Re: Intel Desktop Utilites +3.3V warning
I'm in agreement with FizzyMyNizzy ; I'd recommend replacing the PSU first. If the problem continues, replace the motherboard. Those are the only two components which could explain this behaviour (specifically since you're using Intel's native utilities on an Intel native board which calculate voltage/etc. correctly).

Yup, I did that already. Since the existing PSU was a bit old already I just went ahead and got a new one today. I only saw the voltage error message a few times during a period of one hour or so and was actually the first time I paid attention to voltage levels. The error didn't show up again but the +3.3 V always kept in the yellow on the low side at times venturing into red briefly. With the new PSU all three voltages on top went up above their nominal value but the lower was didn't change.
So I guess it is fixed.
Thanks for the replies.
