PCWIZARD accuracy

How reliable are PCWIZARD's voltage readings?

On one of my pc's it's showing the 5V line fluctuating from 1.5v to 5v.  The
other lines hold within +/- .1 volt.  [If the readings are fairly accurate,
the power supply - obviously - needs to be returned/replaced]

On my other pc's it's showing variations in the +/- hundredths of a volt =>
sure seems like it's accurate - just looking for any input.  Getting ready
for RMA discussion with the vendor

If the +5V line was really varying that much then the computer very
likely wouldn't be running to tell you so. If it is the -5V supply then
it probably won't matter since IIRC no modern equipment is even using
that voltage. Of course it might just be the sensor chip acting up too
and that may or may not matter.
