Another free option to Speedfan,

HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools

can display reading s in either the tray or in a gadget. If you try it and want to use the gadget have to go with the 32 bit version at the moment as there is a bug in the 64 bit that the readings won't show in the gadget, but works fine in the 32 bit version.

I've never been too concerned about SF's inaccuracy, as long as I knew that it was SF and not my computer. If one has an accurate reference, they can calibrate SF to that for a proper reading. If not, it still serves as a means of detecting a change from whatever is it's "normal" reading. On something like -12v or - 5v I just disable then altogether. Despite it's faults, it is still a compact and handy means of monitoring most everything. It's biggest flaw is that it takes so much CPU and time on boot, that it slows things down noticeably.

What are Vin 3 & Vin 4...are those the +5 voltages? If they are, then both of them appear lower than normal.

I know we're throwing programs at you, but d/l the OCCT beta, and just start the program. You don't have to stress test, but just opening will start the monitoring, and it will display the 5v (as well as 12v, 3.3v, etc.). You can of course run the PSU test to monitor those voltages under load, over time.

It will save images in the My Documents in a OCCT folder. Here is an example of my 5v image:

That is an interesting program, but it appears to be more for stress testing components, rather than acting as a continuous monitor. Outside of the fact that it is missing the +5vsb reading, like most of the other programs that I have tried today, the rest of the values seems to agree with SF, and that in itself is a help.

Yes, OCCT is a stress testing program. But the Beta has real time voltage monitoring graphs, and if you run the tests it monitors and saves the various paramiters as images. Most programs don't list the standby voltage, as it really doesn't have much to do with the operation of the PC. I wouldn't worry about the standby 5v at all. A Guy

I'm not much impressed with AIDA64...not so much because of the program itself, but it installed Google Chrome, without asking me. Even after I uninstalled it, it left the Google Updater Service behind, and when I tried to disable it in the services tab of msconfig, it reenabled itself as soon as I selected the apply button.

I then tried disabling it in the main services window of Computer Management, and it popped a window saying that access is denied. I have the firewall blocking it, but how do I kill it?

Just a shot...go to the .exe, take ownership, and then try to delete it.

It was no problem deleting the .exe, I didn't even have to take ownership of it, but the service remains stubborn.
