i just wanna ask on how to improve the Vcore of my motherboard and my -5 volts rails , the V core is fluctuating too much . i set it in bios as 1.825 and my MBM detects it as highest 1.72 Volts thats even lower than the default P4 voltage and my - 5 volts is at lowest at -5.29 volts thats too low . both of them causes MBM to beep.

if your voltages arnt stable its down to the psu, you didnt mention what one you had?

it's a stupid DEER 300 watt PSU , i think it sucks , the range at which my Vcore is highest and lowest is far too much. so is my - 5 volt rail. i think i'd buy an enermax later but i need some info does the - 5 Volt rail cause the mother board to be unstable ?? i've heard of the + 5 volt rail to cause instability but not the -5 volt , is it the same ?

I don't think the -5 volt is hurting anything, it's your core voltage that's most likely to cause problems.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

well thanks for answering me :-) , the -5 volts does not effect my systems stablity , thats good to know my +5 volts is rock stable but yeah about my Vcore i wrote to ABIT to ask about the seemingly large difference of Vcore than the setting . the answered me that it's normal to have the Vcore within 10% margin ? is it so ?

I have not had good luck with swinging voltages on my VCORE, or 3.3v line, at around +-10% I used to get a little unstable. Larger swings would cause a system lock. So I quit using Antec power supplies.

Er, uh, Continental I think. It's an OEM generic power supply that just happens to be better than any Antec power supply of similar ratings that I've tested. It also came with a cheap sleeve bearing fan, which I replaced.
