vdimm and rail, 2 multimeter diffrent #


Recommended Posts

i bought a 3 dollar multimeter on ebay and borrowed my cousins radioshack pocket size multimeter, when i check the rail, both show diff #.

$3.00 multimeter

3.3v = 3.6v

5.0v = 5.18

12.0 = 12.22

 

radioshack pocket size

3.3v = 3.590v

5.0v = 5.11

12.0 = 12.18

 

which one should i trust?

also the vdimm was set to 3.4 but on bios it was 3.31 not 3.4 any idea?

 

-is it ok to have 5v = 5.05 idle & 12v= 12.10 idle when o/c or should i set it to 5.0 and 12.0 idle

Hmmm- buy a Fluke and see which one comes closest!

 

jk- I would trust the radio shack one. You have no idea the specification that the ebay one was built to.

Not sure that I understand what you are saying. If you are saying that you set the vdimm to 3.4, but the bios was showing 3.31, that's fairly normal. Neither the vdimm you set it at or what the bios reads are all that accurate. Again, a decent DMM is the only way to know what it is really at.

 

-is it ok to have 5v = 5.05 idle & 12v= 12.10 idle when o/c or should i set it to 5.0 and 12.0 idle

 

It's OK either way- the specs should be within about 10%.
