Which vcore should we really care about ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok everbody out there has max. min. voltage values for their cpu's. Mine is 1.3625v. But when I set my vcore to 1.36 in bios with disabled llc cpu-z shows 1.32-1.33. And underload it even drops to 1.30-1.29. That means even I set my cpu voltage to 1.40 ( 0.40 more than max limit ) in bios cpu z shows 1.33 in windows.

So does that mean for the max cpu voltage reference we should take cpu-z into consideration and not the value in bios ? Does that mean we are still in the safe zone with vcore set to 1.4v in bios since it actually means 1.33v in cpu-z underload in windows ?

That drop is vdroop. I go by cpuz voltage under full load as my voltage.
