Haven't heard of any SW programs to test a PS. Problems ?

If so ....suggest posting the symptoms. There are hardware PSU testers ... several available at ... there's one made by Coolmax and another by UltraX. They both test most if not all of the lines coming out of the lines coming out of the PC power supply. Very handy to have in your PC toolbox.

Not a test

If I look in my bios I can view the voltages that the mobo is seeing.

My mobo maker does supply a prog that runs under windows and I can view the same info.
