PSU 12V+ Rail concern.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey. I cant fully remember the acceptable range for the rails on a PSU and I've noticed something which worries me slightely as im not sure if its within an acceptable range.

Looking at speedfan it seems my 12v+ is 12.22 and at times goes to 12.16.

Is this bad ?

Well thats put my mind more at rest. You see I thought my 12v has always been like that but due to some recent crashes....for no reason I wondered if it could be my PSU being lame.

Well this is good news for me then lol. My G-card doesnt even run off my main PSU..I have a dedicated one for that.

Cheers again guys.

Yeah, I wouldn't be worried about a drop from 12.22 to 12.16 as it's within the 3% tolerance. Checking with a multimeter would definitively put any concern to rest.
