Cpu z is telling me 1.21-1.28
and coretemp says VID is 1.3250
Btw, I remember something in overclocking guides, that you disabled a bunch of stuff to make the load on the cpu better?
which way for arrows on HSF again?
Since you're on everything at stock, your vcore should be on Auto in BIOS. Your stock vcore is 1.3250. It is possible to Overclock while Undervolting. I am running at 2.9Ghz with 1.22vcore - Stock: 2.13Ghz with 1.3250vcore.
You could go into your BIOS and drop down to 1.3vcore right now.
Yes, trust the vcore that your BIOS tells you
I don't know what to disable to make a CPU load better. You may want to change PCI-E Freuqnecy from Auto to 100MHz in BIOS.
Make sure the arrows on the heat sink is pointing outward/away. So, if you connect all the arrows together, it should form a circle around the HSF.
EDIT: It also helps to know what motherboard you own.
