Unless your cpu is watercooled, i suggest staying at or below 1.4v. Disable Turbo. Keep your temps at load below 50C.

I suspect the mosfets are getting too hot that is making your cpu throttle. If not that, then it is the cpu temp itself.

My temps have never gotten above 40C.

I had one of those motherboards. I'd say that at best it might get 3.5 ghz out of the 960T .

They tend to overvolt terribly - I ended up putting a 245 regor on it , it would do the same with the dual core. But it ran so cool it didn't bother much.

The 960T has turbo boost by design. When the vcore is set at 1.4+ and turbo kicks in, the vcore will increase to keep up and make the boost work. at least that's how i understand it. that's why cpuz is showing 1.5v. You need to lower the vcore or your motherboard might go and take other components with it.

I strongly suggest keeping the cpu at stock. a boost of 3.4GHz is still faster than your last cpu.

Here you can ask too . . .

So what is the difference in Core VID and Vcore. I have set the voltage under 1.475 but HWinfo64 shows 2 different ones. The Core VID and Vcore. I attached a photo in a earlier post on this thread.

Everything is set to stock settings and it still shows a high Vcore.

Take a look at my bios before i Changed the settings to stock.

Change the VID lower until you get CPU-Z to read 1.4v.

I would also check with some other monitoring software that is not based on CPU-Z, like SpeedFan.

Its possible that idle voltage is that high to compensate for voltage droop under load (bad motherboard design).

^this. Use other app like HWINFO to verify readings. Again, I suggest to keep the cpu at stock.

As a bonus, ANY AM3+ board designed for FX chips should OC the hell out of that CPU.

I have an old Asrock 970 Extreme 3 that can OC Phenom II chips to the moon even though it struggles with FX chips.
