Well you cant really rely on the software based voltage reading as it varies according to the application's used. And you really don't have to worry about the 3.3V much, as it ain't used widely these days on ATX V 2.0 High watts PSU's. Usually 3.3V are derived from the +5V itself and are rarely used if +5V rail is overloaded. But If you really wanna know then i would say , put a multimeter on any "Orange" color coded cable that comes out from your PSU while your PC is switched on. But as every one knows, its risky to try.

You should only worry about +12V rail and +5V at the most. And i would like to know how they are performing ?!

Check with a multimeter as suggested but also check your bios and see what that says as sometimes software can show something completely different to whats in the bios and if everything points towards it being below 3.3v and your worried about it try to rma it, an expensive psu like that shouldnt be that far out

That's not true at all... while the bulk of a power in a PC is derived from the PSU's +12V rail, the +3.3V and +5V are extremely important, both of them, even though they deliver only very small amounts of power. RAM, video cards and certain motherboard chipsets need it.

That said, like you said, you can't rely on software-based voltage monitoring for anything, so you'll need a digital multimeter to verify the output from your +3.3V rail.
