Voltage reading. A bad PSU?

I haven't done overclock so it might be the wrong forum category for this questions. Sorry than and please move.

I checked my voltage readings using Everest, here they are

CPU Core:  1.30 - 1.34V
AUX:  3.49 - 3.55V
+3.3V:  3.25 - 3.30V
+5V:  5.28 - 5.51V
-5V:  -0.78 - -0.83V
+5V Standby:  4.99 - 5.0V

The bios also reports a +12V as 11.3 to 11.8V.

Are those reading bad?

Hardware:
CPU Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ 64bit HT LGA 775 Prescott
Motherboard Asus P5P800S
2*512 DDR SDRAM Kingston 64bit
HD1: ExcelStore Technology J880
HD2: WesternDigital
GPU: Nvidia Geforce 6600 8xAGP 256MB
LG DVD Writer
Floppy diskette (i know its old, but still useful sometimes)
CPU FAN Arctic Cooling alpine 7 PRO
PSU EzCool 450Watt


Thanks a lot!

    Spec calls for 12v +/- 5% ( 11.4 - 12.6 )
    If the bios shows you an 11.3 you might want to get a DMM and check it.

  3. With DMM check on idle while PC shows the bios window:
    Quote:

    +12V: +11.55V
    +5V: +5.01V

    Good or bad?
  4. In spec, but low, I'd say time for an upgrade.
