My +3.3v is 2.992 to 3.008 - is this good or bad?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
All of a sudden, today, Probe v2.24.02 on my Asus A8V-E Deluxe board is showing +2.992 to 3.008 as my +3.3v. I'm not oc'ing anything. What would cause the drop in this voltage, what should the norm be and how to I get it to that level?

My cpu is AMD Athlon 3500+ Clawhammer. Have not had any problems until this pops up today. The normal deviation is 10% and my alarm on Probe went off. To stop the alarm, I set the level to 12%. Don't know if I should have done that or not.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much - have a great holiday season - and be blessed!

Sounds like it could be a PSU problem - but your PSU shouldn't be struggling to run that.

Its far too low though

That's too low, max should be ±5%

I'm guessing it isn't your real voltages though, it's usually off by alot

Prosser13 - thanks for the info. I agree, this PSU has all the power to run all that I have with no problem. So, if that is not the problem, what else would cause the low voltage?

BTW, is there any way to test the PSU - without any testing equipment?

I've got that same PSU, and its powering essentially the same hardware, so its not stretched.

No, theres not really The easiest way would be to buy/borrow a cheap multimeter and read the rails - if that says the same, you've gotta problem

the only way to test your PSU is by a multimeter.

Multimeters are real cheap at radioshack and the likes and they are way more accurate then a sensor reading.

Btw, you can fill your system specs in your user cp.

Thanks everyone that has responded - I think maybe I've located the problem. I had a suggestion to plug my power directly into the wall socket instead of my surge protector. Did that and it seems to have settled everything down. I'm still going to check out the PSU.

Again, thanks for the input!

Sounds like you might have sorted it - maybe the surge protector was limiting the power the PSU could draw
