Could you check my voltages?

I took this pic and was wondering if there was anything I should be worried about? Is this O.K.? I'm not too sure what to make of it. All I know is that my 12V seems to fluctuate a lot more than the others.

Never trust software, but if they're correct, the voltages are perfect.

down to 11.4v is within specs, 5%.

but if 11.9 is correct then i doubt its anything to worry about.

my old amd32 ran fine with 11.79 and my current is running at around 11.9.

not a bad idea but should be done carefully so no short curcuit occur and to get the most accurate result have something like 3dmark05 running to get maximum load on the psu.

Hehe, to apply load to my whole PC I usually start SP2004 & ATi Tool Artifact Scanner... and oh man does my 12v rail take a plunge . (Goes from about 12.31v totally idle to about 12.02v system completely loaded.)

That was before I added a pump, and lighting to my pc. I think it's time to open up teh PSU again and crank up that pot.

Heh, my ASUS board sucks at checking the 12v rail. Tested 2 fairly decent quality PSUs (Liberty 500w and TruePowerII 430W) and they both register at 11.8 or so. And you inquired about the PC Probe in Kemp's project thread, that's the plain PC Probe. If you want that smallish thing, get PC Probe II
