Question Antec True 550 3.3 issues?

I've seen a ton of forums and I've experienced my self where my 3.3 drops below the 5% threshold when monitoring whith the Asus Probe... Is this a prob? This only happens when it goes to a full load on the cpu, ie: Sacred(the game). I just bought the Antec True 550 for the Geforce 6800 Ultra... WTF... is it busted already or is it just a **** up from the on board monitoring system... I've had no crashes or anying runing any of the top of the line games... ie: Far Cry, UT2004, Hitman Contacts, Sacred, etc... Should I be worried? BTW, I just replaced the Antec True 430 about 2 days ago. I read that it was just the onboard system messing up... what do you all think... BTW, it has been running without issue (ie: crashes or anything) for about 5 days. Prob. or no?

I had a Antec 400 , the 3.3 v allways displayed 3.28-29.Never stayed at 3.3 .The 12v was allways 11.98v . 5v was 4.99 etc... I replaced it with an Enermax EG465P-VE all the V stay above the standard v readings with the same monitoring tool .Ive seen other Systems with Antec PS same inacurate readings .
So i only buy Enermax or better PS .
