I was wondering why in cpuz my core voltage only reads 1.068. I changed the voltage manually to 1.245 It dosnt seem to mater what I overclock it to the core voltage remains the same under cpuz.
Another question is before I overclocked it and when the cpu is idle the core speed drops down to 1600 then under load it raised back up to stock clocks. After I overclocked it it dosent do this anymore. I'm thinking it was something I disabled in the bios but I'm not sure what. I thought that was something like intel speedstep but I didnt see anything like that in the bios.
So is the core voltage being 1.068 an issue? Do I need to change something to make the core speed drop back down at idle?
I look on gigabytes web site and the only bios downloads were f2 and f3. Under cpuz it shows my dios f3b. Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like my bios is up to date. You got me worried now on the voltage behavior. Anymore suggestions?
The only thing I had to change for the memory was the frequency from 1300 to 1600. The clock speed and voltage all matched my memory. System booted fine. I'll run memtest later on tonight when my wife will leave me alone.
When I try to overclock it again I think I will go for 4.4 ghz. I'll post my results after I run prime.
