I`m hoping somebody can show me the error of my ways. I was overclocking my 1055T. For starters, at stock, or `normal` settings as it`s referred to in the bios, my cpu was set at 1.325v. And i understand that turbo core sets the voltage at 1.45... Anyways, I wanted to up my voltage manually to 1.45 with turbo core off of couse, to try to get a 4GHz overclock over the stock 2.8GHz. But when I upped my voltage, from the stock 1.35 by .125, I should have achieved 1.45, correct? But instead when I loaded windows and opened up HWMonitor, my cpu voltage was shown at 1.58v!!! I was in disbelief, and luckily I caught it before my Cpu popped. I rechecked my bios only to find that it updated my `normal`voltage to 1.45v instead of the previous 1.325v, and added another .125 ontop of that to achieve 1.575ish, or 1.58v as it showed in HWMonitor. I`m hoping I`m just retarded and screwed something up, and not that my motherboard sucks and I`m going to be stuck with buggy voltage for the next couple years. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I am by no means a pro overclocker. I have overclocked all of my previous systems with ease though, with the help of forums such as this, and my old asus M2N32 would never behave like this. I`m starting to wish I had forked out the cash for the asus equivalent of this board. Note: 'Normal CPU Vcore' is 1.325 in bios, currently showing 1.360 in HWMonitor, Aida64 Extreme, AMD OverDrive and EasyTune6 (Gigabytes overclocking utility) Why the large difference?
