I have a modxstream pro 500w. The readings of the voltages were fine but when I had to change the mobo to a gigabyte 78lmt-s2p the reading are like this



In the bios I read this
vcore 1.35
ddr3 1.5v 1.47
+12v 12.24
+3.3v 3.47

I think the programs read the voltages the wrong way but I´m confused, everything is working properly even under a short time of prime95 just to checks the temps. help please :??:

Nothing wrong with your readings. You're allowed +/- .5%, and some generic hardware monitor programs may be off a little; I check the motherboard bios readings which are often more accurate.

I don't think the HWMonitor voltages are right they look really whacked out to me plus the AID readings are completely different,
I would trust the bios if things are runninng right and your bench marks cause no errors, you might try uninstalling your apps and re-install make sure it's the latest version also maybe try some different apps, you could hook you PSU to a different board if you have access to one and get a reading the only other thing is get a PSU tester. And most importantly keep a close eye on things, I understand,that would bug me too :sol:

thanks for the replies, i noted that the readings aren´t fluctuating so it might be a software error or something, if the bios readings are ok i don´t have to worry then?

That's correct. My old 12v rail reading was 11.73 in the bios; ran my ps that way for years before even trying the hardware monitor software. My asus board has some accurate software that matches the bios dead on, but I don't use it. You might try searching your board manufacturer's website for some utility programs that monitor voltages, unless it's oem (hp, dell, etc).
