I recently went into the BIOS of my 3 month old custom computer to look into the cool n quiet. I enabled it, but what i post to say is that when i scrolled down to the Vid card and cpu voltage they both read "RED critical, MAY BE UNSTABLE" this scared me. I have a 400 watt generic PSU (power supply) that came with my iCute case. does this mean i should buy a new Power Supply? will enabling cool n quiet lower the power my CPU (3500+ Winnie) needs? i want to perfect my computer, please help!

did you check you ps lines?

If you can't see them in the bios,
you can download motherboard monitor 5 that should have no
problems showing you the different voltages.
This way you'll see if the different voltages go too low or not.
If they do, your psu is too light and wont last very long.

Do you have any instability issues?
