I've been dropping my core voltages in bios for awhile now (from 1.325 down to 1.28 now) but the core voltage reading in cpu-z consistently fluctuates between 1.248-1.658 (something like that). Is this normal?
My motherboard is a Gigabyte EP35 DS3L
Btw, I turned off speedstep and C1E.
Overclocked to 9x333
PCI E frequency =100 mHz
performance enhance standard
1:1 FSB RAM
all system volage set to normal except for Vcore (1.28)
edit: I now dropped the Vcore down to 1.25 and CPU-z still reads 1.248 to 1.264
I'm not exactly sure if this is the same thing. It seems to me that CPU Z and what now should be displaying lower voltages. I'm getting higher.
Under PC health status, i'm getting 1.300 V as my Vcore. However, under my CPU VOltage Control, I set it to 1.250 V right now. Furthermore, no matter how much I change my voltage control in bios, the core voltage in CPU Z and other programs don't change at all.
