I am overclocking my CPU right now and I open CPU-Z and basically is says Vcore is 1.232 But I set the Vcore in bios 1.32 with fixed option enabled. Witch is telling the truth? Is my Vcore what i set it in bios or what it says in CPU-Z.

Ow ya it sometimes shows the clocks funny and multi as 44 instead of 45. But after a while it goes to 45, then goes to 44.

Thanks also (hitting 2 birds with 1 stone here) should I lap my CPU for cooler temps?

you should post your system parts in your sig first off, so we can see what components you have. Sometimes it isn't the program rather the board which isn't fully supported in all aspects.

Also on intel it isn't odd for vdroop to drop the voltage from what you set. Do you have LLC?

I have the Rig up but for some reason It is not showing up in my Sig. My board is a ASrock Z68 Professional GEN3. Also LLC?

Edit: I got it to work.

Thing is My system was unstable like 5 times, I set the Vcore higher and still unstable.

LLC is Vdroop control, set it to level 1 or level 2.
