My spec is on my sig. On HWMonitor, the -12V voltage is at -6.27 while the +12V voltage is at 12.86v. On my other PC, the -12V is always at ~ -12v. Is there something wrong with my mobo or psu?

are you experiencing trouble ? or did you just notice it and said Hmmmm

Alot of 3rd party sofware monitors get a wierd pll every now and then......the thing I dont like is cpuz's hw monitor is telling you that.

scour the internet for other monitoring programs and see if its real or conflicting

I would tell you what mine says if you guys would walk me through a win 7 install on my post but I think the asus crosshair IV is bad anyway I need install hanging help

good luck

The -12v rail doesn't actually exist, in fact if it did it would be in violation of the design spec, so that's just a filler reading. Don't pay it any mind.

Yea, software voltage indicators are extremely innacurate...they can read essentially anything...so basically dont base anything off of them because theyll make your life very difficult...If u want to check your 12V or 5V rail use a molex and a digital multimeter....yellow is 12V+, black is ground and Red is 5V+

These are my beautiful software rendered voltages....

HWmonitor reports my -12v anywhere from -9 to ~-11. As the others have said, any of the readings within software voltage monitoring can be innacurate depending on the software used and the hardware it is monitoring.
