Solved

My PC is showing low voltage all around while using prime95. What is wrong? BIOS shows right voltage.

The BIOS shows the voltages all right, for example, 12V is 11.8V 5V is 4.8V etc... but on Windows, HWMonitor is showing 12V as being 8V aproximately and so on.

What's wrong? I've updated the BIOS.

My Rig:

FX 6300
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz
WIndows 7 Home Premium
PSU: 500W generic
GTX 460

    What's wrong is HWMonitor. It's incorrectly interpreting the motherboard's sensor signals.

    Is there anyway to tell the psu temperature and how much power it's supplying?
  5. If you own a Corsair RMi Series or HXi Series or AXi Series power supply you can monitor those parameters.
