View Full Version : 5v line @5.69v!

Recently I put together an Athlon XP system and opted for the following inexpensive case and power supply:
The case is OK, but I am truly surprised to see the associated power supply giving 5.69v in an overclocked system (10.5@150), and totally stable.
Now I certainly can't say that all of these cases ship with the same 400w power supply.
Just thought I would mention it!

WOW, thats alot to the point of possibly being dangerous for your system. You may want to look inside the PSU to see if it has pots to adjust the voltage, may want to turn it down abit.
yeah that is a little high what is your 12volt at under load?

I think 12v is around 12.1
That and the 5v @5.69 are on the boot screen. I haven't checked to see the voltages under load.
It's been running nonstop for over a week.
I have not opened the PS, so I do not know if it does have a pot.
Not one crash.

Ok, I just installed MBM 5.02
The readings with MBM idle/load (seti) are:
Nothing to get excited about I suppose. I have no idea why there would be such a difference between the motherboard reading on boot and MBM!

my 5v line varies from 5.2 --> 5.4 ish...
you usually can take into account voltages of fans and hard drives they are spinning all the time and after a certain point you set them to spin down (turn off) this means less current is being taken so you may have a higher 5v line.... just a thought its not entirely correct but my 2 cents....
Those seem to be good under load. If the psu could supply anywhere near that under load I would be worried however that is not the case. I would believe your are good to go. If in fact you were getting5.3-5.4 or so under load then I would check to see if it had a pot that I could adjust.
