My System Specs

Default Low 12V rail on Corsair AX1200

Is it normal to have your 12V rail lower than 11.58 volts?

I just noticed it now when i was looking at HWMonitor. When i had my XFX BE 850, i dont remember seeing the +12V rail that low. Even when using prime95 or MSI Kombustor to simulate load - the value keeps going lower actually. Is that normal?

I thought it would be closer to 11.8+ or at least as close to 12V.

Here's a screenshot (you can zoom in if need be):
