Could it be the mobo? There has been 2 HDDs almost fail on me within 7 months on my previous PSU. of course it could be completely coincidental, one of the HDD was quite old.

Looking at the picture in post #6

Your 12V+ = 10.008 V.
That is very low and can cause many problems including hard drive problems.

In post 6 picture of bios is 12.024 for 12v. Never trust software to read temp and volts.

BIOS and Gigabyte's own utility ET6 shows 12V is okay. I think the other software are giving me incorrect readings. A bit worried about the +5v though, no way of knowing until I buy a mobo that actually supports that sensor (I don't have the expertise to use voltmeter and such). I've gathered this much to guess it is very unusual that a maker like Seasonic will make two PSUs that both have the same power problems, isn't it? Can the motherboard be the culprit?

Because you are using a SeaSonic which is a quality power supply, I would believe the Bios voltage readings.
Of course the Bios voltage readings are with little stress (load) on your system.

If you are unable to use a DVOM you could have the power supply tested at a properly equipped computer repair shop or store.
Me personally, if I had a SeaSonic power supply and wasn't having any problems I would just leave things alone.

Are you having any problems with the computer at this time?

There was a significant lag in response,twice, after double clicking and execution of programs/opening of explorer windows. I don't know maybe because I installed the latest beta Crimson driver. I have uninstalled that now. Apart from that it seems to be ok.
OK. I'm doing that, let's see how things roll then. A big thank you to all who contributed knowledge.

Changed motherboard. Got a customer for my old one. Here are voltage readings.
