Are you sure your looking in the right direction ?.
I will confess I known nothing about the A64, your MoBo or if the PSU even has all the proper voltages & currents BUT.
First off the core voltage reading from the computor circuits could be off alittle bit.
Your CPUburn would crash to if PSU was that bad.
Second because of the kind of crashing, first off is the video card seated right (all the gold pins look level) ?.
Does your RAM look seated right also ?.
Have you tried a different set of RAM ?.
Have you tried a different video card ?.
I would also check the MoBo website & see if there is a BIOS update that may fix your problem.
Have you tried a house fan blowing in on the MoBo in case your problem is heat related ?
Also could be MoBo has cheap voltage regulation to. I also had another dumb idea what if that CPU is an FX, na I think it would crash at power on system test then.
Normally on a possible weak supply supply I would recommend a second PSU that would power all devices but the MoBo. The HD, CD/DVD & all the fans. & remove all the xtra cards like your TV & wireless card. Then test your 3Dmark again.
Hope this helps.
