im guessin you havent run it on a mobo

theres a chance that it will go to normal if u run it normal

Its usually the otherway around actually. Unless he was loading it without a mobo, in which case you're right. Most powersupplies rails are lower without any load on them.

Horny PSU or what eh ?! :D
Usually Volts drop when you connect it to a motherboard but not much, depends the quality of the PSU. But those volts are very high, i would not suggest to connect it to a motherboard, it would be good if you could connect it to an old/cheap motherboard and see if it's working OK.
