Your bios Vcore settings should show different color schemes and I am just hazarding a guess that you are way in the red. Just by glancing at the first post in this forum you can see most people have their voltage under 2. Try dropping it down to 1.3 and see if that is stable, if it works try 1.275 and keep dropping it incrementally. I may be way out to lunch and confusing your voltage reading, but 2.275 seems ridiculously high. If I am confused about this, I am receptive to being corrected. Good luck.
Oops. The 2.275 was a typo. My actual Voltage set in BIOS is 1.275. Sorry about that. Looking at the OCCT chart, the voltage it measures is about 1.248 starting out, but drops within 1.195 and 1.177 during the actual test.
My computer specs are:
CoolerMaster vented case with 5 120mm fans (lots of air flow)
Corsair 750W PSU
ASRock 4Core1600P35-WiFi+ motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5GHz CPU
Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU cooler
2x2GB OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2 PC2 8500 RAM
2x Western Digital Caviar 640 GB SATAII HDD
EVGA 512MB GeForce 8800 GT video card
Pioneer 20X SATAII DVDRW
Thanks a lot for your input.Edited by okamico - 8/1/08 at 5:29pm
