What is my real vcore?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I apologize for these multiple threads.

I set the vcore to 1.4 in Bios, but it comes up as around 1.34 in speedfan and cpuz. Which one is the vcore people refer to?

Um bios is just a setting speedfan and CPUZ will give you a more accurate REAL vcore reading, but if your worried about it look in the bios hardware monitor it will show you a pretty accurate reading of all voltages, and im not talking about where you set the voltages Im talking about the hardware monitor. The only way to get a better reading is by using a multimeter.

The 680i board has a v-droop issue that is standard across all boards currently (that I have seen.) Basically, whatever you set it at in the bios, subtract .06 and that will be your true voltage. This is also reflected in the bios. 1.34 is your current voltage.
