This is my data from HWmonitor

Spoiler
Hardware monitor ITE IT87
Voltage 0 1.02 Volts [0x40] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1 1.60 Volts [0x64] (VIN1)
Voltage 2 3.06 Volts [0xBF] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3 5.00 Volts [0xBA] (+5V)
Voltage 4 11.97 Volts [0xBB] (+12V)
Voltage 5 -7.74 Volts [0x79] (-12V)
Voltage 6 -8.51 Volts [0x85] (-5V)
Voltage 7 3.60 Volts [0x86] (+5V VCCH)
Voltage 8 3.22 Volts [0xC9] (VBAT)
Temperature 0 42°C (107°F) [0x2A] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 1 37°C (98°F) [0x25] (TMPIN1)
Temperature 2 22°C (71°F) [0x16] (TMPIN2)
Fan 0 2909 RPM [0xE8] (FANIN0)
Fan 1 4383 RPM [0x9A] (FANIN1)
Fan PWM 0 0 pc [0x0] (FANPWM0)
Fan PWM 1 0 pc [0x0] (FANPWM1)
Fan PWM 2 99 pc [0x7F] (FANPWM2)


Does the voltage look a little off to anyone? I'm not experience any symptoms.. But earlier this week i had a really bad smell coming from the PSU and i cleaned it up(Had a LOT of dust) it still has the occasional bad smell but its mostly subsided now

More about : psu voltage

looks fine, the smell was probably because the nasty dust inside the psu had trapped some odours in the air, and acted as an anti-airfreshner.

It smelled a lot like burning plastic :(  It seems like its completely subsided now.. But i had to take it out of the computer case for it to go away.. The way my case is setup the GPU fan blows its heat directly onto my psu which has two fans(Inside and out)

It starts back up with the burning smell when its in the case

In any case, If the voltages look okay ill deal with it for now.. Thank you

They seem to be ok , just keep and eye and a nose out for trouble.

Should the voltage be rapidly changing? Everything is going up and down pretty rapidly.. Not too much of a difference between them though

Like 12+ is going to 11.520 and as high as 11.904

that's fine, as long as they stay within 5% of the required voltage value. (i.e on 12+, you should not get less then 11.4V). the voltage may change slightly depending on the load on the psu, and a 5% change should be tolerable and safe.
