I was curious this morning about my temperature and voltage readings so I downloaded Speedfan and CPUID's Hardware Monitor.
I have the following hardware
CPU : i5 3.2GHZ
RAM : 4 x 2GB DDR3
GPU : HD 5770 Hawk
HDD : 3 x 7200RPM Drives (SATA2)
The first question, The voltage reading on idle on my 12V rail is sitting at 8V and I've read somewhere that due to windows 7's power management that under idle, the voltage would drop, is that correct?
The second question, My CPU Core is at 42Degrees C, which is fine and i'm happy with it, but my SYSTIN temperature reading is sitting at 100 Degrees, which I cannot believe to be true. Might there be a problem with the earlier DH55C motherboard sensors?
I have not checked what those readings are under load, but I will check tonight. I just want to know whether you folk think that 550W is enough and if these readings are acceptable?
