MSI mobo probs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My friend is running a MSI board. Not sure the exact model but it is one that is a couple years old and he did the BIOS update to be able to run the new AM3+ CPUs. Well he has noticed after upgrading(maybe just started paying it attention) that his 12v rail is reading slightly below (11.986ish.) While under load though it will drop to 11.8 or .7. His other voltages on the board seem to fluctuate a little here and there too. On my intel board I don't seem to have any fluctuation. So do you think the software is reading wrong or bad mobo after a couple years? Or possibly going bad PSU?

How is the rails read, with a digital meter?

If it's through some sort of software it will probable be off.

For example I use two software monitoring tools for different reasons, one is telling me it's at 11.7v and the other at 12.252.

If it's too low or high the board should shut down for protection.


Best way is to get a digital meter and monitor it.
