Yes they are tight. Do they jump around or something?

Good, I wasn't sure what're the acceptable deviations.

Well +12V rail fluctuates from 11.795 to 11.856 V and +3.3V rail fluctuates from 3.248 to 3.264 V if it tells you anything...
CPU core voltage jumps from 1.040V to 1.2/1.3 V sometimes but it could be that common issue with that ASUS M3A78 motherboard model.

Sometimes I hear some cyclic buzzing sonds (even if it's not under heavy load) but it stops after couple of seconds, it can be silent for days. It's Corsair CX500 and it's not too old, maybe a year at most.

I've started checking all that because I get grey stripes freeze in a "World of Tanks" game, also once in "AC III", but it happens very rare, randomly. Tried all solutions with cleaning drivers, workarounds, settings but it didn't work. It seems to be a common issue with some of the new ATI/AMD graphic cards.

Yeah so long as the 12v rail is near 12v be happy but right now i try and steer people clear of AMD. The new drivers are supposed to help but I have heard this so many times from Intel,nvida and AMD

Actually it's been happening with all driver versions since 13.2, or even 12.8. Today officially it happened with 13.8 Beta version. Anyways I'd like that to be software issue... I don't want to RM this card because I didn't purchase it in my country.

I don't think you will have to RM it. Have you tried to drop things like AA make sure vsync is on that might help. Also make sure you are gaming at the right res so if your monitor is 1900 x 1080 play at those settings that might help reduce some of your problems.

I don't think V-sync was enabled, I enabled it now. Resolution is set on recommended as usual 1920x1080. I'll keep AA enable for now since I think it affects the quality a bit in this case.
