Angry PSU rail voltage problems....

Here are my PSU rail voltages. I have been running it this way for 6 months without knowing it. Is this a critical problem? Would I be safe to keep running my PC until I can afford a new PSU? Thanks for any replies.

this might actually be why your X800 isn't performing so well

Many of your devices run off of the 12v rail. Many of the fans, hard drive, optical drives, and video cards. Try removing some of the extra devices you have in your case and see if the voltage on the rail adjusts.

Doubble check with a multimeter, because my PC Probe lies, bad.

EDIT: I doubble check with my 300$ fluke multimeter, which costs doubble what the mobo costs, so i think it is right instead of the PC.
