Vcore Measurement - What to, and what not do?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Because I know next to nothing about attacking stuff on motherboards with a multi-meter, I was just wondering what to do.

I know that my vcore measurement is on one of the leads of the inductors on my motherboard (but I don't know which one), is it ok to try both? Or will this blow something up? And can I basically try any component? Or will they brake if I try the wrong lead on something? And what do I use for neutral/ground on the DMM?

Thanks.

Here's my problem, someone said it was the left lead, but the board is mounted vertically in the picture so there is no left/right leads. So I don't know which one to use:

Ok the confusion is my interpretation of inductors... upon further inspection they do indeed have a left and right lead...

I tried the PWM's too but they gave wrong results (1.3v)

Results:

VID Default
Bios = 1.44v
Inductor = 1.45v

VID 1.400
Bios = 1.57
Inductor = 1.59

VID 1.425
Bios = 1.46
Inductor = 1.46


VID 1.450
Bios = 1.49
Inductor = 1.50


VID 1.475
Bios = 1.52
Inductor = 1.52


VID 1.500
Bios = 1.54
Inductor = 1.55


VID 1.525
Bios = 1.57
Inductor = 1.58


VID 1.550
Bios = 1.59
Inductor = 1.6

Default VID + 0.1v
Bios = 1.47
Inductor = 1.49

Default VID + 0.2v
Bios = 1.57
Inductor = 1.59

1.400 VID +0.1v
Bios = 1.47
Inductor = 1.49

1.425 VID + 0.1v
Bios = 1.54
Inductor = 1.55

1.450 VID + 0.1v
Bios = 1.54
Inductor = 1.55v

1.475 VID + 0.1v
Bios = 1.57
Inductor = 1.58v

1.500 VID + 0.1v
Bios = 1.59v
Inductor = 1.60v

1.400 VID + 0.2v
Bios = 1.57
Inductor = 1.59


I hope this can help someone other than myself. Used 7/11 BIOS. I'm quite impressed with the BIOS readings.

To measure yourself, put your Multimeter on 20v or 10v. Then do the following:
