Heres a pictre of what i mean

It automatically puts my voltage sometimes also to like 1.45, scared it may be unstable and crash. But i do have a kiler cooler which i dont think will make a difference

Edit: When i run a stability test, sometimes it will get up to 4.9ghz not sure if that is legit or not

More about : cpu target speed 5ghz current speed 5ghz

Could you tell us a little more information about your system?

I suspect he has an FX-8150 Zambezi with the system clock at 250MHz (14x250MHz = 3.5GHz)

By using DDR3 1333 the memory divider is dropped from 6.67 to 5.33 to keep the memory at spec speed.

When Turbo kicks in, the CPU multiplier/P-State raises voltages and boosts several individual core speeds.

As long as temps are under control, the voltages look okay.

edit -- just realized he has 6 active cores :lol:  so it's possible it's a Thuban with Turbo
