Hi all

I have this rig:
AMD A8-3870K
ASUS F1A-75-M LE
4Gb ram
250watt pure power suply [500watt peak]

I find it strange that the voltage down to 0444 volts. is this normal? maybe the prob is on PSU?
Im using High Performance setting from AMD Fusion

Please help me! thanks

The only possible disadvantage to lower voltage is instability.

If your CPU is stable, (and operates at correct clock speed under load) I wouldn't worry about it.

Where are you seeing these voltage ratings? If it's on CPU-Z, it may be AMD Cool'n'Quiet turning on.

Bad readings but what people are asking in their own way is what psu are you using?
