Overclocked 4770k shows higher voltage than manual setting in Bios

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

So I've been overclocking my 4770k to 4.6Ghz with a manual set voltage of 1.275, but I noticed that CPU-z as well as HWMonitor are both showing my Vcore to be 1.280v at idle and 1.296v under load and HWMonitor shows VID of 1.275v. For the overclock I have only changed my CPU multiplier and set CPU Voltage to manual at 1.275v. Also CoreTemps is showing that my cpu power is only 2.5Watts under load which does not make any sense. For any of you that have an Asus Maximus VI board or have dealt with one, am I missing something? I would appreciate any help and I apologize if this is a stupid question, I am new to overclocking.

That is normal for the core voltage to be slightly higher than the VID. Don't know about core temp. Try HWInfo64 or AISuite to monitor your power.

I downloaded HWinfo64 and it is showing that the CPU package power is only 1.654watts on idle and 2.5watts under load. That cannot be right. Also when I would set my manual core voltage on my previous Asrock z87e-itx mobo the vcore was never higher than what I had set in the Bios. Does Asus automatically change manually set cpu voltatge? No way my Asrock mobo is better for setting voltages than my Asus Maximus Vi Formula right? I notice that according to HWinfo64 my 1st and 4th core are showing a VID of 1.277v and my 2nd and 3rd are at the correct 1.275v. Is there a way to change the VID going to each core so that they are all the same?
