Hello! I overclocked my intel e7500 to 3.8 GHZ, I had set the vcore voltage to 1.375 in the bios. then I opened the cpuz and it showed me a vcore voltage of 1.344 and 1.328 always changing. when I did an occt:cpu test it showed only 1.328 and did not change except of one time for a fraction of a second and then returned to a steady 1.328 in load. as well as I know this called a vdrop. My question is: is it dangerous for the cpu? should I return to a default clock and abort the OC? or ehat should I do?

My specs are:
Corsair 2X2 GB 800@830 MHZ
Seagate 500 gb
CM extreme power plus 600W
case: cm690

My voltage in the bios are:

vcore: 1.375
CPU termination: 1.3
CPU reference: 0.805 (stock)

(G)MCH: 1.3
ICH: 1.550 (stock)

DRAM: 2.00

Vdroop is normal. Some newer boards will have protection against it, but most older boards don't. As long as your OC is stable, I wouldn't worry about it.

Vdroop is normal. It's supposed to helps prevent crashes from overvolting when a high load is removed quickly.

So can I continue the overclock a little to 4 GHZ and see if it will be stable? I'l need to higher the voltage tought...

You can, just make sure your voltage will be high enough at load. There is a way to mod your board to almost get rid of vDroop, but it's not the easiest to find. I just googled around and couldn't find anything on one.

Do you have a multimeter, and know your way around a circuit board?

Yes we have a multimeter, but I think I'll just improvise the voltage so that it would be good and as you said if its stable it not an issue to worrie about and its safe. thanks a lot! :)
