Should It Be Like This?

Recommended Posts

guys, is this normal?

 

+3.3v @ 3.34

+5v @ 5.13

+12v @ 12.80

-12v @ -8.66

-5v @ -8.78

+5v @ 4.97

vbat @ 3.15

 

taken from speedfan 4.37 on idle

 

 

the one i'm asking about is the -12v and also the -5v

Firstly, it's a software reading, so I would be inclined to simply ignore it.

 

What power supply do you have, and what is it powering?

 

I'm assuming you don't have any other problems and are just concerned with the readings?

I would also it assume it is wrong, it is a software reading, I have had Speedfan tell me my HDD was running at 250C, in which case.... Uh oh. *runs*

 

Can we see some more information on your rig?

i've seen other site posting their reviews on PSU showing the -12v and -5 are within -+5% so i'm quite concerned about it since this is way out of the range. don't have any problems YET try to stay out of it XD

Are the reviews you are looking at also using Speedfan to measure their voltages?

I'm guessing not.

 

Testing the outputs of a PSU is quite an involved process, and you need certain equipment to do it properly. Even a multimeter isn't all that helpful.

If your system is running fine then I wouldn't worry about it at all. :)
