    it is my experience the software read voltages are pretty accurate.

    I see a lot of motherboards and I've yet to see motherboard readings that match the voltages at the connector as taken with a DMM.

    So I have to ask since you just told two people they were wrong and then get upset when someone tells you that you are wrong, what exactly is the Digerati approved method for telling Digerati that he is wrong or doesn't know what he is talking about again?

    But how far off are they?

    I've got my DVM on a +12V connector right now and see +11.90. As seen below, HWMonitor shows 12.024V. That's hardly a difference worth worrying about. While clearly the 8.1V is WAY OFF and should not considered the actual voltage.



    @Spectre - I did not tell two people they were wrong. I said, and you quoted me, that I agreed with ehume. So here you are again, making up stuff and adding yet another post just to criticize another, adding nothing to the topic discussion.

    If you want to show where I am wrong (and certainly I am more often than I would care to admit - so I make every effort to not be) show us! Provide links to real sources to corroborate your side instead of expecting other to simply believe you, or by making stuff up, as you did here, and in the Andyson thread and as you are still doing in that thread. Now you are twisting around your own words with nonsensical BS about #1 retiring. Being #1 does not make you "good".

    I will not respond to you again.

    So.... how do you tell if the power supply is way off, then? Remember, your average computer *won't* blow up on 14-ish volts, so it's quite possible that a failing power supply could be outputting that...

    Check with the multimeter of course.

    The software will give you a random number, which doesn't say anything at all. But because you have a multimeter, you can check you much your software reading was off. That makes the software reading you did first very useful, right? Or maybe not?

    Not here, anyway. I'm tired of fielding complaints about your confrontational posts. We're done for good.
