Noobie Voltage Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I set my CPU Core to 1.4 in Bios, and it reads 1.36 on CPU-Z. Is there an explanation for that discrepancy.

Sorry if this has been asked a million times - i searched a few times to no avail.

Its called vdroop and perfectly normal. Some mobos have it worse than others. My Gigabyte runs 1.488 under load when set to 1.504 in BIOS. Some boards have a mod to fix it, but it usually requires soldering and such.
