This is under idle conditions... I have just never paid a great deal of attention to voltages, and have become aware that this is something I should learn a little about. The system is a A64 3200+ and a K8N Neo2 platinum mobo.

+3.3 ---> 3.07 (avg)
+5.00 ---> 4.98 (avg)
+12.00 ---> 12.66 (avg)

3.3v looks a little too low (below what I'd consider good for system stability).

I am using MBM5 to monitor. Is there anything I can do to raise that voltage... I am at work right now so I can't look at it, but I don't think I have an option in my BIOS to raise the 3.3V?? I really hope that doesn't mean I should get a new PSU. I don't think I will for right now, as I haven't noticed any problems (knock on wood). I will take a more indepth look tonight and see if the voltage is fluctuating alot.

there is no setting to raise the voltage, either the readings are wrong or they are right and you will need a new psu. if your system is stable i wouldnt worry about it.

this is my boomstick!

On my two systems, MBM5 is only correct on 3 out of the 6 voltage reading that I get. The 3.3 in one of my systems is actually listed under a different voltage. What brand PSU do you have? See what your readings are in your BIOS.

Noob question: Is MBM5 freeware that I could download? I've been looking for a PSU monitoring software package that I could use.
 
I use Hardware Monitor a.k.a HMonitor.

See if both readings are the same
