Running Everest and connecting the volt meter to double check idle current I came up with the following. Everest seems to show a little lower than the volt meter shows.
I ran prime95 and 3DMark06 together to give the power supply sufficient stress testing. I ran the tests for hours and during this time I was taking readings from high to low and recording the results. The testing did not show too much of a drop between the high and low readings with only a .01 drop on all tests and lines. Everest shows us that the fans are relaying the info correctly from the AST Connections.
