Voltages jumping around

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been watching my voltages and they seem to jump around a bit.
Vcore goes from 1.14 to 1.27 and everywhere in between adn often at an idle.
The +12 goes from 11.99 to 12.04 often the same time the other changes.So far that is all I have noticed moving.I just changed the PSU today to the Antec listed in my sig.With the 430 watt antec everything was steady.
Should I worry about the small jump arounds?

it may be a cause for alarm, though my rig when i run ati tool my 12v goes from 11.97 to 11.78 etc. but if your vcore is jumping around that cant be safe for the proc, look into it see if its with just that psu check with another and see if it's somthing else

Well Here is what I have been doing the last few hours,playing games.Stressing it and checking the Vcore and 12 volt.When under load the 12v is 11.99 and vcore is 1.26 when not under load vcore is around 1.14-1.18 always between there and the 12v is 12.04.The vcore jumps around between the 1.14-1.18.I have been thinking about it and messing with it an I don't think its going to be a big deal.The 12v stays at 12.04 when idle also.
The AVcc stays at 3.22 the entire time as well.
This is a smart power PSU nto sure what it means and don't care enough to look it up but does it have anything to do with the jumping around?The last PSU kept everything the same but it was underpowered though.

It is called intel speed step. It lowers the vcore of the proc when it is not in use to lower the heat and electricity it uses. I do not think you have a problem, as speed step lowers and raises the voltage dynamically, which is why you see voltage fluctuations. This is ofcourse you havent disabled it through the bios.

Was disabled but there was something else out of place,done frogot since I am kind of medicated at the moment but now my voltage is as follows and stable.
Vcore 1.26-1.28 (really not enough to alarm me with that changing around between the 2)
12V 11.99
AVcc 3.22

Thanks for helping me understand this stuff adn I gave you the Rep you deserved
