Your NeoHE should have no problems powering a 6950, unless it's faulty. And the 6950 does not need 24A, the card itself probably consumes around 12A at full load.

FYI, your PSU has 504w/42A on the +12v.

And to everyone recommending a 750w+.... a good 400-450w is plenty for a single 6950 rig.

ya, I had a cheap psu and spent 30 minutes playing medal of honor and burned xD

Corsair HX750 is very good

So true.
People always overestimate PSU's...

You can't trust software-based voltage monitoring anyway, so don't worry about it. Regardless of how untrustworthy it is though, those two values are perfectly fine for your +12V.
