PSU issue

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I was reading my PSU 12v rail stats in SpeedFan, and they seem quite low.

+12v = 11.40

***??? Isn't that like way low? Is there a more accurate way of getting rail readings?

speedfan is usually wrong about that

Don't use software for checking voltages.

Check it with a multimeter, or at the very least, use BIOS readings.
2 OP pls nerf

Hmm... I don't have a multimeter. Do you know where I can get one?

I'm assuming RadioShack, but idk.

Its normal for the 12v+ rails to undervolt slightly, especially on PSU's with split rails. You should only worry if you're 12v+ undervolts by more than 0.5v or if your 5v+/3v+ rails begin to undervolt.

Reread from the BIOS, this isn;t looking good.

+12v 11.98
+3.3 3.24
+3.3 dual 3.24
+5v 4.91

I'm on a spare rig right now until I get this worked out.
