Which is my real CPU voltage?

Recommended Posts

I have 3 posibilities:

1.) CPU VID Control(1.425) * CPU VID Special Control(1.13) = 1.61025v

 

2.) This one 1.59v

3.) And finally this one 1.56-1.57v

If the real one is 2 or 3 I would like to go a little further whith my OC.

If is the first one I think I'll stay put.

Thanks!

im intrested so i have this issue. people have and in no doubt will say the only way to get a true reading is to use a dmm, but some of us dont have acces to one so which one of these two are we to use?

 

id like to know aswell dude.

using a DMM, i found that the BIOS is much more accurate than windows utilities. And under load it even jump up a little bit higher. So at load you are prolly more like 1.62 or so, i think its one of DFI's little ways of adding stability under load.

I take the CPU-z Reading as the honest truth. On my ASUS (which has been bay'd) the CPU-z reading matched the Bios aswell as MBM and other monitoring software form ASUS.

I dont think its going to Lie just on DFI boards.

Budwise my BIOS show 1.59v.

You think that DFI mobo pumping at load another 0.03v and go to 1.62v?

Anyway my full load temp don't exceed 43C so l think I'll continue my OC but this readings confused me and I don't know were to drow the line (reffering to voltage).

the real vloltage is the one taht you measure with a multi-meter

 

but as budwise said BIOS voltage is closer to reality and voltage under load will be higher than at idle

I'd believe neither.

 

1.425 * 1.13 = 1.61025

 

I'd believe the voltage you asked it to use out of safety, and secondly because while the voltage reading components aren't that accurate, the voltage supplying components are. :)

Big mistake. I have measured mine with a DMM and CPUZ has been off as much as 0.1v! Now this will vary from board to board but I still wouldn't use that as my guide. In the absence of a DMM tool, what you SET in your BIOS is going to be very close to what you get.
