Vcore all whacky after sound card install...

So I just installed an Asus Xonar DG sound card in my rig...

Booted it up, and I got a warning that my Vcore was at .288. I figured it had something to do with drivers, so I installed the latest driver for it...

After the driver install, I'm not getting any more warnings, but CPUZ and my Bios are still reporting my VCORE at .288.

I have my CPU OCed to 4.2 Ghz and normally its at 1.21 Vcore

The weirdest part of all...the system seems stable after a quick run of IBT and Prime. Am I correct in assuming my pc wouldn't even boot at .288 Vcore, never mind be stable?

What the hell is going on?

Specs:
Asus P8Z77-V LX
3570K
GTX 560 TI
Coolermaster 700W PSU

  1. latest bios for your motherboard ??
  2. 1201 is the latest version. Which I have.
  3. Wait... not 1.288, but just 2.88? That's the oddest thing I've ever seen.

    Seems like dead sensors or faulty software. What's it say when you go into your BIOS?
  4. Well if it works and isnt causing any issues I wouldn't sweat it too much. If it really bugs you try switching the audio to another slot or returning the card for another.

    0.288 is what it reads on the bios overview page and in CPU Z. The only place it doesn't read that is the spot in the Bios where I manually enter the Vcore I want (1.21).

    Yeah, I'm pretty much 100% sure its just a stupid glitch. I'll try putting in a different PCI slot tomorrow.
