  1. If your core voltage is set to 2.144 volt, it is too high. Intel's max recommended voltage is 1.45 volts.

    Thanks for the reply. For the voltage I have not changed any of the settings, all of them are factory settings. I cannot change the settings either because Iam not able to find the core voltage and FSB settings in my BIOS. Could they be locked?
