im asking this question because i just got an antec truepower430
psu to switch out my generic 500watt psu.the +3.3v rail is at 2.7
with either psu whether im o/c'ing or not.both psus +5v rail
are at 4.8-4.9.the +12v rail on both psus are at 11.75-11.85.
only thing i did to the mobo was put some ramsinks(silversinkman)on the mosfets and replaced the nb heatsink with an iceburg chipset cooler.

The 8RDA+ 1.1 is a voltage hog big time...those are about average rail volltages...even with the ramsinks added...all the ramsinks will do is keep them slightly cooler...

When you do some serious OCing you will see the 5 drop around 4.65 - 4.75 and the 12 drop around 11.55 - 11.65
