Massive voltage drop?

Hello,
I just ran HWMonitor and I discovered that my voltage readings are all way too low. Could it be my cheap psu? It's a Sweex (said to be)400 watt PS031.
Here is a picture of my readings:

Thanks for any help!

-edit- I also don't know where the 128 degrees reading is coming from. Could it be an disconnected temperature sensor?

Well it looks cheap and nasty, but hwmonitor could also be giving false readings.

Personally would replaced the psu with a more reliable model.

Thanks, I'll replace it soon. Is the Cooler Master B700 good?

Better than what you have, but still low budget psu.

And the Corsair CXM 600w? Or do you have a better suggestion?
