Stupid question, but is 1.025V the same as 1.25V? Or is 1.250V the same as 1.25V? I am assuming it's 1.025V. The reason I am asking is because I have my 3570K at 4.0GHz and the voltage set to auto through my motherboard. It will go up to a maximum of 1.100 on auto. It's probably a matter of basic math, but that is why I'm not a math teacher! Haha!

1.25v is 1.2500v which is obviously not the same as 1.025v...doh.gif

Where that decimal is makes a huge difference. 1.25V is actually a large jump from 1.025V. They are not the same.

So, then 1.100 vcore @ 4.0GHz is fine, right? I've stress tested for 6 hour with Prime95 and it's stable. I don't care to do it any longer than 6 hours.

That was uncalled for. I could ask you the same thing. I think you're missing a comma before that right. :D

^This. 1.25v I so very obviously not the same thing as 1.025v. I'm not that familiar with 1155 GIGABYTE motherbaords but its possible that it works with a relative number meaning its +0.025v, +0.050 over standard all the way up to +1.100v over standard meaning the +1.100v is an extreme over voltage (the actual vcore being something like 2.125v). Does the mobo give you a warning when you sett it to 1.100v?

Yes, 1.25V is different than 1.025V.
