Default Volt checking?

Is there any way to measure the voltage going to a CPU?

Not software, just like manually?

What bad is happening to your computer if its not getting enough voltage? I have no idea whether my computer is being hurt by my crappy psu or not since I don't know what the readings are, but just wondering.

Well, can low voltages fry a processor?

My proc doesn't work, it keeps giving errors.
