ASUS Probe warning 'Low 3.3v'

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Should I be worried? CPU-Z is reporting it at 2.5v as well confused.gif

My PSU is quite hot, Could be the culprit?

You cannot trust software-based voltage monitoring, ever. If your +3.3V was at 2.5V, your computer would not be running at all.
If you want to check your voltages, use a digital multimeter.

Jeantech is one of those off-brands, also called "gutless wonders". The voltages may be reading wrong, but if it's running hot, I would keep a close eye on it.

2.5v? Your 3.3v devices should have stopped working o_o
That's pretty damn low.

Yeah, Jeantech's 1000W PSU appears to be one of those crappy dual fan PSUs with really high ampere "ratings" on the 3.3v and 5v rails
