My voltages keep going up

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I noticed that about 5 or 6 hours after turning my computer on, that the voltages went from 1.35 to 1.44! That's what everest is telling me, so perhaps its a program thing, but I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem.
EDIT: I downloaded CoreTemp and that says that my voltage is still at 1.35v...which should I trust more???

I would trust core temp. I couldn't imagine your voltage fluctuating that much especially with a Gigabyte board.

Core Temp does not report voltage of your CPU. It gives you your stock voltage only.

If your vcore is not Auto, then that is your correct voltage; disregarding vdroop.

Try HWMonitor to check your voltage.

hmm...I used hwmonitor and it says the same thing as everest. I know that I didn't overvolt my cpu that much. The moment I powered up my pc and get into vista, hwmonitor says that it's hovering around the 1.42-1.44v mark. I know that I didn't set the voltage to auto in the bios and I think it's actually set to 1.375v.

Did you do a pencil volt mod by any chance? Graphite on that specific resister can overvolt your CPU.

I haven't done any kind of mod in my mobo. This is weird, because I think this was happening with my last mobo too (m2n4-sli). Do you think that the sensors are just off or something?

I have the same motherboard with a X2 4800+ OC'ed to 3.05 GHz. My voltage in the Bios is set to 1.5 BUT in CPU-Z and Hardware Monitor it settles in at 1.71 under load (Orthos). It idles about 1.55 to 1.6.

I have convinced myself not to worry as the temps are fine (55C under load). I've read about something called electron migration. According to a post on Nov 7, 2007 by member loggi!, even under extreme voltages, it will take 3+ years to have any effect on performance degradation. I don't believe your voltage readings are extreme.

You should install easytune 5 that's on your driver CD for your motherboard. I wouldn't suggest using it to Overclock but you can look at the cpu temp and cpu voltage and see what it is reading from the bios. Good Luck!
