Windows 7: CPUid Hardware Monitor

CPUid Hardware Monitor

Hi there im new to the forum but not new on computers

I installed HWmonitor in order to check the voltage of my psu but the results i get are not even close.
I know that you will tell me that every messure program is not accurate but the question here is how do i know what should be the correct voltages so i check them in bios?

In bios i see VTT and other names that i don't know what should be their average number

My motherboard is gigabyte HA65m-ud3h-b3 and my psu is thermaltake 470 watt.

The power supply voltages should be near what they are, for example the -12V that is shown in your snapshot shows -3.84V. If it were that voltage most likely the PC would not be working. The monitor for my PC only shows a +12V, no -12V.

As you noted, I find the monitoring programs will vary from one program to another. Another factor is the sensors on the motherboard.

I would question the monitor program is displaying, but it may be the motherboard is not reporting correctly or that program is not compatible with your motherboard.

CPUID Monitoring
Those of you who use CPUID, I have a question for you. There is a FAN monitor and sometimes RPM's Minimum is 0 (it is not on this snip), which indicates to me it has stopped. I have three case fans and the CPU fan. Is this the CPU fan and have yours ever shown Zero?
