Okay, one problem though seems like your CPU-Z is acting up or you have an UNBELIEVABLE chip! 4.4GHz @ 1.104v seems quite incorrect. Have you tried redownloading cpu-z? If not, please do try to.

I'm running it at the moment getting higher temps than before. also my vcore has hit 1.36 but so far no bsod etc. lets hope for the best!

Noooo to see the voltage on my chip i need to look at HWmonitor under CPU it's a known bug and i havent seen a version of CPU-Z that solves it

that's perfectly fine IBT is known to make the cpu run as hot as possible.

oh okay, that's fine however I do recommend downloading RealTemp3.69 It's great for monitoring your temps and finding out your VID which we will need for Offset voltage.

i downloaded realtemp 3.69 no sign of VID
also downing easytune 6 to get better voltage readings

You just have to click on that little clock in the top right to get a VID reading.

Okay just for future reference (for the both of you) CPU-Z does not play nice with Z68 Gigabyte boards. It will NOT give you the correct voltage read out, ever. So either use EZTune or Hardware Monitor to determine and monitor your load, idle, and offset voltages because either one will work, but CPU-Z will not work for voltages, everything else? Good to go..

Ok running now with the new tools.
IBT
Easytune6
CPU-Z
RealTemp 3.69.1

Running the 15 IBT tests left that i had from running it earlier and will post a screen when it's done

Forgive me, I didn't know CPU-z had an issue with z68 boards. On another note use whatever you want to use as long as it can provide reliable info. I use realtemp for temp, vid etc. and CPU-z for everything else.

No apology needed my friend, most people don't know unless they own a Gigabyte board!

As for using whatever you want, I can agree, but with the Gigabyte boards he'll need to use EasyTune6 or Hardware monitor for voltage read-out. Everything else is optional.
