PSU randomly powers off PC no warning ( long story made short , just basic description) there is a a mod related question here.
based on the below informtaion and some other troubleshotting it was advised the PSU was bad. I'm still wonding MB or ram but..
No name on the PSU but using the Model number found its from Taiwan Youngyear Electronics CO LTD Model PSIV-500-2 (+3.3-32A,+5-47A,+12V-22A,-5V- 0.5A)
V-Core -- 1.36V
+3.3v -- 3.38V
+5V -- 5.67V
+12V -- 12.03V
+5 Standby -- 5.67V
Now for the Mod related question,
Should I atempt to mod/Repair the PSU to try and get the Voltages to more stable levels or should i just toss the PSU and get a new one? Wondering this before attempting full case mod as i don't want to damage anything.
