AMD FX-8120 VOLTAGE

I have my cpu overclock to 4.0mhz i did it via multiplier n disable a few things in Bios my question is my voltage goes from 1.33 to 1.31 to as low as 1.29 is this is normal? i use cpuid hardware monitor n cpuz to see this my pecs are theses:

  1. 4MHz?

    If its stable then thats a good thing, stock voltage is 1.39V i think.

    Test for stability with Prime95 for a few hours (24Hrs recommended).
  2. yes it is stable i left the voltage on auto in bios i ran prime92 blend test yesterday for 2 1/2 hours n stable n i ran a cpl of times amd overdrive stability test for 2 hours n stable my normal temps ate 28c to 30c on idle n no full work load n on testing the hightest i got was 53c
  3. Are you going to try to overclock it a bit more?
  4. thinking about it but this was my fist overclock i ever done i did research on here on google n youtube
  5. Still impressive, that voltage for that clock speed and its stable.
  6. i guess lol lol i guess this is normal like i said just got it to 4MHZ via multiplier n disable a few things in Bios n left everything else on stock like the voltage is on auto n no memory overclock but my voltage goes from 1.33 to 1.29 to 1.31 to 1.30 i guess this is normal
  7. Do you have load line calibration enabled? this will up your voltage according to the cpu load. I leave this feature on auto as it is very useful and helps with stability. I went from 1.36V unloaded to 1.38V loaded. I disabled it and ran cinnibench to test it out and my cpu dropped from 1.36V to 1.23V so I immediatly turned it back on. So if you have this feature enabled yes your change in voltage is normal
  8. yeah i have it on auto i disable cool&quiet n APM master mode but load line n c1e n c6 are on auto n enable right now the voltage reads 1.312 n it drop to 1.29 so i do not know if this is normal or not
  9. 4 MHz? What is this, 1980s? :lol:

    Anyway as long as the system is stable a little voltage droop isn't dangerous.
  10. yeah for now 4MHZ this was my first overclock on prime92 blend test it goes from 1.31 to 1.33
  11. If your system is stable, there is no problem.
  12. Do you mean 4Ghz?
  13. yeah 4Ghz
  14. i am just a little worrie thinking my psu went bad since it is not popular psu thats all but yeah it is stable right now i been running prime95 blend test for over 1 hours already n no problems yet n i had ran it yesterday for 2 1\2 hours n no problem with a temp of 53c that most i saw n 49c to 50c n on idle 28c to 30c
