Freezes when playing under load


Recommended Posts

When playing battelfield 1 it freezes for about 15 or 20 minutes looking at hwinfo on the 12v rail goes down to 11.6 and using a benchmark it can go down to 11.5


No load remains at 12,096 using a browser at 12,024 and using some non-demanding game 11,952


Using a tester gives this result



What causes those freezes


Psu corsair ax 750 gold

DO you use extensions on your cables? If not are yuou using the cables that came with the PSU?


Extensions can cause those voltage drops



I don't use extensions I don't know if with those voltages I should have problems in that game or if it's something from software or windows update

My ssd has 82% life but I don't think the ssd is the problem


Any suggestion?


on which rail is the gpu used if it is v1 or v2 or -12 in the tester?

If a cable is bent in only one position, can it affect the load voltage?


Usually bending cables does not do any damage but your PSU is a real dinosaur and you may want to consider jumping to a RM850 (2019) which is far more modern in design. It's also cheaper too.
