Asus Suite II scary voltage warnings.

Hello,
I have the Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard and I read up the known problems of how they conflict with other programs that read temperatures and such.

I decided to download HWMonitor because I got really paranoid with the voltage warnings and I had uninstalled my trial version of Aida64 that was also known to conflict with Asus.

So everything seemed fine and I went to bed and when I woke up I saw I had the warning message from Asus again and I decided to check HWMonitor and they showed me a dip in voltages that I'm pretty sure aren't normal.

These are the minimum that they had fallen too:
+12V = 1.339 V
+5V = 0.526 V
CPU VCORE = 1.260 v
VIN3 = 0.296 V
VIN4 = 0.804 V
+3.3V = 3.132 V
VIN6 = 0.360 V
VIN7 = 2.832 V
VIN8 = 1.644 v


And these are the maxed they've reached:
+12V = 12.210 V
+5V = 5.321 V
CPU VCORE = 2.820 v
VIN3 = 1.776 V
VIN4 = 2.820 V
+3.3V = 3.132 V
VIN6 = 2.832 V
VIN7 = 2.832 V
VIN8 = 2.820 v

Any suggestion would be appreciated or even some reassurance that everything is okay.

Thanks in advance!

  1. That's perfectly normal with ASUS Suite II. My Maximus V Formula did the same thing. Nothing to be worried about.

    Thanks for replying so quickly, Stickg1!

    So those voltages are normal, even the ones that dropped really low?

    I appreciate your reassurance. Nothing more worrying than wrong voltages surging through my motherboard.
  3. I never really liked ASUS Suite II unless I'm using it for on the fly frequency/voltage changes in the OS. Or for calibrating your case fans.

    I typically disable monitoring so I don't get those notifications. Use HWinfo64 if you want better/more accurate readings.

    Yeah, I've read that it's not the most favourable monitor to use. But those readings that I had posted was from CPUID HWMonitor.
