If I want to leave the i5 2500k @ stock...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
can I still set the vcore manually just to make sure the motherboard isn't overvolting the CPU? When I left the Vdimm setting on auto... it would give the RAM 1.59v instead of the 1.5v that my RAM was meant to have. what the hell? Doesn't this mean my ASROCk Extreme4 could be overvolting nearly every component on my computer without me knowing?

If i do set it manually, I set the Vcore on 1.2 right? And isn't there some option which lets it vary by .05 volts or something? Do i need to change that also?

If on auto, guaranteed it will be too much.

Set the vcore it's possible lowest and stress test with prime95 max memory to see if it's stable.

did you have bad experiences on auto settings before? what is the setting that changes voltage automatically when your processor speeds up? PLL volt? Vdroop? do i ever need to change either of those settings @ stock or @ mild 4 ghz overclock?
