  1. well if it works then whats the problem :D
  2. Yeah, if it's running at the expected clocks with lower than expected voltage, that's a GOOD thing.
  3. not the answer i was looking for.Can this be corrected?
  4. a very high vdrop?
  5. My motherboard has a dynamic voltage for the CPU. Its makes the CPU use less voltage on idle, play a game and the voltage will probably go up. Maybe your motherboard does this too?
