Default 12 v line

could somebody explain the voltage situation from the psu and what it means. i hear comments like you have a good 12 v line and have no idea. how do you check it? i have everest home edition and it lists voltage values with cpu core under it and then a list of four + voltages with the + 12 v one last. how do you know if the're good or not?

+3.3v 3.30v
+5v 5.05v
+12v 12.06v

yup

a lot of devices run off the +12v line. It's mainly important for OC'ers because the CPU draws off the +12v rail, so if you dont have a strong rail it'll compromise stability.

Yours are right on the money, so your PSU isn't getting taxed beyond it's capabilities

I really thought CPU was +3.3 on the AMD's and +5v on the Intel's?

Those are kick arse voltages
