they use different levels of software accuracy (cost), a pc giving voltage readings which are slightly off is less likely to be life threatening than an aeroplane.

I take it you a suggesting a 20.00 multimeter is automaticaly more accurate than the components and techniques used on your 200.00 motherboard. There is a need for accuracy with the PC also,even with mundane tasks such as keeping the time.

so now you're going to compare reading accurate voltage readings with keeping time? you do realise the two are not comparable.. the multimetere is designed to take voltage readings not run a cpu/multiple graphics cards and various other drives... so yes it would be more accurate, I thought it was commonm knowledge that software voltage readings are not accurate and the only true way to measure accurate readings was with a multimeter? Apparently not.


here, have a read, some average people with cheap multimeters proving how inaccurate software readings really are.

oh and here's one from these very forums, i'll add a quote from the resident psu editor in case you stilll have doubt...

Unless you are using an older analog meter you have software/firmware involved with your multimeter also. There is no cost reason quality voltage measuring components cannot be used on a motherboard.When you use a multimeter there is a very good chance you are not referencing a point with the same ground potential that the sensor on the motherboard is.If you do not use the same exact ground point for both readings you are going to get these differences.I did read your links and I kind of liked it when the guy asked/wondered why the same quality of components cannot be found in a motherboard as in a multimeter,they can.

Now your just twisting it all around, the point was that motherboards generally do not give accurate voltage readings.

the main 24pin connector has two leads into the psu.. make sure both are connected

Not mixing things around at all.I simply gave you a reason why the multimeter and the software reported voltages can differ,that reason is that they are using a different reference point for ground.Not all grounds are equal.The reason is not that techniques and components to accuratly measure and report voltages via software have not been fully developed,they have, and there is no reason to believe that motherboards use sub-standard components to do this measuring and reporting.This is represented in one of the links you provided when the person notes the cost for quality components is not an issue.
