FSB volts reading incorrect??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, i am running XFX 790i ultra motherboard and have been overclocking for a while now and am wondering if anyone has noticed this problem? Both HWmonitor and OCCT report my CPU FSB voltage to be 1.37v, but in the bios i can set it anywhere from 1.1 to 1.45 i think, yet the reaqding still stays at 1.37 with these two programs. Is doing my head in as i cant seem to get any more stable, but still get the odd freeze in bad company 2. Any thought would be great, cheers

1.37 is way too high, unless you have a really hefty overclock on your cpu. Most hardware monitoring progams are very innacurate at voltage readings. I would definately make sure you have a value dialed in manually in bios, dont use the auto setting, just to be safe.

Thanks for reply. And yes i know 1.37 is way too high but i dont know why BOTH programs are reporting that when i am only using 1.15 or 1.2, manually set in bios. A very odd observation thats all, am curious to see if anyone else has had something similar.

Both programs read from the same sensor, and that sensor is inaccurate.
