Obviously it's defective. Ship it to my address at...


Kidding aside, it's fine. Never trust software or the BIOS to monitor your PSU rails. Get a multimeter (they are cheaper these days) and do it yourself.

Yup, software readings are bogus. If those voltages were correct your computer would not be running

thats the image of hw monitor.

took all cooling off computer psu and put on separate psu. getting exact same readings.

so it's nothing to worry about?

That's right, nothing to worry about. Though I noticed your CPU voltage is at 1.46v. Are you trying for a high overclock?

If you want to see what the voltages really are and if it is or isnt something to worry about, use a multimeter and test the PSU for yourself (like mentioned above). That's the best way to get the right voltage readings.

yea basically what these guys are saying never trust software to read your PSU, only trust an o-scope or DMM.
