You should replace the S12ii IF 620W and lower first before thinking about anything else...

How can you tell someone to replace their power supply without knowing anything about their situation?

I mean, I can see where he's coming from as S12II is not great anymore.

But still, why such oddly specific question in the first place? Is sth not working correctly?

Actually, I don't know if my PSU has voltage regulation feature or not.

That's basically the main purpose of computer power supplies: to convert AC power to voltage regulated DC.

The power supply accepts a wide voltage range (let's say 90v AC to 250v AC) and produces the voltages a computer expects (3.3v , 5v, 12v)

Like any power supply, it has some input filtering so it can handle some "noise", some fluctuations but it's NOT a uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or a "power stabilizer" , it won't continue to work if you have no power for more than a few ms, or if you have really poor electricity in your building.
