Hey everyone, I have a quick question about Vcore.
If I set a Vcore of 1.4v in the BIOS and I receive 1.37v in windows, does this mean the CPU is receiving 1.4v internally?
Thank you.

Thank you.

What you are experiencing is called Vdroop, it is a result of Load Line Calibration.
Changing to a higher level of compensation will defeat this. You must be trying for a pretty hefty overclock to set 1.4 manually!

So I take it that the CPU is NOT receiving 1.4v when I set it to that in the BIOS, due to Vdroop? I'm having to use 1.4v with Extreme LLC to hit 1.37v for 4.5GHz @ high load.

Wow that is a lot of juice for 4.5! Whatever CPU-Z says is what it is receiving.

Well, I've tested 2 3930K's and they both needed this kind of voltage. I also looked online and others report the need of 1.41v, so I guess 1.37v is not too bad for the same overclock wink.gif

So just to confirm, If I set 1.4v in bios and CPU-Z reports 1.37v, the CPU is NOT receiving 1.4v in one form or another?

There is always a margin of error, and the only "real" way to know what voltages are being thrown at your CPU are with a DMM. The board that I have is notoriously bad for reading voltage, but most boards seem to be on point, so outside of your manufacturer being retarded...yes, what CPU-Z reads, is what you get.

Edit to add: 1.4 seems like a lot because on my 3570K, I only need 1.100

Thanks,
I always thought that whatever Vcore you set in the BIOS is what the CPU will receive on a hardware level despite the droop.
Lately I seem to be getting more Vdroop than usual. My rig never had any droop when LLC was used. Now I always drop by 0.3v when I'm at full load. I'm not sure when the issue started because I don't check CPU-Z and Prime95 every day.

So, my machine was stable at 4.4 Ghz with 1.28 turbo vCore, and lately I have been getting lockups in BF3. Reverting to stock CPU speeds solves the problem. The machine is still stable under P95 for several hours, however, 20-30 mins into a BF3 game I lock up.

I have tried bumping up turbo vCore by 2 bins, and yet it still locks up, only now it will last 30-40 minutes.

Any advice?

If the CPU is stable. RAM would be my next suspect. Is your RAM overclocked? have you tried sfc /scannow ? Have you run memtest? Usually if it is a graphics driver, you wont get lockups, just crashes. Any codes showing in the event viewer?

I know I have more questions than answers, but without more information, the problem is hard to diagnose.

I know I have more questions than answers, but without more information, the problem is hard to diagnose.
RAM is at stock speeds using the XMP profile in the BIOS. I will try some RAM tests.

Error messages:

Also, less than 10 minutes earlier a WHEA event was logged.

I'll try disabling Crossfire... Bloody ATI.

sfc /scannow Came up with no errors.
