CPUZ reports my voltage as 1.152V...wha?? Anyone have this problem?

Load temps are 30C with Coolermaster Hyper 212+
the 1.152V is probably just what your processor was using at the time. mines running at 1.442V but when it's not doing anything it only needs ~1.39-1.4

Time for an update

* Athlon II X4 type: Athlon II x4 620
* CPU stepping and mfg date: 2 and I'm not sure on the date.
* Revision: BL-C2
* Clock speed: 3250Mhz
* FSB x Multi: 250 x13.0
* Vcore: 1.32
* RAM speed: DDR3 1333 @ 1333Mhz
* NB speed: 2500Mhz @ 1.1875v
* HT Link: 2000Mhz
* Motherboard: ASRock M3A785GMH/128M
* Cooling method: Rocketfish Air

* OS: Windows 7 Pro x64
* CPU-Z validation w/ Cool N' Quiet: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1066264

CPU fan set to idle at 20%, only one 80mm case fan undervolted to 7v. Better airflow would lower the temps, but it's silent.

CoreTemp and Everest was reporting 1.275. Even with 100% load, CPU-Z still said 1.152V. Oh well, probably just a bug in CPUZ.

It could be Cool n Quiet doing its thing. You want it disabled if you're overclocking.

You only want it disabled while finding your final OC, after that CnQ is great. See my results above.

It was disabled.

CnQ is great if you run stock voltages. It becomes less effective I think when you overclock with voltages lower than stock...at least for me.

If I'm not mistaken, the 620 is runs at three voltage settings with three different clock speeds with CnQ enabled: 1.175, 1.300, and finally the voltage you inputted in the BIOS. I don't think you can change the 1.175 or 1.300 volts, can you?

Mine idles at 1.072v. It may use a scaling algorithm based on vcore setting in bios, but I don't know. I do know that with CnQ on my CPU idles at 1000mhz, 34C with the fan at 675RPM. Silence and energy saving is very important to me. Maybe the voltages are 1.200 and 1.075.
post #789 of 1595
Well, if enable CnQ in my mobo I can't adjust the voltage on the CPU. I know that to make mine stable I need 1.485v on the CPU so it's disabled on mine. Those voltage fluctuations can make a difference in silence and energy saving but if you're overclocking, I don't think the system is stable with voltage fluctuations.

Well, mine is rock solid. Passes Prime95 for as long as you care to run it, memtest86 for 3+ passes, and I've been using pretty much the same settings for over 4 months. I dropped my vcore and HT voltage one notch since my original OC, other than that it's the same. I've tried pushing it harder, but I can't get any real stability without railing up the voltage.
