Enermax platimax, please check my new voltages ! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Is there a reason you're worrying about the voltages? Have you encountered any problems? As said above, you can completely ignore software readings.

    Yes that will work, if you're careful (i.e. be gentle and don't short anything out).  Connect the negative (black) probe of your meter to bare metal on your computer's case, and poke the positive (red) lead into free (unused) PSU outputs.  Yellow is 12v and red is 5v.  If you're even more careful (and can safely get to it, sleeved cables make this nearly impossible), you can also poke the meter's positive probe into the back of the 24-pin ATX power connector on the motherboard.  You would be inserting the probe side-by-side with certain wires: Yellow is 12v, red and purple are 5v, orange is 3.3v, and blue is -12v.
    That said, it sounds to me like your system is running fine.  You could cause an actual problem by messing around if you don't know what you are doing. wink.gif

Personally i think the best thing you can do? is just shut the case doors and use the pc as could imagine that your like one of those half informed types that sort of get there but don't then like when you have those little silver boxes round ferrite coils in radio type boards and see the screw slot and turn screw then wonder why it don't work anymore?

As they say if in doubt leave it well alone.
As been stated it's with in tolerances so just use it and Enermax are on of or it seams are one of the good manufacturers.

To use a multi meter put black probe in a black line and red in back of the wire/voltage ie where wire goes into plug you want to check so you can check ATX plug while in operation as your not transmitting anything only receiving readings and the bare part if enclosed by plug so unless your doing something really stupid? theres no risk!

Why almost every time when i start my PC, i get from the PSU some noises, electrical noises, happens all the time, and to stop it i need to shut down and remove the power cord for 20 minutes, then plug it back, and power up again, and its normal again, then if i close the PC, and re-open again it makes the same noises.
Sometimes it doesn't make them, but for 2-3 days makes the noises all the time, happens only when i stress the PC, on the smallest usage makes the noise. And in games makes all the time and loud.
