As for your 12v rail,i think you should look into it,as your right,should be just above the 12v mark,well mine is anyway,is your PSU single 12v rail,or multi,???
The reviews indicated people were actually getting lower temperatures than AS5. At this point though, I find everyone has different results with the same things. It's pretty annoying.

It's a single volt rail. Corsair TX850W with 70 amps on a single +12. The voltage doesn't appear to change at all- a good thing, but I really have no way of telling if the 11.8 is accurate or not since I don't have any devices with which to measure the real amount. Using Everest/Speed Fan/HW Monitor to measure:



Again, I might just be paranoid here since I don't have any stability issues. I also know that software is unable to monitor voltages accurately at the moment. Should I be concerned? Are there any other programs I can cross check Everest's values with?

Thanks again.

[edit] I can't seem to find a listing for the 12v rail in the bios. Am I just blind, or is it actually not present? I found an amperage listing for ICore, ICore_NB, and I12v, all of which switched back and forth between two close numbers. The only voltages I found were CPU VCore, NBVcore, 3.3, and 5v?

I would'nt be too concerned about the 12v rail showing 11.88v,as you say,software is'nt very accurate for this.

What i would like to know is are you setting all the values in the bios manually,or have you left a lot on auto,????

Any chance you could post screenshots of cpu-z,showing cpu tab,and memory tab,this would help a lot.

Ah, all on auto. Been testing all my components to make sure they work before I try manually setting any voltages or speeds.

WOW thats a nice psu. I wouldn't be too worried about a 0.12 voltage drop with that kind of current.

There IS a reason that you can't see the 12v rail in the BIOS. After BIOS 1.2O for Stupid reason MSI techs that write the BIOS Totally forgot that when you enable to the Code to be able to press the down arrow one more time when COmpletely at the bottom of a page in the BIOS it does't diasables the ability to scroll completely down the Screen.

SOOOOO, When you go into the either the hardware monitor section I the BIOS you can see all of the Volt monitoring Except the last one.....

And guess which one that JUST SO HAPPENS to be??? YOu guessed it! The 12V+ Rail reading....

I think that it's a great reading to have to be able to trouble shoot power stability issues. I said something to "Tony at OCZ" being that he was the one that gtting all of the BIOS from MSI for this board BUT he NEVER even responded....

SO if someone wants to take it upon themselves to call MSI and bring this to their attentions, by all means feel free. If not, then I guess that I will go Ahead and do it!

I would also like to add that Yes, this reading Is Very important. If the Motherboard is not accepting 12v form the PSU and the PSU is fine, you Will have Stability issues! Rebooting at random and locks up galore!!! Trust me, it's happened to me before on an older board made by Asus...
