Question about Vcore

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Howdy, I have seen a few posts on this here and there but wanted to make double sure.

Here is a screeny. My vcore on cpuz is 1.32ish, and on cpuid hardware monitor roughly the same. Now on the Pc Probe II it is showing 1.51. I am inclined to go with cpuz but want to make sure. I have put my voltage setting to 1.450 but it shows 1.32 +/- in cpuz.

Here are my specs

Amd 5000+ BE
M2N-Sli Deluxe
Corsair Xms2 2x2gb

Thanks for your help in advance

CPU-Z is right.

If you set it to 1.45 in the BIOS and CPU-z says 1.32 then it is like PC Probe is wrong. The difference in setting and the value in cpu-z is due to vdroop and is perfectly normal.

Thanks for your replies! I wanted to toss in another question if I may?

This is my first build / first oc. I have been getting variances in the vcore, I have added a screenshot of it. I am not sure if it is a problem with the program or it is a actual problem I need to address.

Basically, I get alarms a few times a day from Pc Probe about the Vcore, I have seen it as high as 6+. The screen that I have attached shows 4. Also please note the high end for the cpu temp. 207c?!

I have also attached a screen of the cpuz. As of now I have the vcore in the bios set to 1.30.

I am not sure if it's a problem with the mobo, psu or just a weird bug with the program. If you notice as well all the voltage's on the high end are pretty high. Everything in this system is new so if needed I can rma to get the problem fixed.

Asus M2N-SlI deluxe
Amd 5000 BE
Corsair 750 psu
Corsair Xms2 4gb

Thanks again for your help

Tnaz, if your vcore is over 1.4 or 1.45 volts in the BIOS then CPU-Z will not display the correct value. I'm not sure if it's a bug in the software but this happens regularly. I'd go by what is displayed in your BIOS.
The Brisbane core is also known to display false idle and load temperatures. Apparently the sensor is not calibrating correctly or the motherboard has some type of problem reading the sensor correctly. As long as you have the right amount of thermal compound applied and adequate airflow then you should be fine. Make sure also your HSF is mounted correctly. If you decide to take the vcore beyond stock then I'd recommend going with a new cooler.

Hope this helps
