Default Messed Up PSU?

My PSU voltages on the positives read out:

IDLE
3.3V = 3.28V
5V = 4.78V
12V = 12.42V

LOAD
3.3V = 3.26V
5V = 4.68V
12V = 12.62V



Should I be worried about my PSU?

Odd readings yes, but some PSU are different then others, so honestly I don't know.

Eh I just have the BIOS Vcore setting on auto, which seems fine. I don't have any stability problems. I'm going to buy a Rosewill PSU tonight. Has 18A on the 12v rail compared to my 10A, 2 fans also so it might help in my temps hopefully some. It's only $25 and should hold me off until I save up for an Ultra X-Connect

What? I believe you're the only one that has ever said they aren't worth the money, why do you think that? It would be good to know.
