Novice overclocker, Voltage questions...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I'm running an E6750 (2.66ghz stock) at 3.6ghz

I can get it stable with the Vcore in BIOS at about 1.500V.

However, in CPU-Z the Core Voltage is shown as:

1.392V idle
1.384V load

Why are these SO much lower than my BIOS Vcore setting?

Under full load my temps in Core Temp peak right around 60*C

Please help, thanks!

Is it normal that the difference would be this much?

Which voltages are accurate?

Is it safe to set my BIOS voltages past 1.5 if the board is only getting ~1.4V?

Also, i thought the Vdroop was the difference between the 1.392 and 1.384, not necessarily the drop off from the 1.5V?
