I just did an 1 hour test in OCCT (it's @ 3537 MHz):
I'm worried about the spikes in the pics
Does anyone know of a software that can do what OCCT does, without OCCT running?
ASUS Aibooster or ASUS probe should be included with your mobo drivers, it has hardware monitoring built in.
if those are youre actual Volts i'd be looking at replacing the PSU before it quits on ya
the only true way to measure Volts is with a meter though
I think they're my actual volts in the PSU
I'm hoping someone knows of a program that can make more accurate (to the second??) measurements then OCCT.
like i said try the ASUS utility, i use it and its not that bad. you can select the polling intervals
I know of it. I had used it for quite some time but took it off because of this:
Look @ the volts in PC Probe II and in Everest (except VCore)
PC Probe II doesn't do a graph, does it?
so PC probe 2 doesnt work for ya?
nothing in that screen matches
It does work.
So far, Everest only got like that 1 time @ boot. Usually, it's fine but then it gets like that.
I already made a technical inquiry to Asus about it!
I'll reboot and take another screenie.
i use the original PCprobe and it works fine for me, not shure if it would work with your MOBO as its new gen
have you tried TPU downloads to see if something can be found there?
Here's a pic of PC Probe II and Everest running properly:
doesn't PCprobe give you an option for hardware monitoring?
Doesn't make a log of the temps, as far as i can tell. It logs when it the temp or volts screw up, but not all the time.
I'm looking for something like this:
Doesn't have to be this detailed: it only needs to record in a chart the results for a given time frame!
heres a pic of what i use
That's what i'm looking for, or something like that!
That's PC Probe but not version II, correct?
yes ASUS PCprobe
maybe you can D/L it from ASUS's site and try it?
I had a program running all this time and didn't even know it
While i was priming, i had Everest running:
Here's a statistic chart:
This prog's chart isn't big enough for a better diagnostic but i find these variations unsettling
Judging from the pic Intel Igent provided, it seams that PC Probe's chart window is small too
Does anyone know of a program that can better depict variations in the PSU's voltages?
Something that shows charts like OCCT but that could be horizontally scrollable: that would be ideal
Closest to that that I can think of is the graph in SpeedFan, but it starts replacing itself after a while (ie: only shows past 60 minutes or something like that).
I was going to suggest that having multiple monitoring programs running at the same time could be bad. Before, I had one program that worked fine. However, when I started the second program to compare the reading, the numbers on the first program got all messed up.
Great: i installed that prog yesterday but i'm unfamiliar with how to set it up to do what you suggest. Could you help with that, please?
Dunno, really! While i was priming, i had Real Temp 2.5, Everest (blue lower right and system stability test, but the test wasn't running: only showing the graph) and Faststone Capture (screenie prog). Tried to add Core Temp to the mix while priming but couldn't get it to run. It interfered with Prime95:
In this case, it skipped a test in one of the cores, but i saw it skip 2 tests in 2 different occasions: no screenies, though!
As far as i could tell, the different monitoring progs didn't interfere with each other: i could be wrong, though!
I don't have speedfan installed, but the last tab on the right had the graph. You just needed to check some boxes to add the stuff to the graph. TBH, I can't remember how many different voltages you could get from it.
If you have it installed and post a pic of the tab, I could walk you through it. However, it really is self-explanitory.
I see what you mean but:
It doesn't show the results
It should read between 3 and 12.5 or something but it only reads from 3.5 to 11.2 or something :shadedshu
And it hasn't the 5V reading
Is there a way to increase the scale of the reading?
Both readings are showing on the graph. The 3.3v is the red line at the bottom of the graph, and the solid green line near the top is the 12v. At 11.2v or whatever, that seems real low. I would break out a multimeter anc check it for sure.
AFAIK there is no way to expand the range of the graph, but you can add something outside the range to make others show better. Like add vcore to see the 3.3v reading better.
Heh: didn't even notice
Managed to see the 3.3 better, though:
This king of graph is what i'm looking for though i would much prefer OCCT's. The problem is that OCCT's doen't work with running a OCCT bench
Tried the same for the 12 one but it didn't work out well: compare it to the Everest reading:
I am firstly concerned by your 12V readings (ie. always sagging under load). Mine hovers around 12.36 under load.
Those "variations" as you call them are most likely the result of the LoadLineCalibration or whatever vDroop control the Rampage has. The attempts to maintain a steady level will ALWAYS result in a large overshoot (when switching from load to idle) and undershoot (at the beginning of a load). This is reflected in your readings in Everest.
Try some runs with the vDroop correction Disabled in the BIOS.
This OCCT test was done with LLC disabled. I haven't done any pencil mods on the board either.
