    CoolerMaster PSUs kinda stink, I've seen a number of them fail.. certainly more than I have seen Corsair/Seasonic/Antec etc.

    This is coming from someone who likes CoolerMaster and use their products. I would not use them for PSUs if your power demands are high

    You get what you pay for..

    why not spend a little extra on Case and PSU since those are the things that are going to stay after each upgrade. my last case lasted 8 years. although the antec PSU i bought in 2005 gave up in 2008, antec warranty covered it and sent me a better and more efficient replacement(80_plus). $210 was all i spent on case and PSU since 2004. personaly i preper the 7 year warranty, it pays for itself in a long run.

    I didn't measured, but that's what everest (aida64) reporting, also HW monitor.

    Yeah, maybe motherboard reads it wrong, but i doubt 15v rail would cause any fire tho :p, especially when is DC power :).

    Software and bios readings are often inaccurate in reading voltages. Most of the time they are just "approximate". If somethings way off, it means you need a dedicated device (multimeter) to measure it. I've had false readings before but found things OK when checked with a mm.

    Yeah, but since everything working just fine, i don't need to take any measure. It would not be first time to see those strange numbers for me also ;).
