Default Speedfan Readings

Hi folks, long time no see

I've just got a quickie about Speedfan and the readings it gives, in particular the voltages. Now, with the readings I'm seeing, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to type this message on this system, so they almost certainly can't be right. But it is still concerning, nonetheless.

The reason I even took any notice of them was that my system is constantly rebooting and I just wanted to know if there's a more accurate way of reading them without having to break out the multimeter and trying to remember how to read the voltages that way. [/lazy]

Anyway, here's a screenie:



Any thoughts?

Also, ignore the Temp3 reading. Every piece of information I've found points to this being an unused sensor. There is nothing in my computer that I cannot physically touch.

Speedfan isn't that great of a program. Try using RealTemp or Everest.

RealTemp tells me my CPU isn't supported and I can only find the 12v reading in Everest. The 5v, -5v and -12v don't seem to be there.

I never really liked speedfan either. I use HWMonitor, see if it works for you.
