Does this mean my power supply isn't giving enough power?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Good day to everyone,

Here are the results in the red box.



I'm actually going to buy a new power supply at the end of this month. Since I overclock I need a reliable power supply but before that I just want to know some answers from the picture above I posted. Just for preference.

Is the 3.3 suppose to be exactly on 3.3 or higher? Since mine is below which means it doesn't give consistent power?

Forgive me I'm not good at power supplies but learning about everything slowly. I recently overclocked my system to so maybe that's why I had to bump my core more than 1.3 when other people can get 3.2Ghz with only 1.3 flat.

Thank you.

Additional Information:

+3.3V - 30A
+5 - 28A
+12(1) - 14A
+12(2) - 15A
-12 - 0.3A
+5VSB - 2A

No, you're fine. Slight differences are normal.

EDIT: Those 12v rails however, are rather poor.. 15A is usually insufficient for a lot of things

Software sensors are notoriously unreliable. You have no idea what your PSU is really outputting unless you get a multimeter.

Basically this. Ignore it. If your pc runs fine, you'll be fine.

Even assuming the sensors are correct, all of those readings are in spec.

Except... There's no such thing as "3.3V Standby". +5V stand by (+5VSB), yes, but there has never in the history of computing been a 3.3V standby rail.
