PSU voltage question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
1) Just got an antec truepower trio 650W and the 3.3V rail runs at 3.25-3.26...my question is this: should this be replaced? or does that matter..

edit: 2) I just figured also that I wanted to bring whichever PSU I use now over to my next system that I will be building in the very near future (my chipset doesnt support core 2, case is too small for future cards etc) and I'd like it to be able to support 2 8800GTSs in SLI. Well I'm curious if the one I have here will suffice (along with 2 drives in R0) or if I should shoot higher..assuming the 1st issue is no problem of course. The truepower trio 650 has 3 19A 12V rails for a total of 57A....

thx for your help!!

nah..its fine. Your still within a + or - 12% margin, more than likely. You should measure the voltage off a point with a DMM to verify...dont take what your software is telling you! Software can monitor the voltage in funky ways..sometimes averaging the differences and such..its never that accurate when it comes to voltages from the PSU.

Your mobo software will show you that most of the time setting RAM for 2.3v = 2.25 or even 2.2v and droop down below that under load. So assuming those readings were off by .5v you would be great! See what I mean...until you measure it yourself..dont believe the software.
