Just checking my temp in the bios earlier I was wondering what the safe ranges for the different voltages are?Anyone know?
Why are you thinking of overclocking your comp
No not at all just interested and making sure everything is as it should be
They set themselves automatically, to the correct volts. You only change these if you want to overclock but it can cause overheating that's why they then have to employ better cooling of CPU etc.
Thanks. The +12v is usually around 11.61 is this ok or are they supposed to be exactly 12
Yes it's OK they work on a tolerance value percentage plus or minus volts. If your comp is working OK then I should not worry
PS the one to watch is the 5 Volts line this should not deviate too much
The reason this all came about was this:I bought a new graphics card and as the original PSU was only 300w I bought a 500w one. I have noticed that the CPU is running a hotter since the 550w PSU has been in.Just out of interest, I put the original back in today and the cpu temp has gone back down to what it used to be.The voltages with the 300w are a touch down as to when the 550w is in. Don't know which one to use now!Any advice appreciated
The 550 may be out of specification, producing too high volts. this happens on cheap and sometimes dear PSU's
So do you think I would be better off sticking with the original 300w one?
Just checked my own VCC 5.0v is 5.05vVCC 12.00 is 12.86vsystem temp 35ccpu 47cwhat is the cpu temp in yours
