Faulty PSU? Check out my volts/rails! What the heck!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Having a hard time determining if this is a motherboard or PSU issue.
I have been having a lot of really strange problems with my PC and I just downloaded SpeedFan to check my PSU and this is what I get:




This looks to me like my PSU has gone bad? Can anyone confirm?

The data is often way wrong or just not interpreted correctly. Those aren't the actual values, and the computer wouldn't be running with voltages like that.

If you want something remotely accurate, grab a multimeter and take the measurements yourself on the plugs.

Use a program like AIDA 64 to check out your voltages. I had an AX1200 that had some strange voltages and I saw them with AIDA 64. At first I did not worry because I though software would not be able to detect these things. In about a week the psu went out. I trust it now. You can also try HWMonitor. You might be ablt to see if the free version of these products are able to show you voltages. Then compare to what you posted

Software wont show you the right numbers no matter what software it is

Get a digtal multi meter only way to give you the right numbers

this, 1000x this.

While it's very clear speedfan is wrong, no software-based program will give you 100% correct numbers. Get a multimeter. If you're cheap and have a Harbor Freight tool store nearby, they're less than $5 usually.

Just look up the pinouts for ATX connections and put the black to a ground, and put the red lead to the rail you want to test. Pretty simple.

If the numbers in my PSU where right it would either be on fire or have shut off

So i dont bother with anything it says

Same with every other PSU i have had or worked with

Software is never accurate
