Voltage issue w/ Sandy Bridge 2500 ASUS P8Z68-V LX

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey there guys, can someone please help me out.

I just bought myself a new computer:

ASUS P8Z68-LX
GSKILL 9-9-9-24 1.5V
Sandy Bridge i5 2500k
Cooling: Prolimatech Genesis

Now, I have a couple questions:

1. When I set my cpu voltage manually to 1.25V it will turn red and tell me the maximum is 0.65V and I have recently flashed my bios to its newest version to see if this persists. Sadly, it does.

My multiplier is 45, so 4500ghz.

2. So, I leave my voltage on AUTO, and using CPU-Z I observe the computer under load and the voltage reaches 1.35V and is 0.95V idling. Is this unhealthy for my CPU ?

3. My memory frequency is on auto and its 1800, can I set it manually to 2133 ?

I thought of perhaps downloading a windows 7 overclocking utility and maybe try to set the voltage to 1.25V through there ? perhaps it would work, not sure what to do.

1.35v is quite normal for CPU voltage. I wouldn't recommend trying to set anything outside of the BIOS other than GPU clocks/voltages because it's incredibly unreliable

I'd like to know this too. It's hard trying to show a friend how to OC when the voltage keeps going to 0.65.
