My 5 year old H81 gamer's voltage rails went and stayed low after a number of 'surge protection' related auto-resets last night, all while I had plugged a brand new Logitech G923 in and mid game. After entering the BIOS after each reset I noticed the voltage rails were quite low:
  • +12v was 10.56v
  • +5v was 4.48v
  • +3.3 was 2.99v
They stayed low even with the G923 wheel was plugged out. The voltage levels returned to total normal after the system went cold and tried again.

What are the odds it's the:
  • PSU
  • Mainboard
  • G923 wheel
Specs
  • PSU: 500W Coolermaster
