    Albeit, parsecs math used 5% as is customary to have arrived at his mathematical results.

    At idle, and IMHO, those numbers are low in the screenshot. And could, I say could not IS, account for why a low load game doesn't trigger freezes yet any game that forces the gfx cards to ramp up and stand up straight in drawing req'd additional demands of the PSU things fall flat.

    Then again, me leaning in over a case for hours is not to be compared to diagnosis over the internet
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    You should see writing near this connector that has the name of the fan header.
    If the name near the fan header is NOT CPUFAN1 this is why your screen-shot shows 0 rpm.
    Yeah, I haven't opened the PC for some time now after the last time it was in someone else's hands for upgrading... I'll take a look at it this weekend, I'll try reconnecting it if it's not in the right place, and I'll tell you if anything changes... But what causes my PC to freeze if that's not the problem? :p
