My point is lmsensors is only as accurate as the sensor configuration
file. In my case, lmsensors didn't report a problem but when I used a
digital voltmeter, my power supply was low, even after being removed
from the system. lmsensors was showing a .5 volt difference.

I have seen an adapter that fits into a case that gives you a selectable
display that has voltages and temperatures. This may be useful if you
can find it.
