X.M.P profile increased core voltage alot!

Hi everyone,

My config:

i5 2500k - stock ( still using default cooler)
sabertooth z77 - lateste bios 1805 I think
patriot viper 3 mamba 2133mhz
gtx 560 ti
vertex 3 ssd 120gb
samsung hd103sj 1tb 7200rpm


I recently bought a new memory the viper 3 mamba 2133mhz.

When I activated the X.M.P profile in the bios the CPU core voltage ( I saw it using AIDA CPUID) increased alot, like 1.296v.


Then I also tried to set the memory frequency manually, but again no sucess.


What I noticed is that once I activated the X.M.P or tried to adjust it manually the CPU could not IDLE properly, with CPU frequency always set at 3.7 ghz ( once again I saw it in AIDA CPUID), giving me an average of 54ºC CPU temperature in IDLE.


Can anyone help me please?

  1. Is your ram running over 1.5V??

    Intel does not recommend over 1.5V to ram- it can send more voltage to your CPU.
