Default PSU rails.

I tried MBM5 and the results seem quite odd:

+3.3V= 3.38V
+5V= 4.08V Is this ok?
+12V= 11.61 (Everest and speedfan read it as 12.22)
-12v= -4.13 This changes a lot...going up and this important?
-5V= -0.00V (Seems a bit odd)

Now is it good for a Minuse voltage to have a smaller (larger) number. I.e. Is it good for -12V to be -1V? Or is it better for it to be -14v?

Also how the hell can oyu have minus voltages?

I have an Enermax Noisetaker 600w PSU.

if that +5v reading is accurate, thats pretty bad, 18% off. Most of the time you want your psu to function at +/- 5%, and anything above +/-10% is trouble. The 11.61v is only about 3% off, so thats not bad.
