Cliffro Posted September 15, 2010 Share Posted September 15, 2010 Over the last few weeks I've noticed a trend. My 12v readings have been dipping to 11.58v which while within specs, it causes(d) a noticeable dip in performance in games. Well I came here today because I noticed it hit 11.07 while testing Nvidia drivers for Mercenaries 2 as the newer ones seem to cause what I can only describe as "smearing" in game in areas where buildings/props have been destroyed. I had cleared my min/max readings in CPUID Hardware Monitor so I opened Furmark and ran it, my readings while it was running are attached. I just ran it again with Furmark 1.8.2 as I was using 1.7.0 before, I logged it with HWMonitor Pro and attached the 12v results. Edit: I keep HWMonitor running to monitor my CPU temps, that's how I noticed the initial dips to 11.58v. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
