View Full Version : Voltage problems?
08-15-2005, 09:36 AM
I have logged all voltage activity when playing the F.E.A.R .DEMO and this is what I got out of it:
Last readout: 3,22
Last readout: 4,73
Last readout: 12,10
Last readout: 1,63
Are these levels normal or are they too low?

Personally i'd say those voltages are bordering on the minimum of acceptable as a rule of thumb you should be ok if they stay around 5%(+or-) with allowance for a little fluctuation.
12v+5%=12.6v(though still a lil high unless your oc'ing)
Your motherboard readouts are never exact sometimes very unreliable hence your mobo is recording the 3.3v rail at 3.17v when the exact reading may be alot less :thumbdown:
I'd suggest buying a better brand/wattage/specification psu you can't go wrong with a Tagen,Enermax or OCZ Powerstream with adjustable rails (http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/power_management/ocz_powerstream_power_supply#prices) :francesco:
Also to record the exact volt readings buy a cheapish multi meter like this digital muli meter $24.99 (http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/product.do?BV_SessionID=@@@@1516804108.1124114556@ @@@&BV_EngineID=cckkaddfhdldgemcegecegjdghldghf.0&pid=03482146000&vertical=TOOL)
