Fluctuation in voltage reading...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I got this used 400W Acbel PSU with active PFC and got it installed. When I run CPU-Z 1.31, the voltage reading still fluctuates. The lowest reading I got was 1.441v and the highest is around 1.471v. Is there something wrong?

Not really because all software based readings fluctuate.
I'm running an Antec TruePower 2.0 psu which ppl consider to be quite stable and still I experience vcore fluctuations when viewing through cpu-z.
Your best bet is to get a multimeter and manually check the 12V rail for stability by connecting the multimeter to the yellow and black cable of a 4-pin molex connector.
