Just had my generic power supply take a poopoo on me, so I decided to upgrade to a name brand with some more power. I went out and got the Thermaltake Purepower TWV 500w.
After installing this new supply everything booted up fine, except my Abit EQ(hardware temp monitoring program) pops up beeping its a$$ off about the -5v reading something like 3.5v.
Here are my specs:
Athlon XP 2500 Barton OC'ed to 3200+
Abit NF7 Mobo
Corsair XMS DDR 400 1GB(2x512mb)
ATI 9800 Pro
Dvd rom/ CD rw combo drive
120 gb WD HD
I only have 3 80mm fans running on this thing(4 if you include the cpu fan), so as you can see this baby should handle this system like it was nothing.
Ok, how worried do I need to be? Should I take this supply back? Do I have something overloaded?
I have looked all over and can't seem to find what -5v is for exactly.
