According to MBM 5 my five volt rail is running at 3.15 volts. For refrence my 3.3 rail is running at 3.3 and my 12 rail is running at 11.67. I just thought i would download mbm to check up on voltages and i see this. Of course this is the same program that tells my my case temperature is 70 C but my actual hardware thermal sensor tells me that it is 25.3 C so i dont really trust these readings. The reason im worried is that i plan to upgrade soon to a fairly high end athelon setup and am worried aobut this PSU being able to power it. What i really want to know, is this a real reading or is it impossible for a CPU to run with that weak of a 5 rail. If this is a real reading, or could possibly be a real reading, how much trouble will it cause running, say a 2500+ stock, how about overclocking?
