Nope, its not a matter of concern. Getting something around 11 to 11.8 volts on a 12V rail is common. You cant get exactly 12V on any power supply AFAIK. Even the branded and best power supplies gives nearly that much voltage only on 12V rail. So dont worry on these numbers. The processors and GPU are designed to work on under power and also over power conditions. So, it wont damage your hardware. And its good that you are donating your PC's power for research purpose

Hello hughes232, It's good to know about this exciting software. The usage of your quad core processor is alright. But if maximum power supply concerning you try to contact at asus costumer service, just to confirm that pc is running alright. Up to my knowledge it's ok with your pc.......
