Default Voltage question

So I am finally on the pc I just built. My PSU is an Antec TruePower 2 TP-II 550 watts and after looking at SpeedFan results I noticed some of my volts (-12 and -5)are higher than they are listed to be. Not sure how big of a deal this is.. here's a pic:

Accurate Readings will result from using a DMM NOT a Software Program.

If your truely worried.

Ah yes, I found an article that says:

"never pay any mind to the -5V or -12V reading in software. Those are typically EXTREMELY off .... some pretty wacky numbers are often the result."

I'm not worried anymore. Thanks for the help!
