Testing New psu

My uncle's old psu broke. I needed to upgrade my psu anyway, so I gave him my old one and bought Seasonic S12II 620 Watts. Now, I'm a bit rusty at assembling new pc. The Pc boots up, seems to be okay. But is there any way to see if PC is getting right voltages in different components of the rig? If so, I'll test and post results here. Thank you.

Okay. I'm not sure which ones to save among logs. I'm attaching sensor log and also other software (whichever installers I had on my PC) logs.

It seems to be okay, what say you? Do I need to any short stress test. Furmark? Prime95? Which modes to run/how long?

hi the 5v is a little low check what bios has for your voltages.

BIOS shows no 5v, at least I couldn't find it on my mobo bios. Not even Gigabyte Easytune 6 shows that. Only AIDA and Cpuid Hwmonitor shows that volt. Giving that also

that's ok not all bios have it. I just do not go by what a program tells you. but you do have a very good power supply one of the best makers of power supplies.

Then I shouldn't worry? Which cord supplies the +5v anyway? I think I fixed all the cables firmly.

+5v should be operating at around 4.500-5.200v but that's still fine though it's wee-bit lower than what it should be.
