Which should I be refering to when figuring safe maximum settings for my processor? I have a Prescott 650 currently set in BIOS to run at 1.45v however I notice in my system moniter(uguru) that cpu voltage is on average 1.38v with load.

Is it safe to assume it's the uguru voltage reading that I want to keep track of, and if so isn't 1.4v supposed to be the MINIMUM that prescotts run at?

thats common, the voltage is usually off a bit in the software compared to what the setting is i nthe bios, its nothing to worry about really
, but if you think it could be a problem upgrade your PSU you get better 12v rils

You'll also likely see a bit of a dip from idle to load conditions. Although a small dip is common and fine, a large dip is a cause for concern (either the PSU or mobo could be the issue).

That's kind of borderline. If you start to notice instability, that could be a cause. My one rig shows greater droops than that and is rock solid, so it's something to be aware of at this point and not necessarily be concerned about it (for now at least).
