Problems with OCZ ModStream520W?

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

i have very low lines on my new ModStream MBM shows only 11,59V on +12V line

 

3,3V line is 3,31V

5V line is 4,97V

Vcore is 1,36V

 

I also got warning: ''The NVIDIA System Sentinel is reporting that the NVIDIA-powered graphic card is not receiving sufficient power.''

 

I did not connect molex to my mobo.. should I? Is that the problem?

 

I did not overclock at all.. hardware is listed in my signature..

yes you need to have the molex and all other psu connections to the mobo plugged in. it helps to supply power to the whole board. i have all four connnectors plugged in with the same power supply and have never had any problems.

well i pluged in molex and it's the same in mbm.. 11,59V.. But in bios it is 11,83V.. Is this ok? Where else can i get voltages? Please list some programs for reading sensors.. i only have MBM5 (and i cant select my board in Configuration Wizard)

search the forum mbm 5 config files or just load smart guardian off the disk that came with your mb. something i forgot to say was to use a molex that is not powering anything but the mb. take the software readings with a grain of salt, they are not the most accurate.

Unless yours is defective, the ModStream has more than enough power for your system.

 

You must use a DVM/DMM it get true voltage readings.

Test like this: http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/show...ad.php?t=137886

 

Plug in all 4 power plugs in to the mobo & make sure they are tight.

Put the video on its own (unshared) line(s) & plug in both power connectors.

 

Good Luck :nod:

Everest from Lavalys is a good tool to check your system.

PWMIC is the power circuit for the CPU. There is a temp diode mounted on the motherboard near the PWMIC area. It's between the CPU and the I/O panel.
