Help Understanding HWMonitor vcore

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello. I recently starting learning about overclocking, and decided to give the ASUS Turbov EVO a whirl, and i'm now having some trouble understanding the results in HWMonitor. I'm just trying to see what my core clocks have been changed to, and more importantly, what my vcore is. I'd much appreciate it if someone could point out on the HWMonitor screenshot I took, which numbers I should be referencing? The only vcore I see looks like it is for the motherboard. I feel like an idiot for having to ask this, but I've searched the forums for a while with little success. In case it makes any difference, I'm running a 4670k on a Asus z-87-A motherboard. Thanks!

I hope HWMonitor is not reporting your CPU vcore correctly. Normally the vcore number in the first Voltages section refers to the voltage going to your CPU. At 1.712 volts, I am pretty sure that HWMonitor is wrong. Give CPU-Z a try to see what it reports for voltage. Are you using the latest version of HWMonitor? Sometimes it takes a while for software to be updated so it correctly reads the newer boards.

thanks for the reply! that 1.712v is what prompted me to post the question. Since the Core Voltage in CPU-Z fluctuates, I'm assuming I have to stress the CPU to get the voltage, right? I do have the newest version of HWmonitor, I will see if I can find an older version and see if it gets reported differently.
