Wacky volatage readings...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was questioning my idle and load temps, so I decided to check my vcore with the multi meter. Here is what I found:

DMM 1.371
CPU-Z 1.248
Everest 1.43
Bios 1.30

Any ideas why there i such a discrepancy? Sig rig.

Thanks.

Software voltage reading is rarely correct. I would go with BIOS/CPU-Z, in this case those are probably the most accurate.

1.248 (CPU-Z) is probably your vdrop of 1.30 (BIOS)

I agree, but the multi meter reads 1.371v. This discrepancy concerns me most
