the only real accurate way is to get a multimetre to tell voltages but i think a better psu and i know u said u upgraded but i dont really see that as a good psu , all in all nice system and i get paranoid about my system failing so youre not alone
I will be changing my power supply! Thanks. I am going to try a different voltage reader tonight to see if that reads any different, I don't trust Core Center that much, not after it failed to detect my CPU fan was even spinning until I got a newer version installed.
I do actually have a digital multimeter but am not really up on how to use it properly!
It just frustrated me because I'm proud of how well this system runs, and how good the temperatures are etc, and I don't like the thought that something such as inadequate power is going to ruin things.
