    Hi all Guru's

    I am a little confused, if my psu + 12V voltage is still reasonable .., in the BIOS if the check its value 12 volts more (normal assumption), but in windows using HWinfo v5.54 precisely in the mobo voltage, the + 12V it The value is 8.880V .., is it normal with such a voltage value, I am afraid if psu is not good can spread to other components .. It's PSU result from RMA about 6 months ago ..

    No way that's reading correctly

    Test with a multimeter

    Multi meter is the only thing going to give you a proper reading.If it was either the 8 or 18 your computer wouldn't even be running it wouldn't even post.

    Power supply tester looks spot on.

    BIOS looks OK too, it's never going to be real accurate.

    Ignore the software readings.

    Absolutely but I bet when checking with a multi your 12v is sitting around 12.3 at idle if you really want to check.

    OK Agent.., Now it is clear, get rid of the readings from the application .., so I no longer need to worry .., thanks :)

    jb.., I have done it using analog multitester .., and the result is right sitting around 12v ... thanks :)

    Thank you all to everything for enlightenment ..
