Advice on voltages monitoring

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, Ive come to a point which i dont trust the voltages im being shown by my bios and monitors. Im also at the point of getting very high in voltages but want to be more precise on what they are.

At 5ghz i set 1.45 after restart bios shows 1.48
cpuz shows 1.47 idle/1.512 spikes full load

so according to cpuz im getting spikes of .042?

anyway im trying push the envolope and want to go further (yes i know 1.5v is no mans land) I have a spare cpu but dont want to smoke this one right off. Just seems to me that .042 is kinda high jump.

Anyway back on to my question i want to use my multimeter to measure vcore so i can have a more accurate reading thus seeing if i do have room. So, do i ground the multimeter to the grounds on a molex or on the 20 pin or the ground provided with the refence points? My msi p67 gd55 has 6 voltage reference points labeled respectivly

I will see that spike when LLC enabled. I trust CPU-Z more accurate rather than BIOS. Actual measurement will show actual reading. Should go with the Ground (COM) of reference point.

you need a digital multi meter. They are cheap. And when you measure vcore you need to use a ground right next to it, well from the 8-pin as the CPu only draws main power from there
its isolated.
