2.37 V on the +12V ?!?!

It's been down there for a while now, the curiosity finally overcame me. Couldn't find much on google about it, people were complaining about it being extremely low at 10V. I kind of figured it had to be a buggy reading, thought it would be impossible for a computer to function if it were correct.

This is a pretty old desktop and you can see all the values are low showing the PSU is past it's time, but 2.3V is just ridiculous.

Anyone got some input?

Yes it's incorrect and it wouldn't work if it were true.

That monitoring tool is unable to interpret the sensor chip signal output properly.

Use a better monitoring tool.

I have the same problem with HWM, VCORE seems to be the only accurate voltage.

Check the voltage on BIOS. All the monitoring tools(HWMonitor, OTCC, Speedfan, etc.) report between 8 to 10 V on the +12V in my computer, but the BIOS shows 11.9xx. This system has been running without problem for the past 6 months with heavy load.

On my ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard this is what I see on two different monitoring utilities:

HWMonitor PRO 1.13.0


AIDA64 Extreme Edition


The AIDA64 Extreme Edition voltage readings match exactly what the ASUS AI Suite II monitor tool reports.
