11 volt is out of spec and it is dangerous to continue running your PC

Any other opinions, I'm thinking maybe the sensor on the mobo is off a little since they say the same thing.

It should be as close to 12v as possible. If you have a digital volt meter, pull the PSU and check the voltage analogue for the 20/24 pin (ATX connector) and Molex connectors (the thingys that power your hard drive/cdroms etc.)
