Stock i7 960 core voltage fluctuating from .944 to 1.224

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So CPUz shows my core voltage sitting at .944 idle, and 1.224 when I run Prime 95.

I haven't over clocked, I left all bios settings on default, except for I enabled XMP. Some of my bios settings are:
Speed step is enabled
Turboboost enabled
Xtreme phase full power-auto
CPU voltage-auto
QPI/DRAM core voltage 1.4

My temps are fine, is this normal with speed step/turboboost? Or is something horribly wrong?

Is LLC enabled in your BIOS? Could also (and likely is) be C-States or SpeedStep.

Not sure, Load line calibration is set to auto by default.

COuld be just Speedstep, since itll lower your mhz and lower mhz is lower voltage (save power)

I tried disabling/enabling LLC, and tried disabling speed step but it still fluctuates as before. Sits at .944 idle and gets up to 1.224 when I load Prime 95.

In Windows Power options, set for "Performance" instead of "Balanced".
