Which Vcore reading is correct?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have my 3770k overclocked, and I am looking at Coretemp, and it reads that my volts dont go higher that 1.34v, but in asus ai suite it is showing a vcore reading of 1.368-1.370 at idle

I don't knnow what is correct, and what I need to do at this point.

I will generally trust cpu-z for the vcore reading, although keep in mind no software reads it perfectly, a multimeter is the only way to see the true vcore.

You might want to verify which one is right by testing with another monitoring application.

  • CPU-Z
  • Aida64
  • Hwmonitor
  • Hwinfo64
  • RealTemp



The worst program to use is Asus AI Suite


(Or very with a multimeter like FtW420 mentionned)

It's correct, why is it so much higher. I only have it set to 1.35 in bios

Really wouldn't suggest an AI suite. Do overclocking through BIOS. However, the voltage is adjusting based on either Vdroop or just on Load Line Calibration. Those throttle voltages purposely to keep temperatures under control based on the setting you have them at. But as I said, you can adjust all of this through BIOS, along with lower voltages and better settings.

Unless, you aren't using an AI suite and I am imagining things. biggrin.gif If not, then what I said about the LLC and Vdroop are still relevant.

Are you sure it's V_Core and not V_ID?

Coretemp is V_ID.

I'm not using ai suite, what settings do I need to get that down?

In bios I have manual selected at 1.350 but it is reading 1.372

AlphaC is right, Core Temp only shows the CPU VID.

Try aida64.

It can show both and its a pretty accurate monitoring program.
