Default System Freezing

Okay,, just recently my system will just stop and lock up. No crashes no events just stops.

I was using speedfn monitoring my temps, and noticed my 12V is now 10.6V. I'm pretty sure it use to be very close to 12V.

Would this cause the locks, as it usually happens when I'm folding, so drawing lots-O-power.

I just had my ups signal an internal fault, and theses issues start cropping up after that.

Sounds like you already know what the answer is, try replacing the PSU and see if that alleviates the freezing.

Then lower the voltage (ram/gpu/cpu) until you can get another one. Better yet take out some ram, stop overclocking(if you are) and see if that lower power consumption fixes the issue.

If it does you know you need a new PSU.

Okay, How will that effect the 10.6V in speedfan?

Or will it just give more Volts for the rest?

Edit

Hmm, just used Everst and it says the 12V is 11.99Vs

So which is right?

Also, what else might it be?
