How to measure chipset voltage with Multimeter??

Recommended Posts

Just like the title says. I need to know how to measure the actual voltage going

to the chipset with a multimeter. I have to run 1.8v to the chipset for the system

to be stable:mad: which seems higher than most people run so it was suggested that I

make sure the chipset is actually getting the 1.8v that I have set it to in the BIOS.

Unfortuantely I have never had to do this before and don't know my board well

enough to know where to start :confused:

 

Can someone come to my rescue:)

 

Thanks in advance!

You need to test the voltages through the molex 4pin or 24pin connector. Try using the search feature on this forum ;-)

You won't actually be able to single out the chipset, so use the bios number and apply a variable, say 10%, that's about as accurate as you'll get.

My voltages are fine from my psu. I followed the guide in the forum to measure

them under load(which was really helpful BTW:))

Awesome! :shake: Thanks OceanSeasforMe :angel: that's exactly what I

was looking for. Hopefully the strange way my board has been acting isn't SDS at

work! :eek:

 

Thanks!!!
