You'll probably find that the reading is completely wrong and you would need to go into the settings and offset the reading to get correct reading.

That is so close to 12 it's negligible.

-12V and the actual reading of -7.51V = -4.49V difference.

Thats a lot if the reading were true.

The - voltages are always way off for me with all of my power supplies in every one of my computers. And that doesn't actually supply voltage to the computer.
