Q6600 CPU-Z core voltage Question

I was able to overclocked my q6600(GO) to 3.33(9*370) on my DS3L. When my cpu is idle and speedstep has the cpu lowered to 2222, CPU-Z says my core voltage is 1.36. However, when I load prime95 my core voltage pivots between 1.312 and 1.328.

Is this normal? It seems like my core voltage would be lower when idling instead of being lower when under load.


Also, is it possible to adjust the vcore directly with a GA-p35-ds3l? At this point I just have it set on auto because I am unable to adjust my vcore directly in the bios.

you can manually change it in the bios, i used to have that board, just hit enter in the bios screen and it will allow you to do that, also, the voltage that cpu is stating is b/c of vdroop, do a google search and look at the answers to vdroop.

What do you mean just hit enter in the bios? The only ones that I am able to adjust on the bios screen are FSB overvoltage control, MCH OverVoltage Control(North bridge), and CPU Voltage Control. I am rather new at this, so if one of those represents vcore excuse my stupidity.

turn off all intel speedstep settings and do a manual cpu configuration and that should let you change the cpu voltage then
