The SMPS is for 12V 5V 3.3V etc
but bios show 1.7V is this done by converter on motherboard if so why it does not get from supply it self?

1) The current is probably 50amps or more, you would need either thicker cables or more of them = more cost.
2) The voltage drop would be a problem. You could get around this using voltage sense wires = more cost. The PSU would also need to be more powerful to account for the power loss = more cost.
3) Not all CPUs use the same voltage, you can even change it in the BIOS (Don't!). Adding this functionality to the PSU would be a pain and more cost.
Thanks from MMath
