Since what really matters is core voltage under load what people post is going to be what some utility reports (like Everest,PCProbe,the utility that come with the ROG boards).I would not put it past some benchers to actually measure with a DMM and post that voltage.It is kind of hard to get loaded voltage out of the BIOS (perhaps there is a way but I am unaware of it)

EDIT: People may post what the set in BIOS but also post what it ends up under load all in the same thread.If only one voltage is posted I bet it is what a utility other than the BIOS is reporting.

Thanks, repped! Is it normal for my BIOS setting to be a lot higher than what it actually is under load? BIOS is 1.4 and windows shows 1.3 under load. Just curious!

ive noticed with my 2500k CPUZ reads anywhere from .106-.066v lower then what i have it set to in bios. it never hits the actual bios vcore setting under full load. when the CPU is idling it sits at the bios set voltage.

on the otherhand i have a 960t that goes way over what i actually set in bios. im not familiar with AMD overclocking so i havent really messed with it. but thats something ive noticed.
