    On my P4 cpu i can set the vcore to 1.4v max in bios. with my E3200 i can set as high as 1.9v but at 1.6v in the list of voltages it then jumps to 1.8v.

    I want to get my vcore in windows to show as 1.6v. currently showing as 1.55v

    Ive set 1.6v in bios.

    Anyone know why the vcore jumps from 1.6 to 1.8 in the bios? also dose this on gigabytes own easytune 6 prog.

    Is there another way i can get to 1.6v??

    cheers

    you ARE getting 6v into the CPU, you are getting voltage drop, basically lower effeciancy such as theres 1.6v going INTO the CPU, yet only 1.55v is actually going to the core.

    also, maybe the bios is glitching try setting it to 1.65 or 1.7v?

    BY THE WAY, this kind of voltage on a wolfdale chip CAN fry the processor, so be careful!

    Im being care full :p


    I think you miss inderstand me.

    In the bios where i set the vcore, its like this

    1.5500
    1.5625
    1.5750
    1.5800
    1.5875
    1.5900
    1.5975
    1.6000
    1.8000

    ah i see, then no, theres no way to get "true" 1.6v, due to voltage drop.

    i dont understand why you would need that much anyways, isnt it a wolfdale chip?

    Its is yeah but for some reason i need 1.600vcore set in bios just to have 3.8Ghz stable. If i drop it down 1 notch its unstable :(

    4ghz will run and even 4.1Ghz but not stable. CSS would crash after a few mins of gameplay.

    Im gonna do some messing about and see what speed i can get up to with stock vcore.

    That's a crazy voltage for 45nm at those clocks o_O
