Windows 7: Frequent BSOD, need to determine faulty parts

You know how you can split the power cable going to the motherboard and remove 4 pins of it right? I did that and it shows the 3.3v at 3.3v again, how does that work, and will it even work?

Honestly, it doesn't matter what you see now. If you saw the 3.3v rail reading 2.9 in the BIOS, that's bad. No it doesn't matter which plug of the pair you use. The power source is the same for either of the 4pins.

I'm sure you are right, but is it guaranteed that it is the PSU that's bad and not the motherboard?

Okay, sorry about that. My language got changed on swype and everything was in Spanish. So, you need to test your PSU, here's how.
