    And your point is?
    Why don't you post the motherboard, or other specifics?

    My only interest is with the PSU output and whether people think the values are acceptable, especially the -12v and -5v rails. Apparently I can ignore them - unless someone here has a different opinion?

    You should not ignore them. the 12v @ 11.25 is below the acceptable +/- 5% standard that puts the low @ 11.4v.Thesame for the 5v rail.I would check this against the voltage readouts in your BIOS and another software program like HWmonitor, and a multimeter if you have access to one. if you confirm that your voltages are low, then replace the PSU. under-volting is as damaging as over-volting.

    ....why do I feel like I'm saying this to someone who already knows all this?? :)

    one thing I forgot to mention. i assume that that was taken at idle. If your PSU caps are deteriorated, it is most likely going much lower when you load it up. You are probably over the 500mv of ripple as well.

    No I don't know all this but try and apply a little common sense when I remember to engage the brain!
    The Everest test was taken under running load but I also took a test with an Antec tester which showed that it was OK - ie; no load.
    This PSU is in a 4 year old ASUS Micro system so is probably suffering from constant hot running anyway so perhaps worth a replacement - in short I would be prepared to condemn the whole shooting match!
