Recently , I've replaced the capacitors from the generic PSU . Then I started to use this PSU normaly on my PC since about a month ago .
So , yesterday , I use that program to check the voltage and tensions of the PC . And I think the results are not maybe good ?

I don't have any kind of problem about heat , weird noise comingo from HDD or lock and freeze since I've changed the capacitors psu . The PC seems to work like a charm so far here .

But , wich kind of consequences can I expect on long term , using the PSU with such a +12v marking around 13.25 and peeks nearly of 13.50 :ouch: ?

Can I a run a risk to "fry" my mobo or HDD ?

Configuration Hardware :

AThlon xp 2200
K7vta3 v3.3
1Gb DDR Kingston
128MB ATI Radeon video card
500GB sata Seagate 7200.12
400W generic PSU

Thanks for any kind of coment , and please pardon me about my bad english .

I do have only analog multimeter :heink: But , i will buy one soon as possible .


Thats what I thought . But if we had to choose one , wich is worst ? High out of spec or Low out of spec ? Wich damages can cause in each case ?


I checked the bios , and results were the almost the same .
Im also tested this PSU on another PC around here .

Anyway , thanks for the tips :hello
