Are these PSU voltages normal?

Hi all,

I'm been having some BSOD problems with Windows XP on a new build with a Asus A8N-E motherboard. Windows seems to think it's a problem with the graphics card driver. I'm running the latest ATI driver, though.

I've checked the PSU voltages with SpeedFan and this is what they are:

Vcore1: 1.41V
Vcore2: 0.00V
+3.3V: 3.33V
+5V: 4.97V
+12V: 11.78V
-12V: -1.66V
-5V: -8.78V
+5V: 4.89V
Vbat: 3.07V

Should I be concerned about these voltages, in particular the -12V and -5V readings?

Thanks in advance,

If these readings were true, I would suspect you had very serious problems - so I don't think they are true.

Look in the BIOS and see what it says

the - volts are nothing to worry about. + volts are what you need.

This one looks out of tolerance +3.3V: 3.33V

I wouldn't think + .03V is out of tolerance - my own system, for instance, is currently displaying +3.36V.

What, 1% is out of tolerance? - I think not!
