My PSU is way over what it should be!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't think this is good for my system. I really need a new PSU. I will try using another one I have laying around, but its the same type just a 400w instead of 480w =\\ (colors it) cheap crap.

cpu core supose to be 1.75 is at 1.81
+12v is hovering around 13.5 (it almost hit 14 and then dropped down to below 13.4 yikes)
+2.5 at 2.5
+3.3 at 3.45
+5 at 5.3
+5 standby 5.15

VCore over voltage is not that big a deal but your 12V rail is definitely too high and damaging your components is a possibility. Do you have access to a volt/multimeter? Software readings are notoriously off and I'd measure the voltage directly if I were you.

As for a replacement invest in a quality power supply, don't buy the generic crap.

1st question:

Have you reformatted since replacing the PSU?

2nd question:

What are you using to monitor voltages?

Its a newer case, it came with a PSU, I've been running it for about 2 months now and I've never bothered to check the volt's because I'm building a 939 piece by piece, Was going to use this PSU for a month or so before I could get a 24pin PSU but now I'll be waiting for a new PSU to run it.
I'm using the bios & everest software, I'll have to dig up my vmeter.

All of your rails are a little high except the 12volt which is way to high, you need to check it, also the next time you get a power supply, the 12volt rails are more important than wattage, 450 watt or better, but the 12volt rails should be 30amps or better for single 12volt and 18amps for dual 12volt. And most power supplys that come with cases are crap most of the time.
