X6800 getting warning low voltage - help!

My new X6800 seems to be working great, well, until I installed the Intel system utility monitor. Temp is grat. fan is great. CPU voltage is supposed to be 2.05v. I'm getting fluctuation from 1.141v to 1.785v. The intel utility pops up warning all the time. I sent a note to Ultra who replied that this was normal. Is this normal?

Conroe X6800
Intel D975XBXLRK 304
2 GB Corsair Pro PC6400
74 GB 10k raptor HD
ATI X1900XTX Vid
Ultra 600W Xfinity ult-31848
Soundblaster Audigy 2 SZ
Thermaltake Big typhoon CPU Fan

  1. if you have speedstep enabled sure. You can probably disable the warning messages in the program.

    As long as your system isn't locking up i wouldn't worry to much about it.

  2. Thanks, your reply about speedstep got me looking at Intel's specs. It the utility that's the issue. It's not ready for Conroe. The X6800 runs at 1.150v at idle, not at the Prescott settings around 2.05v. The utility is giving bogus warnings based on bad data.

    Thanks again.

    Prescotts don't ran at such high voltage... generally 1.388v - 1.412v
    C2D X6800 with SpeedStep enabled should ran at 0.9v iddle and 1.2v full load according to Toms Hardware tests

  5. I have a 2.8 running at 1.51v with a small OC.
  6. Thanks for the info. There I go thinking I know something again. I wonder why the utility wants 2.05v?
