Thanks for the heads up guys I think both of you are correct about this. Initially I thought voltages were being reset back to defaults whenever I booted to windows but found out this wasn't the case. I ran some tests with the voltages increased within bios even though cpuz, hwmonitor, and everest reports vcore as default 1.4 and got more stable results under prime95. So yea I'm pretty sure the sensors are being read incorrectly. However, I'm baffled as to why there isn't much info about this problem out there though. Wondering if I just got a bad board or if others are having this same issue?. My bios is the lastest by the way 17.7. Anyways, this was the first time I purchased a msi mobo but this whole incident really turned me off so I'm going to rma this board and try for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tent-_-text-_-
