CPU Voltage

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have an Athlon64 X2 3800+ @ 2.4GHz with no voltage increase whatsoever...the default voltage for the CPU even at this overclock level stays at 1.3V, is that normal???

And also I've heard some people saying that their X2 3800+ is a "Toledo" core rather than a "manchester" even if CPUZ detects as a manchester....

how the heck do I find out which core I have if CPUZ can't distinguish between the two??

It will stay at default unless you change it in the bios. If its stable at 2400 with that voltage ya have a pretty good chip.Have check code on top of cpu to know for sure.

It says 1.3v because the mobo sensors arent reading the voltage accuratly which is very common.. If you were to test the voltage with a DMM it would be very close if not right on the money.. Dont worry about this at all.. its totally normal..

 

If you look on the top of your cpu's IHS at the end of the part # it will have either a BV or CD..

 

BV = Manchester

CD = toledo
