CPUID HM 12v reads ~8V

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is this normal for a Seasonic X650. I was checking some sleeving to make sure I didn't bork something up I noticed the +12v in CPUID HM is reading ~+8v. Using stock ATX whip. Sleeved PCI E and custom HHD Harness.

Rig specs:
E7200 Stock
Ati X1950 Pro
2x2g 1066 DDR2
Asus Micro Atx board
Window XP Home SP3

Using software to monitor read your +12V voltage is pretty much never accurate in my experience, if you want to be sure it's running at appropriate voltages and not too low get a multimeter.

Altho I'm not sure, but I'd say that if your +12V line really was running at about 8V, you'd have a bunch of problems so I think you're in the clear.

Do you have access to a voltmeter? Software is never 100% accurate, in fact, I would be dumbfounded if most programs could get it near 80% accuracy.

If it was at 8v your system wouldn't boot or it would be dead.

Thanks. I got my multimeter out I just break it down to test it.

Also strange enough now it's slowly raising. Now it's around +8.2v and has gone up .25v in the last 5 minutes

+12v is +12v right? I can just test it from my PCIE right?

That's software readings for you... what's the multimeter telling you?

Software voltage monitoring is worthless.

I get the same issue but in bios it reads 12.1V for the 12v line
