Antec TrueControl 2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have the Antec TrueControl 2 PSU and does anyone know how to tell what you have the voltages at? Im talking about the 5.25' controller to change the +12v the +3.3v and +5v. How do you tell what you have them set at? The adjustment range is +-5% so would it be safe to run all of the voltages at half? To have normal voltages im guessing I just find the min position and the max position and put it in the middle right?

You'd have to have some kind of software to do this for you.

Give Everest Home Edition a shot. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

If I remember right it has voltage sensors in the program.

The best way to calibrate that PSU (and to measure any PSU in general) is to use a multimeter. I don't recall which combinations of wires measure which rails off hand, but a quick search on here should yield that for you. The 12 volt and 5 volt rails can be measured from a spare molex connection, I believe, and I think there's a fairly simple way to measure the 3.3 volt rail.

I have the same PSU and I find that adjusting the settings doesn't really put the PSU in danger (I've done it a lot, pushed the +12v rail to max during games, and then dropping them down to minimum when I go to bed, doesn't seem to hurt the PSU at all.
