I'm just wondering if there's a software that can monitor the voltages of a PSU? I can't rely on Speedfan since it doesn't report the right voltages of my PSU. Anyone pls let me know. Thx.

It seems that no one knows....:(

Software reads the hardware it is mostly dependent on if your motherboard reports the PSU voltages correctly.
Help the guy out at speed fan and send in your computer info.
Google computer hardware monitoring software, you will see a couple of free as in beer choices.
Sourceforge.net might also have something.

I'm guessing your MB is - Gigabyte GA-965P-S3?

The only utility for that MB is EasyTune5. Does that show voltages off the 12/5/3.3?

I was looking at what it shows (the guide), seems its just to OC the system, but didn't see any voltage values/reading on it.

If EasyTune5 does show voltage readings, are they the same or similar values as Speed Fan?

What I saw was here:

GA-965P-S3 -Support

EasyTune5-User Guide

Not sure what to say.

The reviewers way is to use a DVM to monitor voltages, I did that with mine and the mobo's are always off by about 10-30%. Nvidia is looking at creating software to monitor everything from PSU, watts going through your PCI-express cables, water pumps from water cooling systems.

Yes, my mobo is GA-965P-S3 and comes with EasyTune 5 software. It does shows voltages reading of 3.3 and 5 and CPU VCore A and VBat but it doesn't reports the same voltages as with speed fan. Just wonder which one is correct.
