Hey there,
bought TX550M Gold last year.
Worked like a champ until the last 3-4 weeks i noticed the 12V had degraded down so bad.
Today, GPU made a reset and incidentally I had hwmonitor open and saw that the 12V went down as low as 11.3.
I roughly moved the big cable at the PSU end and it went up to 11.6.
PC Didn't shut down so i don't think it has that regular UVP thing.

Any ideas how dangerous this is? Any potential parts at risk?

My salary is still like 2-3 weeks away.

I have also emailed Corsair just in case but it'll be a while before they respond i think.

Those readings aren't from the PSU. They're from the motherboard.

That said, check your power connectors into the motherboard to make sure they're still secure and there's no corrosion. Maybe apply a little CRC dielectric grease.
