Core Voltage Help!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
How do I see my core voltage? I read that the one downside of my mobo is it does not show it in the bios. I currently have it set to +0.165 (or there abouts) is this safe? I ran cpu-z and core temp, yet could not find where it says my core voltage. It says the core VID but that didn't change when I changed the voltage in the bios. thanks guys!

CPU-Z will show your cpu voltage in one of the screens. The VID is the voltage recomended for your chip not your current voltage.

.165v or 1.65v?

if the latter: that might be a little high for core voltage...

in the bios, I took the voltage off of 0.000 and bumped it up to 0.165. Any screenshots of where it says it in cpu-z, I feel like an idiot but I ant find it. thanks!
EDIT-
This is strange. I just downloaded cpu-z on another computer and it's there, plain as day, core voltage. On mine that window isn't there! I guess i'll try downloading it again, thanks guys!

At what point is adding voltage damaging/shortening the lifespan of a processor?
a 1.275 vid running at 1.42v with temps of ~43/~55 idle/load?

Most stickies say heavy overvoltage is death to a cpu. Trying to figure out what constitutes "heavy"

*edit: typo
