Your PSU is fine stop worrying if it is .2V off.

Now power on the other hand...

So...

lower is better than higher on the rail(s)? Or is any deviation over or under a pre-determined threshold considered "bad"? The other MoBo's to include my Primary are >12, none are <12.

over or under is bad. both equally....

But, lower is probably better, as it'll just turn off. More will fry stuff....

Get a solid PSU, and you won't have to worry about it.
