Over Voltage LEDS light up on Motherboard

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure what section i could have posted this, so i apologize before hand.

My motherboard is a Gigabyte x58a-UD3R, i recently OC'd my cpu to 3.42Ghz and set my Vcore to 1.15v after i did it with 1.20v and the CPU over voltage lights are both on:

green (level 1)
Yellow (level 2)

My DDR voltage indicator is also at green (level 1)



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Is this supposed to happen? Because when my cpu was stock settings, and Vcore was set to auto, the lights were off, but on auto voltage my voltages where higher at 1.24v during load and the lights were off.

I am a noob to OC'ing btw.

First of all, your at 3.4GHz with 1.5VCore? That should hit at least 4.2GHz at that voltage. You could hit 3.4GHz at stock voltages. Nevermind, I see it says 1.15VCore, must be a typo in your sig rig. 1.15 is great for 3.4GHz

As to the lights, sometimes lights come on if you touch anything in the BIOS, CPU related or not.

EDIT: Gaaahh - just realized I missed my 1,234th post. Now I can't make a "Yay 1234 posts thread"

LOL, yea my bad, it was a typo, i fixed it.

I initially set it at 1.00v but i got an error in prime on thread 5 and 6 after several minutes.

So i bumped it up to 1.15 and i only did like hour and a half prime and everything seemed fine. As for the lights, i should not be worried then?
