    Is the fact that its producing 3.4v on its 3.3v rail enough to warrant sending it for RMA?

    Can the continued use of this power supply possibly cause any kind of irreparable damage to my pc?

    Seasonic S12 II voltage questions

    I have a seasonic s12 ii 620 psu that i bought in 2017-it appears to be the newer model having flattened cables.

    On my unit,the idle voltage on the 3.3v rail stays at 3.41 volts(approx),while...

    ^Well in that case can i assume that the psu is ok as long as the output doesn't exceed 3.465 volts?

    I know that the measurements made using software are always likely to be error prone-its just...

    ^what can we conclude from this?Is my psu functioning properly?Isn't 11.7v rather low for a new dc-dc psu like my cx 450?

    Given that the voltage from the molex connector turned out to be 12.27V,can it be safe to assume that the voltage on the other cables(such as sata,24pin connector,EPS etc)is also around 12.27V?

    Is...

    Thanks ,so can it be assumed that 12.3v is the actual voltage that's being supplied to the motherboard by the psu under load,or is it an adjusted figure that does not truly reflect what the voltage...
