Extra volts

Question

My bios has a hardware monitor feature which will tell you the opperating voltages.

For some reason the 3.3v supply is too high, it is usually about 3.75v, but it has got as high as 3.85v.

Is this going to cause a problem, or do I just need to be extra careful that that I have enough cooling fans to make sure it doesn't overheat?

Is there anyway of adjusting the voltages?

Regards, Richard Gregory

It is a 350w power supply.

The motherboard is an Asus A7V8x-x

It won't cause a problem as long as you have enough ventalation and cooling fans for it as long as it does not get to dangerous levels like pass 3.90v you should be good and save but please keep an extra eye out on that situation
