+12V drop after upgrade

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi
So I upgraded my CPU and MOBO to 3570k and Z77A-G45 and noticed in HWiNFO64 that the +12V rail is 11.8 and during gaming 11.7/6, before the upgrade (from Q6600, DP965LT) the +12V rail used to be 12 and 11.9 during gaming...
Do you think this reading is faulty?
I have the SeaSonic S12II 620W so it's supposed to be high quality.

I think you're looking too much into it, I wouldn't worry in the slightest about that mate.

PSU monitoring software is notoriously unreliable. Ignore it, it's fine.

That 620W PSU can actually put out 620W continuously, and it's highly unlikely it's anywhere close to being overloaded unless you have a pair of monster video cards running in your machine.

Realize that computer PSUs aren't considered super high precision, as their 3% - 5% spec for voltage variation indicates.
