At the bottom of the picture it says Normal CPU Vcore - 1.4760V which sounds a whole lot like what it would be at right now, now that I think of it that seems like the max safe voltage. So, I downloaded SpeedFan and it shows my Vcore1 at 1.30V basically, but it changes, like it's at 1.22 right now. Vcore2 is 1.50v. For some reason a few programs pick up my CPU temperature as exactly 80 degrees... and it never changes. Core Temp, however, shows the right temp which is currently 20 degrees with a max of 25. Core Temp also shows my voltage as the same as Vcore1 did in SpeedFan, so I assume that's really what my voltage is thankfully.

Turn off cool and quiet in bios and C1e support. Find what LLC controls your bios has. Make sure you get some cooling on the VRM's,prefereable with heatsinks like these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012

You should be able to get that chip to 4.0GHz,which will be plenty fast for anything you might need. thumb.gif

The picture of speedfan shows that your vcore1 (cpu) is at 1.22v which is very low. On the second picture of your bios did you increase the voltage to 1.47v or was it set to that at stock. you should just have to hit enter after you select a voltage and it will save that setting. also your nb is quite low you really want it as close to 2ghz as possible.

Read the second post, went to overclock (while reading it on my phone) got to the end, everything was going well and boom, doesn't tell you how to raise voltage. That is the only thing I need to know right now. So, instead of reverting to defaults I decided to overclock to 3.3 again, 3.359.81 to be exact. I'm not stress testing it or anything because it's not necessary, I've ran it at 3.3 before and it did perfectly fine, also the max temp currently is 31 which is about 6 degrees higher than when I started my computer at 2.8. I'm getting 31 max on core temp and speedfan and everything seems perfectly good. Now, I just need to know how to raise the voltage. In BIOS there is an option called CPU Voltage Control... this sounds exactly like what I need. So when I go to it it lets me raise the voltage by 0.025 and stuff like that. The problem with that is, raising it by the lowest you possibly can (0.025 I believe) brings it up to 1.5.... So what the ****. Do I need to bring it down? -0.025? Or is that just not what I'm supposed to be messing with? It says Normal CPU Vcore is 1.4750V when at default (stock) as well, I didn't mess with it. I need to know how to raise my voltage, that is all I need to know.

Also, now my voltage is staying at 1.3500 in Core Temp and 1.34 in SpeedFan. I kept all the voltage stuff on auto in the bios. I also disabled the core performance boost. It's all staying at a constant 3359.81mhz.

I've never worked on a gigabyte board, so im limited in how i can help in that regard, but after a quick look at this: http://www.jzelectronic.de/jz2/html/bios-help-ex58-ud5.php you should have to switch "CPU vcore" from auto to manual you should be able to type a voltage in if so 1.45v if not use the "-" and "+" keys that will bump it up in small increments, hit f10 to save and reboot.

Alright, I really appreciate the help you've given. I'm going to have to make a new thread asking specifically about voltage because that bios is older than mine and looks nearly entirely different. I wish it would simply show my Vcore like that at the correct voltage and everything but of course, it has to be more complicated than that.
