So I have recently put together this rig, (e6750 (not overclocked), 680i, 8800, fan,
And I'm getting concerning/conflicting readings from PC Wizard 2008 and Speedfan. I know the PSU is cheap, but it had good reviews, so i thought it was fine. When I got it and was setting it up, I realized it had only one 4-pin cord to go in the 8-pin 12v slot on the mobo. So I got this adapter.
Well the problem with the volts seems to be a combination of a software failure and an under performing PSU. PC wizard gives these volt readings:
+3.3V Voltage : 11.14 V
+5V Voltage : 4.73 V
+12V Voltage : 11.14 V
Obviously it's reading the +12v voltage as both the 3.3v and the 12v. That's what i think is a software issue. The main problem is the fact that the +12v voltage is so low. The +5v is also a little off, but i don't think thats too bad. Is this something I should be concerned about? Am I going to have to buy a new PSU?
The second problem is that speedfan is saying my CPU temps are averaging 42c on idle, and 55c+ under full load. Thats too high for sure, and it might be because I put to much thermal grease on the HS. However, PC Wizard gives my CPU 32c on idle and, well, 32 on full load :/ . So which one do I believe? I'd like to believe pc wizard.. but I don't, cause the temp never changes, from full load to none. And the temp for speedfan changes really fast, like 3 seconds to go up 10c.
Also, on a sidenote, how do you check your framerate in a game (like the crysis demo)?
