PSU voltage read problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm using Everest to read the voltages, which show up as the same in BIOS

problem is, they're way off now...my PC rebooted randomly yesterday while I was on Yahoo

the readings were fine before, but now

3.3v ~2.8v
5v ~ 5.3v
12v ~13.3v

I checked the 5v and 12v with a multimeter on a molex connector and they're barely off 5v and 12v, so definately bad voltage reads there

but the 3.3v, is there somewhere I can check that? I assume from the 24-pin PSU connector, but what about on the motherboard?

yah, I just found this page ...checked it on the SATA connector, reads 3.3v

and now my Everest readings are back to normal...3.3v is still only 3.1v, but at least I know it's false readings

funny how I find the page only after I post the thread
