Question about RaidMax Aurora RX580 (RX580F) 580-Watt Power Supply
Hey, when I check my 12v rail it says I'm running 11.0 and sometimes in the 10s! Is there anyway I can get this up? This is when it's sitting here doing nothing and when it's doing games or looking for something on HD. Is there anyway to give this thing some more juice so my GFX card and HDs will work right?
Replace that PSU as soon as possible. When supply voltage is too low, then current is increased to compensate, resulting in more heat. This can damage your video card and motherboard.
I know it is possible to replace bad components or to upgrade a low quality power supply with better components, but it takes soldering skills, and safety is an issue as well. Unless you plan to do it yourself and you have a lot of free time, then it will be more cost effective to replace the power supply with a better model, as the cost of a professional repair is much more than it costs to just buy a new one. From reading on the forums, Raidmax is not a good brand and they usually use low quality and underpowered components for the rating they claim.
I personally have one with a burnt out component that I plan to fix as soon as I find a schematic or learn the specs of the old component. I have a lot of free time and little money.
Don't throw out your defective power supply. There are still a lot of good components that could be salvaged for electronics projects. It may be worth a few bucks to an electronics enthusiast, but it's worth it to give it away for free or the cost of postage just to keep it out of the landfill.

Tips for a great answer:
The stock 305W power supply guarantees 20 to 25W on the +5VSB rails and 150 to 170W on the 3.3v/5V Rails. Many GTX 750 TI now say (300W PSU that can supply 18 AMPS MIN on the 12v rail aka 216W on the 12v rail.
Many EPS 12v power supplies only guarantee 10 to 15W on the +5VSB and 125 to 130W on the 3.3v Rails.
This means you buy the supply and it may not even turn on. If it does it wont work with the 960 card installed.
Buying a power supply is not a single 12v rail and thats the only thing it uses.
There are many users who should have gotten a corsair RM1000 but instead chose an ATX not EPS 12v power supply at 500 to 750W and they have the Solid Amber Light of *****. EPS12v 2.92 for 750W and up guarantees 150W on the 3.3v rail, 20W on the +5vsb rail and 375W on the 12v Rails minimum.
