CPU Overvolting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
After upgrading my 1055t to the fx-8120, I still seem to have a really odd voltage problem.

My motherboard seems to overvolt my cpu core voltage by a longshot (CPU-Z readings).

Right now, at 4.5Ghz, it's set to 1.4375 in BIOS and although CPU-Z's reading fluctuates, it sometimes reaches 1.5v under prime95 small FFT's!!! I thought my 1055t may be faulty, but that clearly isn't the case. Could my motherboard be malfunctioning? There is no option for LLC on the Gigabyte 990fxa series boards. May CPU-Z isn't working properly with my board?

Another thing... I'm running windows 8, and Gigabyte's motherboard chipset drivers refuse to install on this OS. Can drivers be the cause?

My Asrock board did similar things without LLC on the stock bios.

They then did a bios update giving LLC control.

Maybe gigabyte will do this?
