Weird voltage p4 630

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
im lookin to upgrade my mobo from my dell 9100 and take my 630 out for the new board. i was in cpu-z checking double checking everything to make sure the board im going to get is compatible and i noticed that my voltage reads 3.072v. Shouldn't this be down around the 1.5v range? just curious if dell did somthing to this particular cpu or board to make it run that high

Welcome to Overclock.net rocklobsta1109.

If I were you I'd sell the whole system and start from scratch, Intel just did a huge price cut on Dual Core CPUs and with a nice motherboard you could end up having a higher overclock than what the 630 could possibly do on air.

i could do that but im really tryin to stick to my tight budget and would like to use this card if possible. do you think i would run into any problems if i took this chip off and put it on a new board? im currently looking at the asus p5n32-sli with intentions of moderately overclockin that cpu to 3.4ghz or so for a bit of extra performance. just curious as to why it read over 3v's im sure the DDR2 ram isn't liking that too much. the system is stock by the way.

thanks for the welcome im sure ill be around here more

I would try to check that voltage in a few more places. Bios? Speedfan? Pc Wizzard? See if any of them confirm what you saw in Cpuz. Also, make sure you have the latest version of cpuz.

For performance and rock solid overclock stability, nothing beats an ASUS P5WD2-Premium or the P5WD2-E Premium.

Never consider an nForce 4 for overclocking, not that I've had experieced one myself but due to the experieces that other overclockers have had with this board I have avoided like the plague.

As for tight budget, how much of a budget are you talking?

Also, if you replace the MoBo, you will have to expend an extra $99 for an OEM full copy of WinXP because the Dell recovery disk may not work with the new MoBo. That's why I was saying sell the entire system.

CPU-Z is not entirely correct most of the time, I have an ABIT board with a 915P chipset and the Vc always reads @ 2.82v when in fact it's at 1.400. But your case and my case are the only ones that I know of. I'm yet to see someone else having this tiny issue.

ahh that was the problem thank u very much i was gettin worried there for a bit. pc wizard reads in at 1.356v which is exactly what i was lookin for. weird that cpu-z would read that high.

I didn't look in intel because I promised I'd never go to their website again. But i did look at that processor spec on newegg and it says 1.25-1.388V. I really doubt that the cpuz number is correct. Sometimes you get bizarre readings when you have a proprietary MB like that Dell must have. I really would look in the bios and see what it says there.

As for taking that cpu out and putting it in another motherboard, It should be fine and that 630 will overclock up lots higher than you said you wanted to go.

Now let me put in my plug for putting that cpu into an nforce4 MB. Take a look at the MSI P4n SLI-FI. It is a very good board with very good bios options and lots of options. That cpu will rub circles around what it used to do if you just get it out of an intel chipset.

my goal is to use as many of my existing parts i have to build a new comp. i have an extra unused copy of xp layin around. as for budget, the mobo i get will be a b-day present so thats why i can go pretty much all out on whaever board i want. im lookin to keep total cost around $400-$500 in stuff i acutally have to buy at most. i know im goin to need a new case because the new 9100 case i have is btx i believe and a new psu because i plan on running 2 7600gt's in sli. im not figuring the cost of the 2nd 7600 into my budget yet but down the road.

One more thing then......I have all Antec powersupplies, but i wouldnt buy another. My opinion of their quality went down the drain when we had one lose the power switch after a month. Plus there are horror stories about 5v problems in them for the last year. I actually have my speedfan set up to monitor voltages and scream at me if they even think about going out of spec. So for what it is worth, that is my 3 cents on PSUs.

My neighbor is really high on Seasonics.....not sure if i spelled that right.

Antec!!
