Question What are these voltages? (Help!)

Hi guys,

I downloaded hardware monitor, and although I'm not entirely assured by a program, some voltages are in red, which confuses me, as I don't know perfectly what voltages should be!

Can someone explain why there is red highlighting these voltages? is it bad?

Thanks for your help!

well...(this may be pointing out the obvious, im sorry) but i dont know for dual cores but for recular cpu thats very high voltages, but i cant imagine its right as the temps are fine, double check with pc wizard 06, dunno bout the aux, but the -5v is the psu, and should be closet to 5v as poss, so thats why thats red, but yea double check with pc wizard, is ther the same as that, go find a corner and cry

those have to be incorrect voltages. i think anything over about 1.8v means instant death for a revision E processor.

Most motherboards are pretty inaccurate with reporting voltages, so long as they're stable and you dont get any problems then all is probably well.
Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300

I have that same monitor and it says my voltage is 2.33V so basically dont listen to it. i think cpu-z gives a better reading.
