Thread Starter 
It seems no matter what I change my Vcore setting to in bios- asus probe or cpu-z show my voltage always around 1.4V. any ideas?
many thanks

Welcome to oc.net. Well when changing these settings in the bios make sure you ''Save'' before yo exit the bios. Also it is known for some software to read the Bios wrong and give you misreadings.

i definitly save the settings in bios. is the only way to have "correct" readings of voltage and stability by taking readings directly with voltmeter. are no software readings really accurate? i have noticed that my voltage seems to jump around alot (up to 0.1v variations) and perhaps is affecting stability.

spud welcome to overclock.net please take the time to click on the USER CP at the top and fill out your system specs.. it will serve you and us better for futur help .. use your sig line for something fun.. try disableing your speed stepping on your motherboard that might drop your voltage when idle if you have it set higher in the bios..

Also after changing the bios reboot go back in the bios and check in your hardware monitor in the bios, if it changes then its a software misread.

If still didn't change, then try downloading and installing Speedfan, it will tell you the VCORE.

am already using speedfan.
tried a rather large jump in voltage and there it seems to read. but it drops when cpu is hard at work to around normal settings. is it normal that it would drop like that as it working harder?
i guess i need a better psu.

yep thats the speed stepping.. that or your board has a bad droop.. which a lot of asus boards do.. try checking the voltmod section for a droop mod that will help stablize your vcore and system
