I don't have a multi-meter with a digital display so I did my best reading the results. It looks like the 12v, 3.3v, and 5.5v are around 11.5v, 3v and 4.6v respecitively. Also my computer crashed during the testing, and once again when I was trying to write this post the first time

Where did you look up the values?

I have a multi-meter just doesn't have a display but those values are pretty close.

After It crashed two times in a row one during testing and one after rebooting I opened up HWMonitor to see what voltages it was showing me (I know those can't really be counted on and such) and it was showing me around 11.4 for the 12v. That gave me the idea to start playing with 24 pin connector, and when I applied pressure on it in one direction the readings jumped to 11.9v and when I let go they would drop back again. Could it just be a problem with the connector on the motherboard or on the cord itself?

I am no hardware expert, you tell me.
Sorry for this line, wasn't 100% awake.

Do you have another cord or could you borrow a cord to test?
To be able to answer your question it needs to be tested with a cord that works good.
You could also test the cord in another system of course

Haha, don't worry, first line was fine too

My power supply isn't fully modular unfortunately the 24 pin cannot be replaced.

I could try the power supply in a different system but this computer barely crashes (once every 2-3 days, usually more than once when it crashes though) when I only have one video card going with no overclock on my cpu. I feel like it could be fine for several days in another system.

I've got a spare 500 watt power supply around but it's probably only capable of running one video card without an overclock, I guess I could put it in, but I'd have to run almost a week to be sure it was the power supply/cable that was the issue.

Not too sure what's the best thing to do right now, I've got the cable pushed up and propped in a way that I think fixes the issue (Hopefully that is the issue, hope clouds reason sometimes). I could just see if that fixes the issue, still wouldn't know if its the connector on the motherboard or the connector on the cable or possibly the actually lines inside.

I might just go ahead and run both cards with an overclock on the cpu and try to stress it out as much as possible to see if I can get a crash. Crashes were much more frequent with either an overclock or double gpu config and both.

You know that while troubleshooting overclocking is a thing that in most cases will cause only more problems?

It can cause more problems, but right now I only have one problem so any new sorts of issues/crashes if any should be easily identified. I think and hope its a power supply issue, and that's one way to stress it out. I don't know what else I can do

It's been stable for 4 days now, with overclocks and a double card setup. The issue is a problem with the 24 pin cord or connector on the motherboard.

Thanks for all the help Axe0, really appreciate the time you put into this thread and the help you provided.

HD monitors DVI or HDMI input ?
I am about to purchase a new 24" full HD monitor. Some I am looking at just have DVI input whereas some others have HDMI also. My GPU supports both types but which will give the best quality, or is there nothing in it ?
