Antec Phantom 500W: Low rail voltage? Tags: Power Supplies Asus Antec Crucial Components Last response: January 10, 2008 2:16 PM in Components Share fiedes January 9, 2008 5:44:22 PM Hey there Recently I assembled myself a completely new system: E6750 Duo Core 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC6400 Asus Maximus Formula ASUS EN880GTS 512MB Antec Phantom 500W PSU The thing is, after installing Everest, my rail voltages seem rather low: 5V is 4,94, 3V is 3,21 and 12V is 11,76. This isn't really that much but I've been having quite a bit of problems with this setup without finding a reasonable culprit. I'm now looking into if it could be the PSU, so any help is appreciated. By the way, I'm completely clueless when it comes to anything regarding a PSU, so please bear with me Thanks in advance!

Using a Digital Volt Meter would give more accurate voltage readings. Onus a c 122 ) Power supply a b Ĉ ASUS January 9, 2008 6:14:17 PM I'll second using a more accurate means to test voltage. Invest $13 or so in a PSU tester. Still, those voltages appear to be within tolerance.

But if you don't find it alarming I'll try solving my problem another way In short I've been having problems with both my RAM giving errors (probably bad), also not being able to install a certain PCI WiFi card. It's probably my mainboard then bob8701 January 10, 2008 2:16:09 PM go get a dmm to measure the voltage, the software measurement is base on the sensor reading, it could be off Can't find your answer ?
