  1. Asus' PC Probe software is almost always inaccurate. Double check in your BIOS or with 3rd party software before you worry about it.
  2. I agree. Asus PC Probe is not always the most accurate piece of software. Even Motherboard Monitor does not report my voltages correctly. My suggestion to you is to pick up a cheapo multimeter at RadioShack and test the voltages that way.
  3. I checked bios and voltage is high, around 13v...
    gonna try testing votages using multimeter later...
    anyway, what are the effects of 12v supply reaching 13v?
  4. dang, 13.1 volts...
    Should I change my PSU?
  5. STFU kid 13.1v is nearly perfect for the +12v line.

  6. 13V wont do any damage... it is still within 10% specs and even if it wasn't within spec 13V isn't going to damage anything.

    My CPU fan spins so fast that it creates a wormhole :eek:
