Hello all!

So to start off I bought a new motherboard (GIGABYTE 78LMT-USB3) to replace my MSI 870A-G54 because the USB ports began to die. After booting my computer I launched core temp and CPU-Z and noticed that in Core Temp it said that my VID is 1.4750v, but CPU-Zs core voltage fluctuated between 1.512v and 1.524v. This alarmed me a bit because I heard you aren't supposed to go above 1.5v. I went back into my BIOS and it said my CPU voltage was at 1.5v but I couldn't lower it. Any thoughts?

EDIT: sorry forgot to mention that my CPU is a AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4ghz no overclock

Even 1.5 is too high for a non-overclocked PhenomII
Stock is supposed to be under 1.4.

So do you know of any ways to lower the voltage? My bios won't let me :(

Hey Juanmoretime,

Try updating your bios to the latest version. Then do a cmos reset just to be sure...

See if that helps... I think it should ;)
