12v Rail Reads Low

Most machines have an option to read the voltage in the BIOS and these can vary dramatically from what the figures are reported in Windows. IF you can read these in your BIOS could you post those readings as well please?
A +12v rail running at 8v, this only realistically powers the processor and the odd graphics card or two so you may find, since that's an Intel Sandy Bridge build it's a throttle device to limit power when the machine sits there doing nothing.

The motherboard is an MSI P67A-C43 (B3), paired with an Intel i5 2500k chip and a Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W. Last night before I read your response, I went on a "google search fest" looking to solve the problem. For some reason, it seems as though the hardware diagnostic tools don't seem to read the voltage sensors correctly on this board.
I found a utility from MSI that will allow me to make adjustments and read the sensors and decided to try that. It worked properly and everything seems to be within spec.

I'm able to turn down the CPU fan and the rear fan, but can't do anything about the others. I also can't seem to find a way to force the system to adjust fan speed based on temperature. I find myself having to do it manually, which is a royal pain in the a$#. I also can't seem to get the MSI control center to load my saved profile at boot, so every time I reboot the system I have to open the control panel and adjust the fan speeds. It's just annoying.
I checked the BIOS and can't seem to find anything in there that would help.

that you check your temps every once in a while as a precautionary measure, you can manually set your
fans if you are not happy with the Auto setting/s.
Is the adapter in the .jpeg below what you require?
