ok i know NOTHIN about power supply ratings. all the the +12v, 3.3v, 5v rails make my head swim.
basically, the readout should be as close to 12, 5, and 3.3 as possible, correct?
i downloaded asusprobe for my computer just to play around and something is bad here.
i know i have a crappy PSU. it came stock on my factory built HP computer 4 and a half years ago. it never caused any problems so i just tried to ignore it.
it’s still not causing problems, but now i’m curious since asusprobe is blinking, beeping, and show red lines on the graph. i assume this isn’t good (DUH) but can someone explain to me how bad it actually is? or point me to a tutorial where this stuff is explained?
i understand that these kinds of things are like ticking timebombs…just because it’s not causing trouble now doesn’t mean it won’t in the future. I consider myself lucky so far. I’m just interested in knowing how much danger I’m actually in.
this is the readout:
