Voltage readings off the scale

Hello,


I just bought a Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W. I understand that BIOS isn't the most accurate when it comes to reporting voltage. However, these are my readings at the moment. Nothing is running except Firefox.



11.968 +3.3v
5.041 +5v
3.335 +12v


I'm ok with the +5v reading but the readings for +12v and +3.3v are way off. I feel like something is not connected correctly on my motherboard. Note that I have no issues with any games I've playing. All the temps (CPU, motherboard etc) are within tolerance and the voltages are not fluctuating. Just concerned they are way off the safety ranges. Can someone please help? Thanks.

You know that looks exactly as if someone wrongly named the voltages in what ever software monitoring you're using? 11.968V = 12V, 3.335V = 3.3V, I see no issue. It's a simple naming error in where ever you're looking at the values.
If the PSU was putting 12V into 3.3V and vice versa, damn would you know instantly as some components would go instantly up in smoke and fire.

Get a multimeter and check the voltages, I bet you will find no issue at all.

My PSU puts out 12,26V on the 12V rail.
Sure its inside of the ATX specs, but I dont know whether I should be happy about it
Straight Power 11 450W.
