My antec True power 550 is doing 11.31v on the +12v rail but have not seen a crash yet. Does this rail even apply to AMD platforms?

For many the 12v+ rail is one of the most important rails on any system. That does seem low, are you sure the program is reading the voltages right? Or is this in the BIOS? What's in your system?

I would try un plugging some drives, and maybe fans if you have a buch, just run the minimums and see if you voltages increase at all.

Ive been getting these readings from MBM5. Would put it past me its the mobo. A7N8X mobos doesnt know how much juice to regulate from its own a$$. Im really wanting to get an Abit mobo on this rig too.

That will be a fun run of unplugging everything and giving it a run.
