Hello again power users,

A small and easy question this time.
What should be the CPU Core Voltage for an E6600 Core 2 Duo?
Mine is at around 1,2 and the comp seems to be running without any problems. Now the Intel Desktop Utility is giving me warnings that it should be 2,05 V. Now I'm not sure if the utility is out of date for Core 2 Duo cpu's (if these have a lower Cpu core voltage) or if it is my power supply that is supplying insufficient Voltage to the CPU Core.

Voltages
my scores:
+12V 11,85
+5V 5,0
+3,3V 3,3
CPU Core(+2,05V) 1,18 <======= Is this too low or is this normal for core 2 duo?
CPU I/O (+1,5V) 1,48


Thanks guys,

2Cb.

A C2D's VCore should be b/w 1.2 and 1.3

Great stuff, thanks guys.

I'm relieved from all possible problems now.
I can reformat and fully go windows xp 64-bit now without any more problems.

Cheers!
