    Default PSU problems i think

    I think im having PSU problems, ive got speedfan currently on, and im getting huge differences in the Voltage... Now i think its just Speedfan acting up on my but im not sure. Are there any other software out there that can monitor Voltage...
    My PSU is a Thermaltake 800w Sli & Crossfire ready.. This isnt some cheap PSU it cost me $150.
    This is what i mean....

    Vcore1: 1.34 -12v: -5.70
    Vcore2: 2.67 -5v : -3.55
    +3.3v : 3.38 +5v : 3.17
    +5v : 3.45-4.98 (it does this every 5 seconds) Vbat: 4.08
    +12v : 11.90

    Now im an apperenties electrican and this isnt possible, there is more going in than there is out so somthink has f$%ked up

    I mean look at my Vcore2 it would be fried in a matter of seconds

    Never ever ever trust ANY software, including the motherboard's bios for accurate voltage readings on a power supply. Get a digital multimeter and test the rails out.

    could just be a faulty PSU?
    i came across a similar problem with my psu, it was giving reads way below what they should of been. Took it back and got a replacement and all good
