No matter what software you use to check your voltages, it's all garbage and you can't rely on it. If your +12V was running between ~5.5V and 8V like the graph shows, your computer would not even be running. The reading is completely off and there's no way for software to measure voltages reliably.

No, not enough voltage would not cause anything to overheat. It would however cause instability.
Regardless though, that measurement cannot be true. I'm serious, the fact that you were in Windows running OCCT and everything was running normally is proof of that. Your computer would not boot at all with such low voltages as what OCCT is telling you.
I mean it -- software-based voltage monitoring is useless, do not rely on it for anything. If you suspect something is wrong with your voltages, use a digital multimeter.
