i noticed that CPUZ consistantly reads my core voltage 0.2v higher than what my bios reads it. (i.e. 1.2v in bios shows up as 1.4v in CPUZ)
Everything i have found online is for the opposite case where cpuz is lower voltage and is explained by "vdroop" or "vdrop" but somehow i am different?
Please help me to understand what is happening. is Bios correct or is CPUz correct?
If bios is correct i can do 4.5ghz @ 1.25v but in cpuz this appears as 1.45v which scares me.... also everytime i change the offset even by smallest increment (-.005 i have had bsod on startup or in intelburn)
4.6 (Auto) Bios 1.3v / CPUZ 1.5v - seems stable but cpuz# is scary
4.6 (-.005) Bios 1.1v / BSOD on startup
4.5 (Auto) Bios 1.25v / CPUZ 1.45v - seems stable but cpuz# is scary
4.5 (-.005) Bios 1.1v / CPUZ 1.32v BSOD on intel burn
4.4 (Auto) Bios 1.2v / CPUZ 1.4v - seems stable but cpuz# is scary
4.4 (-.005) Bios 1.1v / CPUZ 1.32v BSOD on intel burn
4.2 (Auto) Bios 1.18v / CPUZ 1.38v - seems stable but cpuz# is scary
4.0 (Auto) Bios 1.1v / CPUZ 1.30v - current
hyper 212+ (so far max heat any time has been 67C so heat is not limiting factor)
I start CPUZ as soon as windows starts and notice it shows a high voltage number. When i start IBT and under 100% load this voltage number dropsi havent paid much attention but i dont think it ever climbs all the way back up to where it started even after ibt or idle or regular use... is that normal?
