# Voltage Monitoring via SoftwareRobertC 2010-05-18 22:26
Great work adding the electrical measurements to your PS reviews. I am curious about your opinions on and experiences with software power monitoring tools that are installed and run on a PC. Intel has in its Desktop Utilities tool a Hardware Monitor section which among other things, displays voltage readings of the +12, +5, and +3.3 DC rails, as well as the MCH and Processor voltages (labeled Vcc.) The seemingly real time digital display has a resolution of three decimal places (1/1000 volt.) Alarms can be set to warn of over or under voltage situations. In general, how do these programs work and how accurate can they be? Are any of them worthy of an enthusiasts attention? Thank you.

While the accuracty may not be to electrical engineer level, I would contend that some form of monitoring is better than none at all. So long as the software doesn't cause any problems, I'd say it's worth installing.
