With the voltage set at 2.2000v in the BIOS and CPU/NB LLC Enabled, I am assuming the voltage should be somewhere around 2.5v or so if it follows the same pattern and the CPU LLC. can someone confirm this for me?
and lastly, I current have my RAM downclocked below stock to make sure that the ram isnt whats causing instability. My question with this is... even if I have the RAM at stock or below stock specs, is it possible that I might have to increase DRAM voltage because of the overclocked NB?
1st. I really don't remember if the free version is different as far as showing the NB temp or voltage. I don't think it makes a difference. You can confirm if your mobo even has the sensors by comparing HWMonitor to Asus PC Probe II. If your board has them, PCPII will show them for sure.
If HWMonitor is NOT showing the changes you've made, it is possible that maybe it became corrupt and may need to be reinstalled. I've had that happen a few times myself. One more reason most Asus users have more trust with PC Probe II. It seems a little less glitchy.
2nd. Yes the CPU/NB Voltage may have that big of fluctuation, but usually only between the Min and Max as in after a reboot. If HWMonitor was started well after a reboot the difference may be lower till you start a stress test. Than it will act very similar the to Vcore.
3rd. Yes an increase in Dram voltage might be necessary. Two reasons, 1st because of the increased NB Freq, 2nd because your running 8GBs. Running more than 4GBs can be another reason for needing additional Dram voltage depending on the mobo. Being you have it under clocked I don't think it would be necessary but I wouldn't rule it out completely.
