Aspire 500W voltage

Just got it and voltage on the 12v is low on idle (11.4) and high on lead (12.4). 3.3v is normal and 5v is is high (5.4).

Is there anything to worry about with the weird voltages? Fry's doesnt carry the Antech turepower series. So I opted for this because it has 34amps on the 12V rail and 30 on the 3.3V and 5V

  1. I wouldn't have bothered with a True Power anyway since a Fortron Source has more power for less money. As for the Aspire, I don't own any, but those voltages don't freighten me. I prefer all my voltages to be just a tad high, for stability reasons.

    Newegg, as much as I like them and all, do edit the user reviews and remove negative ones (as is their right)

  4. Depends on how you phrase it. if you sound like a whiney little 12 year old, and jsut go off on a company, rather than stating your problems, then yes. But Seen lots of succinctly put negative reviews, heck, have put up more than one myself.
