PSU related - what does -5V reading tell you



New Member

just wondering what does -5V from PSU (Epox USDM) reading tell you

mine is rather high at
-5v @ -5.350 ~ 5.4

mind you other readings are all fine:
+5V @ 4.919 (max deviation)
+12V @ 12.464 (max dev.)

this readings are CPU FULL LOAD (Prime Torture test)
1700xp TbredB @ 2100Mhz (200Mhz FSB) 1.8V

PSU is Enermax 365 (350W) -5v....1A (looks fairly unimportant I know :) )

I don't think the -5v line is as important as the +12v, +5v, and +3.3v lines. If you are running stable, then I would not worry too much. It could be you are pushing the PS too much, but I don't think so.

Thanks Todd a just what I wanted to hear some reasurence

now back to OCing that TbredB hopefully can get a bit more Mhz out of it :), though I am plenty happy as is allready
