Are these volts ok?

+3.3v @ 3.34v

+5.0v @ 4.87v

+12.0v @ 11.84v


Or are these a little low?

And how long does it take thermal paste to settle? As my CPU seems to run hotter in my new Akasa Eclipse from a Silentium T2.


Thanks.

Are those readings from a program or measured with a multimeter.


I dont think its the paste that has to settle in. The two cases are vastly different in design and airflow path. Have u mounted the fan duct for the cpu?

The readings are fine in that they are all within the +-5% range that is considered acceptable but if you haven't checked with a multimeter it may be better to do so.

use a multimeter on a molex connector which will give you the +12V and +5V readings. Ignore the software

My corsair HX 520W is bang on the 3V, 5V, and 12V lines under load :D

Thanks guys, and about my CPU temps, I'd thought it would be cooler in the Akasa with 2 fans rather than my T2 case. :confused:

It used to be at 33'c idle overclocked, right now it's 34'c idle standard.

Can anyone please explain on how the temps get measured from this pic?

What's the difference in the CPU diode and CPU?

Picture taken from Everest. The CPU temp is same as the CPU on Asus Probe II, but what's the CPU diode?


Thanks.

FYI (slightly off topic) but my load temp is 2 degrees warmer after fitting the M12-600 than with my old Hiper type-r 580.
