Changing Voltage in Bios doesnt show in windows

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm using a msi 880 gma- e45 motherboard with a phenomII x4 840 chip 4gb of corsair ram ddr3 1333 . My problem is, when I change the voltages in bios they remain the same in windows . So lets say my stock cpu voltage is 1.35 and i change it to 1.39 in bios when i load windows and open cpu-z it still reads 1.35. Im on the latest bios version any help would be appreciated!

It happened to me too with the latest CPU-Z(version 1.57). It reads it as CPU VID(stock voltage). Voltage at 1.30V all the time
I use an older version(1.56), which reads it as CPU Vcore. In this case the voltage will change.

because you put a 95w cpu in a board that can barley handle a 95w cpu

its a 4+1 power phase board
msi uses cheap mosfet's and vrm's
its probably running at its limit

be glad it runs it
dont overclock with it
and set the voltage as low as you can and still be stable

if you are going to keep it, get a heatsink kit for the mosfets/vrms

this would fit perfectly

lowering the voltage will increase the amperage(Ohm's law) --> higher chance to blow up those mosfets

the mosfets were already at/near their current limit
lowering the voltage will lower the cpu ilde wattage some

Well I gave up on overclocking this pc, because no matter what I did it would have odd crashes! I would test it on prime 95 for 6 hours and it would be perfectly stable then with nothing running temps as cold as can be it would crash . But now a new problem comes everything set to optimal settings (no OC) and it still is crashing! i reloaded the bios in case it was a glitch but still crashes out of nowhere. any guesses? Besides i have a ***** Mb?
