this being my second rig, i have a personal problem with my crappy rig's voltages being better than my good rig. this one has an allied 300watt psu, and i am getting 4.99 volts on my +5 line full load. my temps are also a bit high, and this thing is noisy as all hell. but i am getting an ax7 next week anyways. but anyways after i am done ranting i will get to my point.
my brand new enermax 431 watt true power psu has a +5 of 4.89v full load. i only have two hdd's, one cdrw, and one DVD and one floppy (none being used at the moment). I also have 1 120mm (7v) fan and two 80mm fans.

then on my vrxp i have 2 enermax 80mm adjustable fans, and one tt smart fan II for the HSF a CDRW, a HDD and a floppy (none being accessed). i am not sure if i configured mbm5 wrong or what, but i would rather have a higer five volt line on my good rig.:confused:
thanks

The +5 does seem a little low, I have an Enermax 431watt and I get 4.93 at load and 4.94 idle. Try slapping a multimeter on to it and see what it gives you, that'll be your most accurate reading, I'd believe it before any software monitoring.

My 5v line runs 4.82v's right now on full load with a 250w PSU. Also, the 7VRX(P) has been known to read volts wrong anyways, so I would do as mentioned above and check with a volt meater, much more accurate.
