I will NEVER stop blaming my 4-pin connector. Christmas is right around the corner, and soon I will have a beastly power supply. With 8-pin. I'll go for 3GHz.

My PSU also blows. 10.62v on +12v according to Everest.
I can do a suicide run... 12x250 @ 1.45v or so. Bet it doesn't boot though... :laugh:

P O S there was a rash here a while back of those Hiper PSU's not being so good to members. IIRC Kenny was trying for 3.0GHZ with his 939 and the PSU took his mobo when it blew. Personally (and I know I will catch flack for this) I wouldnt be pushing my equiptment to its max if my PSU didnt show 12V+ under load.

I personally had issues with my Antec NEO550 I wasnt sure it was right to begin with, a friend bought it and it blew in his rig. Took nothing with it and the egg still warrantied it , so no biggie. I then went to my OCZ GSX700. First on sucked as well, but I had read great things about them. Once again RMA'd and got the one Im on now, plus bought another for my girls rig.

Both PSU's show over 12.3V+ at idle and 12.16V+ at full load.

Check in Panchos thread on PSU's....But as I say a low voltage PSU will do nothing but cause you headaches and cost you $$$$$$:toast:
