Hey everyone I think my psu is causing my pc to crash, it crashes randomly when Im playing and it instantly crashes when I run furMark. I doesnt crash when using prime75 though. Could someone tell me if these voltages are ok?

Using HWMonitor:
1.22 Volts (CPU VCORE)
1.52 Volts (DDR)
3.07 Volts (+3.3V)
4.54 Volts (+5V)
12.29 Volts (+12V)

When running Prime95(min voltages):
1.20 Volts (CPU VCORE)
1.52 Volts (DDR)
2.944 Volts (+3.3V)
4.328 Volts (+5V)
11.968 Volts (+12V)

I think it doesnt crash using prime95 because my cpu is a little old (i7 920), it crashes with FurMark and my gpu is GTX 970.

I've just run a "render test" on GPU-Z, its something that can be done by clicking on question mark on the side of pcie on gpu-z and these were the voltages:

When running pcie test GPU-Z(min voltages):

1.20 Volts (CPU VCORE)
1.52 Volts (DDR)
2.816 Volts (+3.3V)
4.220 Volts (+5V)
11.584 Volts (+12V)

What is the manufacturer and model of that PSU? Also what is its age? Although those voltages are not great, they are not the worst around either. Still, they reflect what I'd expected on a cheap PSU, not something of want to use.
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the GPU drivers, making sure to use the newest ones available from the manufacturer's website?

I had something like nox urano 500w for like 7 or 8 years. One day I was using my pc and it started smelling burned in the room, right at the moment i looked at my pc it sparkled and the light at my home went down. After that I got one from a friend its a Tacens Mars MP600 so I dont know what age it is. Do you think it can handle an I7 920 and a gtx 970 ?

No I don't think that is enough. You will need at least something like a Corsair CX, Seasonic S12ii, Seasonic Focus Plus or better. The wattage is enough, but that PSU probably can't actually do 600w. Look for 500w or more.
