A VCore that high is not healthy. Hell I think the last CPU to need 2V was a Pentium. Try setting the VCore to the spec that is for your CPU. Probably 1.2-1.3v. That high, even though the temps are not too bad, could still cause some major damage to a CPU. m 0 l outlw6669 a b à CPUs December 10, 2009 8:53:32 AM Welcome to the forums! Yes, your vCore is dangerously high. Leaving it there will damage your CPU. Set the vCore to Auto as soon as possible. m 0 l Related resources Intel i7 860 high temps - Forum Intel Core i7 860 High temps? - Forum Very Weird System Temps while running the I7 2600k @ 4.3GHz vcore not setting correctly on asus p8z68-v LE - Forum i7 4770k Vcore running at 1.275v.

I had a MSI board do what is happening to you.

I think it is a false reading, but that doesn't give me much confidence in the quality of the board. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
