GA-P67A-UD7 - Which Voltage?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have a Core i7-2600K on a Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7 that I am playing with overclocking. With all of this confusion about voltages I want to keep it under 1.35V until it is all sorted out.

Which voltage should I be concerned about? Any insight is appreciated. It seems they all read something different.

i would trust CPUz for a more accurate Vcore voltage.

there is also some possibilty of a BIOS bug on gigabyte boards where the Vcore is sometimes displayed incorrectly. many other people are experiencing this. Vcore is listed around 1.0xx volts but the CPU voltage says 1.3xx volts. i would look to see if gigabyte is going to release an updated bios any time soon and update as soon as you can.

CPUz is trustworthy.

1.044 doesn't seem correct. It doesn't seem to change when I change the multiplyer. The BIOS is also reading higher.

Gigabyte has a new beta bios I am going to give a shot.

With Gigabyte motherboards, CPUz shows the VTT voltage. To see the correct vcore, use Easy Tune 6. As in the screen shot, Easy Tune shows 1.26v as CPU Voltage, its your correct voltage.

Thanks for the information. Any idea what CoreTemp is reading VID as 1.3461 V? That gets me nervous...

On the other hand, 1.35 does not seem correct either. How high are you able to OC at that BIOS setting? My UD3 can get me only up to 4.2 or so.But we have lots of people (with other manufacturers' motherboards) right here in this forum reporting being able to reach 4.5 with a lot lower voltages. There's one guy showing a screenshot of 4.3 at 1.18 V, one guy claiming 4.5 at 1.24 V, and one guy claiming 4.8 at 1.32 V. So either I am the unluckiest person on this forum, or there's something wrong with voltage settings in Gigabyte boards.

Don't worry, I am just as unlucky as well then. It is hard to tell what we are measuring? What are you going off of?

if youre worried about your CPU (and i would be if i just bought a shiny new SB chip), leave it at stock for a bit and see if there is a bios update within a few days.
