    power supply voltages

    My 3.3v is running at 3.47 and my 12v is running at 11.49. Do I need a new power supply? Thanks!

    I dont think so buck, all motherboards have some tolerance, but the 3.47 *might* be a little high, do you have problems with the puter now? If not, the voltage is just fine!

    Generally the tolerance on most power supplies is +/- 5% on all outputs. So you could really expect your 3.3V output to be between 3.14 and 3.47V and your 12V could vary between 11.40 and 12.60V.

    I just installed motherboard monitor 4.12 and the average voltage is 3.46. The alarm kept coming on showing 3.47v and I have been getting lockups after about 5 minutes running any 3d game, and I'm really not sure which component is causing it. I am running a celeron 300a@504 at 2.0v along with a viper v770. I have a peltier cooler on the celeron, that is running on the 5v. Any suggestions?
