Strange Voltage Readings in HWM

Okay so I hadn't noticed this before, but when looking at CPUID HardwareMonitor I noticed something rather strange in the voltage readings. The 12+V was being shown as only having 7V, however when I double-checked using the Intel Desktop Utility, it showed the normal 12V reading.



I've been reading that checking voltages with software really isn't the best way to go about checking this sort of thing, nor is it really accurate at times, but I was just more curious as to if anyone has had similar problems with HWM, or if I should be concerned about this error in the readings.

Current rig:
  1. Intel DZ68BC Motherboard
  2. Intel Core i7-2600k 3.4GHz
  3. HIS Radeon HD 6950 Turbo 2GB GDDR5
  4. Corsair 800W GS800 Gaming PSU
  5. 8GB G.Skill RipJaw Gaming Series 1600 DDR3 RAM

Looks like it may just be CPUID HWMonitor at this point. HWInfo(64-bit) is showing perfectly normal voltages, the same as the Intel Desktop Utility. I've had several other problems with HWMonitor giving inaccurate readings before with temperatures.

maybe just hwmonitor could not read correctly that board now you got another program you could use

Yeah that seems to be the case. A couple of updated programs I downloaded are getting correct voltage readings. Thanks for the help!
