strange uncore power reading on a asus z97-a

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So have had hwmonitor running and noticed something strange when I glanced at the uncore readings..
The minimum shows -0.57W??
Is this just a fluke or should I be worried that something is wrong?
Here is a screenshot:

It's probably a misread calculation of the estimated wattage from the Uncore. Have you tried using HWinfo64 instead for the hardware sensor readings?

I will try that if this happens again.
The reason this puzzles me is because I have never seen it go into negative like that.

You know it is impossible to have negative power consumption so I wouldn't worry too much about this.

Make sure you are using the latest version, 1.29.

A few minor bugs like negative offset voltages have been fixed in this version.

The power consumption counters are sometimes reset during stand by mode so when you come out of stand by mode, it is possible for power consumption to be calculated incorrectly. If that is what happened, I am sure this bug will be taken care of in the next release.

I will upgrade the version as I am still using 1.28.
But the issue here is that I have used this version for months and have never seen anything like this even when leaving hwmonitor running for days.
I also have never ever put my pc in standby as I am one of those people who have it on 24/7.
