Just installed a new power supply and I don't like the looks of the voltages

 

Thanks

Dick

I don't know much about power supplies and voltage levels, but, if say a power supply is not producing good voltages on the various lines, there is nothing you can do about it. All you can do is return it or buy a better one right?

Power supply is a brand new Thermotake 850W unit that was installed only an hour before the readings were taken. It's been load tested so I'm doubting that it is the problem. Thinking more in terms of motherboard or CPU

Have you verified those voltages with a multi-meter when the computer is on and running? I doubt the machine would even run with voltages like that. It is possible the board is reporting incorrectly due to an incompatibility issue with the software (appears to be HWmonitor). You could try other software or measure with a multi-meter, personally I trust my meter.

 

If the meter is correct with the computer on and running, my best guess would be a software incompatibility of some sort. I can't imagine a pc running at all with voltages that far out of spec.


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
