Isn't my voltage WAY to high?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i ive been having loads of problems all day trying to sort out wyh cpu-z said that my multiplier was down to 14.

I installed a new pu-z from the downloads on this site and my multiplier is back up and im back to 3.4ghz but my voltage is at about 2.68

Is this not wayyyyy to high???? I think my voltage is on auto in bios. My temperatures are not increasing though.

Any suggestions welcome

It's probably one of two things - 1) you're mixing up vdimm (RAM voltage) with vcore (CPU voltage) or 2) the vcore sensor isn't reading properly. If your Prescott was running at 2.68 volts, you would have a rather nasty burning smell in your room.

Try running Asus Probe. It'll read values on an Asus board as well as any software package.
