  1. I have an Enermax PSU 350w ( EG365AX-VE (W) FCA ) & the 5v line seems to be a bit low. It's constantly at 4.8/4.9.

    I don't have any stability problems but I'm just curious why it would run so low & if that could be a problem in the long run. The PSU is about 4 months old.

    I have 3 HHDs ( 2 at the moment ), a burner, DVD Drive, Radeon 8500 & a AthlonXP 2000+.


    PS. The VCore is really at 1.75 ( says the BIOS ) but all the programs running on Windows see it at 1.85.

    Most of the stuff usually have voltage tolerance of ±10%, so if things are running stable, don't worry.
