i have been getting crashes and freezing lately the following is the readings from my voltage monitor on my ic7:

vcore: 1.66v
ddr: 2.53v
+3.3v: 3.17v
+5v: 4.84v
+12v: 11.25-11.62v
vddq: 1.25v
vtt: 1.52v
vbat: 3.30
5vsb: 4.75v

so do you guys think its the power supply?
 
Those voltage rails seem quite low so a new power supply would be a good idea whether its causing the problem or not. What is being powered from that PSU? (specs)
 
2.8ghz @ 3.5
ic7
1gb pc3200 ddr
geforce fx5900 25mb
2x wdraptor
1x wd1200
1x dvd burner
1x cd burner
2x 120mm fans
3x 80mm fans
2x red cold cathode

the power supply is vantec 420w
 
That power supply is *MORE* than adaquite for your setup, and it is a good, stable supply. That being said, get a multimeter and test the voltage yourself, because software lies. Simple as that.
