Fluctuating core voltage normal? Tags: CPUs Core Monitors Last response: December 11, 2007 5:07 AM in CPUs Share partialsum December 11, 2007 3:45:50 AM I'm looking at this cpu-z monitor and noticing that the core voltage on my cpu keeps jumping around from as low as 1.184V up to 1.216V. I even saw it briefly go up to 1.3 something. Is it supposed to move around like that? I have an e6750 on a p5K board. Corsair 520w psu, no oc and everything stock. Thanks.

Some boards are better then others.), even more so with speed step on. If its not unstable, do not worry about it..... In short, yes it moves. and in cases can drop under load(some asus boards have an option to minimize this[voltage dampener or something similar]). If you enable speed step it will go even lower.... | Report abuse dragonsprayer December 11, 2007 5:07:31 AM you have it set too low thats why it moves so much | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Fluctuating core voltage normal?> Related ressources: ForumFluctuating processor core voltage ForumCPU-Z shows Core Speed/Multiplier/ Core Voltage Fluctuating ForumJust got a 3800+X2, vcore is fluctuating , is this normal ??
