Windows 7: Is there anything wrong with my power stats?

Is there anything wrong with my power stats?



May I know is there anything wrong with my power/voltage/psu stats?

I am using Seasonic M12ii 520 bronze PSU

I am suspecting my power supply might have problem as I read that poor power supply might cause bad sectors. I have been changing a WD Black disk every 1 to 2 years due to bad sectors.

A power supply can not cause bad sectors.

Your cpu is rather warm for idle browsing and 1 hard drive is at 102 degrees, everything else looks fine.

If you are having bad luck with WD`s then switch to Seagates. Hard drives are hard drives, as long as they work it doesn`t matter who makes em.

If you think there`s something wrong with your PSU, then by all means replace it. A PSU is a very important part of the pc.

I think the PSU voltages are within specifications---I think the allowance is plus or minus 5% or possibly 10% from 3.3 volts, 5 volts, and 12 volts. You are will within that, reading from the first group of numbers in the "voltages" section.

You show one temp of 141 C. That's very hot if accurate. I don't known how long it lasted or from where it came. Also several temps well beyond 90 C. I don't know if they are accurate either, but any temp beyond 90 C on any component would concern me, if accurate. I'd at least try to find out if it's abnormal for that particular sensor for that program (CPUID) on your hardware.

Hard drive temps are good, under 40 max.

Max core temps are OK--70 or lower.

Is BIOS more accurate? Is BIOS power OK?

Power is fine, but your CPU temp is way too high for idling in BIOS. The MB temp is rather high too, leading me to believe that your case doesn't have adequate ventilation.

How many fans do you have in the case? And what kind of CPU heatsink/fan are you using?

CPU heatsink/fan is the stock one that came with the intel chip.

I have 1 front fan 140mm (inwards), one top fan 140mm (outwards), 1 back fan 120mm (outwards)

What should be a good CPU temp?

A standard CPU idle temp would be in the mid 30s in a decently built desktop.

For most recent Intel CPUs.

You have an i5-760 from 2010. 4 cores. Tcase 72.7 degrees. TDP 95 watts.

I'm not sure if they tend to run hot?

I have a 95 watt TDP processor myself (Intel i5-2500). Currently idling in the high 30s with good cooling in a warm room (27 C, 81 F)

The cores will vary from one to another--they won't all be the same temp.

Idle can be below 30 in relatively cool room if you have excellent cooling.

Idle can be maybe 40 in a warm room with average cooling.

But load temperatures are MUCH more important. Idling at 58 won't hurt anything, but it might mean something and your load temps are likely much higher--if accurate.

What are your ambient temperatures?

Are you positive that Intel cooler is mounted properly on all 4 corners? That push-pin mechanism can be touchy about that. It might look OK at first glance, but be loose on one corner.

That's 85 F.

Hot, but not hot enough to explain a 58 idle, barring further information.

I changed the stock fan/heatsink to a new cooler master hyper 212 plus. Here are the temps. Is it ok?

What is a good MB temp and CPU temp in the BIOS?
