So in the bios my Vcore option is set to 1.550 (stock 1.525), on a 800mhz OC. (3.2, I like it here because i need 1.600 to hit 3.4). The problem is that in the bios monitor its getting readings of ~1.660. So its about 0.1 volt off. Not much...but that makes a difference in some cases. How far off is the Vcore setting/vcore readings on your computer?

E6300 + P5B Deluxe:<br />

Vcore in BIOS- 1.3825V<br />
Vcore read by CPUZ- 1.344V<br />
<br />
Not a difference of .1V like yours <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />, but its about a .04V difference.<br />
What sucks about Asus boards is this Vdroop almost all of their motherboards have, besides that they are great.

So do you think a new psu, like a thermaltake purepower (which i can get for 50 bucks) could fix this?

Its not your PSU, its the actual motherboard that causes the "droop" <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Mine is supposed to be 1.75v and in BIOS and speedfan, everest etc I get the same reading. However, my crappy PSU makes it jump by up to .03v either way. In fact, Everest is giving me 1.7v right now..

</div>Its a pretty risky mod, probably not worth it tbh, ASUS boards are renowned for vdroop. <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
