Funny how I was just re-perusing the thread and was in the process of looking up the cheap multimeter that hercules used in his above stickied thread, lol. Thanks for the offer, I may get back with you on that, but I should probably get my own and check all my PSUs in all the families' computers since I've never done that. If I wanted to get my own voltmeter, do you have any suggestions that are fairly cheap but reliable? I see them online starting as low as $4 plus shipping, but I don't want to just get a junky trinket that will be unreliable, I'd like something that i can count on but won't cost too much. Thanks!
Would either of these be good enough, or are they overkill? http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng ... _AT_F&ref=
Or do I need something that tests more? Sometimes I hear talk of a voltmeter that you plug into the 4pin molex to test 3.3v, 5v, and 12v, other times of a device that adds up the entire system draw. What would I need?
I was only thinking Walmart because I have a gift card from my bday that I never used, but will consider any B&M or online outlet to get the best bang for the buck.
On second thought, perhaps "bang" is not a good word to use when talking about power supplies...
