Thanks Mat Alan,

hopefully here is my screenshot: click here

Sorry about the size and quality of this pic i dont claim to be any kind of expert at this !

My concerns are well all of it really, temps, voltages, speeds - bearing in mind i know next to nothing about these things but i think my PSU is seriously underperforming and everything else is overheating. This screenshot was taken about 20 minutes after i switched on PC and i have only been on internet to download mobo monitor.

Am i right to be concerned ?

Any advice on how to remedy ?

Forget about the monitor for a moment and go into your BIOS, look for the Hardware Monitoring section and see what it reports in there. Check out the manual for your motherboard, page 33. click here

Bios Hardware Monitor Results:

CPU: 1.552V

DDR: 2.592V

CPU Fan: 5443RPM

CPU Temp: 57C

Who do i believe mobo monitor or bios ?

Why is one of them so far off the mark ?

Are the results ok ?

They all use the same sensors should readings should be roughly the same
