Why is my 3570K so voltage hungry? Tags: Stress Test Overclocking Last response: October 27, 2012 1:31 AM in Overclocking Share miketen587 September 28, 2012 10:47:37 PM Ok so I'm not quite sure what to make of my 3570k... I'm currently siting at 4400 MHz and 1.315v...everything seems stable normal usage wise...but after running a prime 95 custom stress test the program stopped responding about an hour in. The test I'm running is the one found here labeled "The Prime Test" http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclockin... Do I really need to bump my Vcore up higher than it is to stay at 4.4. Or maybe I can set something different in my bios to stay stable? My voltage just seems a bit high compared to everyone sitting at 4.4ghz. I guess it's possible I just got a voltage hungry chip. CPUz shows the voltage usually fluctuating between 1.28 and 1.32 I know my temps are fine at less than 80 degrees and I know the voltage is at a safe level for the chip...I'm just confused as to why its so voltage hungry at a modest OC level.
