Not exactly every item, but there are tools in the ports,
such as mbmon and xmbmon that allow you to monitor several
voltages (as well as other parameters, such as temperature
or fan speed, if they are transmitted to the OS).

By the way, I'm not sure the issue you described points
to too less power; my workstation is full of hard disks
and old SCSI stuff, and I'm fine with a 235 W PSU (no
joke) in long-term usage and I/O stress situations.
