Rails Looking A Little High...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I dunno why, but all of my rails are runing a fair amount higher then their rated voltage. Should I worry about this? My rails never drop more than .2v though.

As far as the voltages go almost all of those look similar to my voltages on my asus except that +2.5 volts and the +1.8 volts. Oh yeah and I forbid myself to put my vcore up that high lol. I am not quite sure if any of those voltages will damage anything though.

These are SW reported voltages and are within Spec, that is <5% difference.

Use a multi-meter to check true voltages - under Idle and Load to see if there is an issue.

A PSU that is slightly high is better than low as most tend to drop a bit under load.

Hmm, I have yet to check the 1.8 out under load, but I'll see how stable it is. My processor requires a high Vcore, my stock Vcore is 1.6-1.62, Northwood C's need a high Vcore because of their 800MHz Bus, and HT. As for the multimeter, I'll see if I can find one in my garage. I've never used one on a PSU before, so could you guys give me a few pointers?
