you really need to test their voltages you will need a multimeter for that icon_idea.gif

Any good 500w PSU? Under rm200.

The PSU that come with the Esuperpower case I got from Idealtech finally died after 2.5 years, pretty impressive for cap ayam PSU, I use it almost everyday on i3 4160 + r7 360, and this GPU consume more power than its Nvidia counterpart too, and it never explode once, just stopped working properly now. Thats why Im beginning to be sceptical about PSU in general, is it true if I spend more = better quality and longer lasting? Hmm

Yup. You get what you pay for.

FSP Hexa 550W should be around that price.

Yes, we are Silverstone's distributor.
However, we only recommend good quality and low warranty PSU smile.gif If the PSU is not good, we don't dare to mention here too.

Just found this and great tutorial, I figured out many people though the 80+ rating means it only produce 80+% of the wattage stated on the PSU.

Super Flower Leadex Gold 850W at RM649 from C-Zone. Another option is Seasonic Focus+ 850W at RM679 from C-Zone if you want full Japanese caps.

I was using the Silverstone strider plus 500w for 3 years until lately the PC randomly shuts off. Not sure what's the reason but decided to get a new PSU. I got the Seasonic focus plus 750w gold import from US and the random shut off solved. I guess its time to retire Silverstone.

Any electronics has age. Japanese parts tends to last longer. Silverstone Strider 500W is on the budget side of things. Better grade 500ish is Seasonic S12 II 520W at RM265 from C-Zone. High grade 550W is Super Flower Leadex Gold 550W at RM429.

Power supply price is usually you get what you pay for. Check for reviews before buying. There are a few conman brands.

Please stay away from Seasonic PSU, their PSU got a lot of problems.

Check the model for V750. Seasonic based blows Enhance away. Check the model number before buying.
