it's best to always use a good digital multimeter connected to a spare sata power cable for testing your voltage.
I use to drive myself crazy using readings from the bios or from software, even the software that came with my
asus motherboard was incorrect or would show different readings every 5 mins or even set off a warning saying
my voltage was to low, stopped using all that software a year ago and haven't had any problems.

your welcome. you can also check your 5v on the sata connector using a meter, and if you get a printout of a atx psu 24 pin connector layout (I googled it) you can pin test the voltages at your motherboards 24 pin connector while the system is running.
I like to connect my meter to a sata connector once a month and monitor voltages with a full load on my system.
