Do these graphs look normal or is there an issue?

Hi EOC community! I hope all is well.


My anxiety is through the roof as I constantly stare and observe the hardware graphs. I'm hoping someone has answers that will give me peace of mind.

I am using the Gigabyte System Information Viewer. I don't normally monitor my hardware, but recently I did because I just replaced all the fans, upgraded the heat sink, and installed some LED lights.

I’ll start with some specs:
Chassis...........................CM Storm Scout 2
CPU................................i7 6700k
Mobo..............................GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev.1.0) BIOS Ver. 8
CPU paste........................Arctic silver 5 (a few years old with decreased viscosity)
Heatsink..........................CM Hyper 212x (manual didn't say LGA 1151, but specs do lol)
PSU................................Corsair HX650
No. Fans.........................8 (including the cpu) and all are set on fixed-800 rpm
Extra LED........................RGB 350 DEEPCOOL
FP fan controller...............Lamptron LCD
RAM...............................G.Skill 2x8GB Part No. F4-3200C15-8GTZ (default mobo stock clock @ 2133 MT/s)
OS.................................Win 7 64-bit SP1

Update: As I am writing this I just noticed that there's a discrepancy in the graphs I am comparing. I am comparing a snippet of the live graph vs the snippet of the recorded graph. The recorded graph instantly changed the moment I decided to look at a recorded graph I made yesterday and then switched back to the one I just made. See proof below. Is that suppose to happen? I'm referring to the overall voltage graphs I recorded in a time span of 1 hour. The other graphs below the first 2 are included as well, but unfortunately I did not capture spikes from the live graphs for those other ones. I feel like I need to replace the PSU or the new mobo I bought a little over a year ago.

Meh. All I see is a bunch of squiggly lines and numbers and such......

What I'm really trying to say (a little more serious now) is that if you had dropped 12v to 0v the PC would have shut off.

My speculation is that everything is fine if you've never had a problem and you're worrying for nothing. It looks to me like all good quality components.....

Stop using your time staring at graphs and maybe utilize that time for gaming instead.... If you can run some intense games and have no issues (leaving the graphs closed) then carry on until you actually have an issue.
