Weird PSU Voltage readings

  1. Hey, I purchased a new Antec NeoPower 550 PSU. I plugged it in and everything works great. I played Crysis (because I also purchased a 8800GT with it) for over 3hours with it. However, on PC Wizard it shows some wierd Voltage readings unless I'm mistakin.

    Voltage CPU - 1.68V
    3.3V - 2.04V
    +5V - 2.04V
    +12V - 6.55V

    I tried SpeedFan but it doesn't read them period. Wierd thing is, when I had my old PSU plugged in, it read the voltage ratings just fine. I'm guessing everything is fine, since i haven't experienced any sudden shut downs or BSODs, especially when gaming.

    I don't think the PC would even boot if those voltages were correct.

    You could check the BIOS to see what voltages are reported there.

    Yeh, those can't be correct, your drives wouldn't ever hit 7200rpm (or whatever their speed is) at those voltages.
     
  5. I get similar readings after about an hour or so of been on using CPUID yet my pc hasn't slowed down at all so i've not let it bother me. Once most of my voltages were 0.03,i think that would shutdown my pc

    Those voltages are false readings. Either you have the wrong version of CPUID or it is not compatible with your motherboards model
     
  7. I know the voltages are wrong that's why i don't let it bother me and it is the latest ver of CPUID.
