    Re: unusual voltages

    Probably not - I've seen all sorts of odd readings for the negative voltages. I'd be more worried about the fact that your +12v rail is detecting at 1.02v. As long as your computer is acting normally, I shouldn't worry about it!

    Re: unusual voltages

    oh yeh good point!

    yeh computer is running fine, other than a weird thing where it never starts first time, i have to boot it then quickly turn power off/on at the psu then it boots, a problem which started occurring after tripped fuse in house and which i've zeroed in to a psu problem (my lovely new psu cooler master psu ). that's why i was worried about voltages.

    cheers though sounds like it's fine

    Re: unusual voltages

    Same as your temp3 is -2c speedfan only seems to work 100% with a very small range of hardware.
    I don't bother with it anymore it's just too flakey.
    According to speedfan my ambient temp is -128c I better go and put another jumper on.

    Re: unusual voltages

    My -12V is reading -8.8, but my -5V reads 4.05 (no "-"!). So I suggest just chilling as well
