Another question- in cpuid hardware monitor pro the fx 4100 cpu voltage core reads between 1.00v idle and 1.43v under load i get that the idle is correct but 1.43v is to high, right? is this an accurate reading? If not is there a way to get a more true reading?
also when monitoring CPU temps do i go off the TMPIN0, TIMPIN1 or the core temps? as there is quite a diffrence between these.
OK well i updated BIOS & still the same problems with voltages. I saw on the net how to change voltages so i set the cpu over voltage to 1.33v the multiplier to x18.5 (3700) with bus speed of 200.0Mhz. I also disabled turbo core & cool & quiet.
Is this ok? Or do I need to lower voltages or Multiplier?
Thanks for any response.
Keep the multiplier, some amd cpus don't have the same voltage as others and have learned that on my own Start lowering the voltage a little at a time until you find out just how much you actually need for the system to be stable. That way the cpu runs cooler and it saves you a little on the power bill but not much. AMD tends to give their cpus high stock voltages compared to older models and intel.
