Need help with temperatures & voltage, beginner custom-rig

Hey everyone, my freshly-made rig suddenly shut down 2 days ago and would not want to start again. It was really scary and found out that the PSU died (after 4 days yay) by switching with my girlfriend's PSU.

The initial PSU was a Corsair CX750 and the new one is a CX750M.

Could you take a look at my temperatures and voltage and see if there's any anomaly ? Every component is new and very expensive to me, I am very scared that it will die again.

Thank you so much ! ^_^

These readings were taken when idle on desktop:

Just in case, here is the build:
Asus Sabertooth 990FX Mobo
Nvidia Geforce 660 GTX GPU
Corsair CX750M PSU
AMD FX-8350 8Core 4.0G CPU
8GBx2 Corsair CMZ16G RAM
ThermalTake CLW0215 Water Cooler
Seagate 2TB Barracuda 7.2k RPM HDD
240GB Crucial SSD

Best solution

Could of been just a bad unit. I would honestly go out and purchase a more quality PSU. The voltages are fine. The only difference you have with the m is its modular. With corsair its

CX low end builders PSU
TX Professional
HX Enthusiast

Thank you for your answer, I am quite surprised as to how often PSUs fail, I've seen on newegg for example the quantity of reviews of people getting DOA PSUs and really surprised of getting one myself.

I will blame the old PSU then :) , Thank you !

yea i mean if your power supply failed and you had to get a new one and everything is fine its just possible the power supply wasn't working as intended.
