12V rail at 12.67 while idle - Page 2

post #11 of 42
Thread Starter 
Yes I'm aware, but is this a immediately serious issue that could fry my computer? Enough that I should run over to the mall and demand they open the shop?

It's been running like this for a year if memory serves me correctly, something around 12.4-6 I remember seeing some months ago.

if has been that way for a year then it is probably fine. I wouldn't trust anything that is software.

If anyone would care about this though you probably won't it was I who diagnosed the fault while checking CPU temps in HWMonitor. That it's been running for a year like this is still not that bad, and I guess it's safer to have too much voltage than too little voltage. The voltages fluctuate a lot though, no matter where I get the reading. The BIOS reading is closer to 12V though. I guess what he should do is RMA the PSU now since the end of the 1 year NCIX warranty (to make up for the lack of any warranty from BFG) should be approaching fast now.

Ok, just because the software says it's out of spec, that only demands you go out and buy a digital multi-meter to get an accurate voltage. That software is reading inaccurate and uncalibrated board sensors, it has zero chance of being accurate.
It is unlikely to fry your machine, especially since you're running at stock speeds.
Go get a multimeter, and poke the probes into a handy and spare molex connector, that's the only way to get real accurate voltages.
If it's out of spec on the multi-meter, that's the time to do something about it.

Don't trust voltage metering software.

HWMonitor says my 3.3V rail is at 1.5V, but you hook a DMM and it is 3.35V.

NCIX told me they would take it in for testing themselves and replace it for me if it's defective. I guess there's no point in me getting a multimeter to test it myself, since they'd have to do it anyways.

Yeah there is a point, since if it isn't defective there's no point in taking it back. You can get a multimeter for $4.00 from Harbor Freight.

I live in Vancouver, and the closest shop is at least $10

If I tested it, and it showed bad voltages, NCIX would have to test it themselves anyways to confirm it before replacing it for me....
