Please be aware that I'm not trying to step on any toes here, but just offering an alternative point of view. Is it possible that all of these programs are giving false readings? I was having a similar problem with my new build until I found the utility provided by my motherboard manufacturer. All the utilities were reading the power supply voltages incorrectly. Here is my thread where Neil Jones and phillpower2 were nice enough to help me out. Once again, there is no disrespect intended by this post. :)

Here is what mine look like, comparing SIW, Hardware Monitor, SpeedFan and finally the MSI utility. Everything seems incorrect except for the one provided by MSI.

You could always try the bios and see if there is a reading available there for the volts and temps.
Also the initial post stated there is a annoying buzzing sound coming from the PSU
Normally I would say that is a indication of failing bearings in the fan assembly.

I couldn't answer sooner. For some reason, I couldn't access this site on Friday. I looked at the PSU and was unable to determine the answers to the make and wattage of the PSU. I took photos of the PSU from the side (with the panel off the tower) and from the back. Let me know your opinions on it (it was a generic retro fit).

Server issues but it should all be good now.

Nope the sticker for it is probably on the top where you can't see it or the other side.
