Normally, the QTec 550W PSU is a good one, but this one could be running out of specs.

However, if you’re not exeperiencing any (stability) problems with your system, don’t worry too much about it…

If you want to make sure your mainboard is measuring good, check the voltages with a normal volt meter…
