Quote:"I scoured the forum to see if there were similar complaints, but didn't see any, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I've listed my configuration below. When I power up, my system complains that the following voltages are off: Vcore Voltage, 3.3V Voltage, 5V Voltage, 12V Voltage. The last 3 items seem to be off by 33% (3.3V reports as 2.2V). I don't know what Vcore Voltage should be but it says something like 2.2V.
I've tried unplugging and plugging the power cords (both the 24-pin and 4-pin) back into the MB with no positive results. What I've currently done is turn off the monitoring of those voltages, but that makes me feel a bit uneasy.
So, what could be the problem? Is it my power supply? (I tested it with a tester I bought at TigerDirect, and everything seems okay, but it is only 450W). I also updated the BIOS just in case there was something wrong with their monitoring, but that didn't help. Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.
Configuration: P5N32-E SLI Plus 650i, Antec Smart Power 450W, Intel Core Duo E6600, Kingston HyperX 4 x 1GB PC2 6400, XFX GeForce 7600 256 MB, DVD and HD "
i read this post and was dissapointed that no1 replied as i have exactly the same issue with almost completely the same setup on my machine...
asus p5n32-e sli motherboard
nvidia 8500gt 512mb pci graphics card
bios updated to 1401
q6600 intel 2 quad core 2.40htz processor
Do the computers work?
If so, you have a monitoring problem.
Vcore voltage for both systems should be in the neighborhood of 1.2 volts.
If you have a multimeter, you can check all the outputs. Yellow wires should be 12 volts, red 5 volts, orange 3.3 volts, blue wire -12 volts, purple wire is the 5 volt standby. You can carefully check on the back of the main power connector.
and it works fine and boots up if i ignore the warnings at start....i can browse internet and watch vids and download....all easy stuff...
untill i play World of Warcraft and i get 5-10 mins and then the whole system locks up and i have to do a shutdown and restart as i can't even get ctrl+alt+del taskmanager to come up..
