cpu-z vcore reading, question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I noticed on my setup, if i have the i7 920 c0/c1 at 3.6ghz for instance, set the voltage to auto, run Prime95 small ffts.. i see in cpuz the volts hitting 1.344..

I've seen others who have run at lower volts for this speed.. like say 1.25 or even less perhaps..

If set to auto, is cpuz showing essentially the max manual setting i'd want to change auto to, in the bios? Or should i experiment with lower volts until i find a stable one at a lower voltage.. coming down from 1.344 for instance?

Thanks for any tips...

(I also have the qpi set to 1.25 currently, with now, just 6GB (2bx3) of memory (and dram volts at 1.65, guessing i can drop this down maybe to 1.57), ill be switching to Gskill 1600mhz 999 1.5v 4GB x 3 ram in a day or so though)..

Auto settings tend to shoot the vcore way up. thats why your getting 1.344v in CPU-z, but dont take CPU-z as gospel as its just a program and not a real reading. id start at 1.32v and work down using Intel Burn Test to stress the CPU.

Set ITB to max settings and the threads to 8. just run it for 5 laps. thats all you need for starters. drop your vcore one unit at a time and test with every change for stability, when you get to a voltage you want (and is stable) use prime 95 for 4-8 hours to double check stability.
