Ok I have been doing a little bet of voltage reading

and I came to a disturbing fact

almost all of my 4pins and 3 pins are only drawing out close to 8 volts!!!

I just bought a 12v 85cfg 120mm fan and I can tell you one thing its NOT pushing 85cfg

Im currently running a 350watt power supply that came with my full tower
should I try finding a new powersupply?
Im not even running that many fans just my fop38, hd, and 2 small case fans...
What does the hardware monitor say the actual 12V voltage is?,
If it were as low as 8V I'd be surprised if you’re hard drives would work, are you sure you’re measuring the correct line? i.e. measure voltage between yellow line in the molex connector to ground (black wire or case).
omg I cant believe I made such a stupid mistake=/

I was measuring the black and red!!!

it says it right thank you soo much

I was about ready to buy a new ps
