Solved Recommended CPU Voltage? Tags: CPUs Last response: January 26, 2014 5:44 PM in CPUs Share gumbykid a b à CPUs January 25, 2014 8:17:18 PM System specs: Athlon II x3 455 3.3ghz CPU Antec Basiq 550w PSU PNY 4gb(1x4gb) 1333mhz RAM GTX 660 2gb GPU Hitachi 250gb HDD Asrock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard Cpu-world recommends: 0.85V - 1.4V core voltage. HWMonitor tells me: CPU VCORE: Value = 1.464 Min = 1.456 Max = 1.480 Do those seem too high? The mobo takes care of the voltages and i'm not sure to trust it. If so, what's a good voltage for it to run at stock speeds? Also, the CPU is made to run at 95W, but HWMonitor tells me it is running at 108.75W. Is that of any concern? Thanks.

After you do that run Prime95 for a couple hours and watch your temps. Share gumbykid a b à CPUs January 26, 2014 2:59:16 PM Will do, thanks. The wattage is fine too, right? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer ewok93 a c 389 à CPUs January 26, 2014 5:44:00 PM Yeah, should be. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
