Officially, you're allowed up to 10% variation (10.8 to 13.2 volts on the +12 V). Unofficially, I'd look for less than 5% (11.4 to 12.6 V). My SeaSonic SS-660XP² is showing 12.096 on the +12V and 5.040 on the +5V.

This thread prompted me to check on my power supply. Let's take a look:

Uhh...
I guess I should head over to Newegg right this minute. I think I may be killing my components.
Just for everyone's information, my power supply is a Corsair HX520W from 2007.

All this is assuming the sensors are working properly. It's best to check with a meter. Also, check before and after setting up a heavy load in the computer. If the voltage swings a lot (more that say .1v) you are going to have big issues with component stress.
