    Disable "PC Alert" and install Everest Home Edition.
    See if it also shows a high +5v reading.
    If so, break out the multimeter and physically measure the voltage from +5v (it's the red wire in a Molex connector).

    If it actually IS outputting over 6v, return the PSU and get a different model.

    5.5v still seems high.
    Can you test it with a multimeter?
