CPUID Hardware monitor; are these voltages anything to worry about?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm not used to this app. I've only used it because I have quite a few hard drives dying and it seems to be an abnormally high rate. I was just checking to see if perhaps the PSU was the issue...

700

What the heck is Vin4 5 6 ?

Yes, 6.29v on what should be 5v is a little worry some. I don't remember what the allowable tolerance is, but this seems to be out of it.

Here is an older screenshot of mine with a voltage closer to 5v

Software voltage monitoring is inaccurate and effectively worthless, if you really want to know what voltages your PSU is putting out then you'll need to use a digital multimeter to read off of the wires themselves.

Well if the voltages for your core and everything else is correct I would believe that the 5v is at 6.29, and would rma the powersupply since it's rated voltages for the 5v is far too high. If you are having drives fail and you see your voltage is so high for the 5 volt rail then yes that's huge indication that theres a problem. Cause if the 5v is so far off who knows what sort of fluctations you are getting.

That was my instinct as well. I have a multimeter and will pull it out today biggrin.gif

Verified with a multimeter this morning; 5.10 to 5.17V. So I'm not worried at all, CPUID HW Monitor is wrong. I got my new Corsair HX1000 this morning and installed it.

If the HDDs keep dying I'll know its likely just my bad luck rolleyes.gif
