As far as I know, the voltages should be within 10% of the nominal values, so yours all look OK.

Do you know what caused your previous PSU to be blown? Important, as the same actions would probably blow a new PSU, whatever quality.

Steady state voltage values are no indication of performance under load. More important than voltage is the power rating (Watts) which should have a decent extra margin over the combined wattage of all components which will be drawing power from your PSU.

Hi Danhoe all I was doing was upgrading my cpu at first I thought it was that but by a process of eliminatiom I tracked it down to the psu the stated wattage is 550 watts and the psu is called EZcooler I had never heard of it befor but it was the only psu my computer shop stocked in 400 or 550 watt so I chose the 550 thanks kopite
