    The highest I've seen a 12v rail is 13.08 volts. I think as long as it doesn't sink below 12v you should be O.K. Did you do all the component changing because of a continuing BSOD problem?

    That could be normal changei nhte voltages, as it's less than 0.1V

    You should not get a BSOD (the D stands for death, btw ;)) from a power supply problem, go to C:\WINDOWS\Minidump and put your 5 most recent into a zip file then attach it to a new reply in this thread

    The voltage differences and shutdowns are possibly not related if it is giving you a BSOD. Please attach your dumps to a new reply.

    It is normal for voltages to change slightly whilst the pc is on, if I sit and watch my BIOS, the voltages on my PSU change all the time, not always very much but they do change.
