Voltages?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am becoming more and more confused by my voltage readings. I set my vcore to 1.3 and it reads as 1.3 in my bios. Core temp always reads 1.3 no matter what I set it to, and CPU-Z always reads around 1.265. PC Wizards always shows 1.17 vcore. Is there maybe a setting in the bios that limits or locks my vcore? I've tried deleting the programs and reinstalling them/downloading them. I dunno what to make of it.

are you on a brisbane? if so maybe update Bios to make sure it fully accepts it.

Also all apps misread my voltage (im on a Orleans not brisbane though), they think its either 1.35 or 1.425 but its 1.375

It is normal for voltage to drop when CPU is not underload. Run Orthos and then check your Vcore.

None of the voltage readings in any program ever change to reflect my bios settings. Same deal when i'm in orthos.

Core Temps voltage that your talking about is actually the CPU VID, this is the voltage required for your processor at stock speeds. The lower that is the better the chip you have in terms of overclocking.

Might be software bugs, have you downloaded the latest versions? In the end, it doesn't really matter. If your processor was not getting enough voltage under load, you would have noticed issues by now.
