hey fellow forumers

I am running my g0 q6600 (1.3250 VID) at 3ghz. When I set the vcore in bios to 1.45 Volts, the CPUZ vcore reads 1.296 volts. If I up the vcore in bios a little bit, the Vcore still reads the same in CPUZ, 1.296 volts. Is there any reason why it doesn't change?

I have thermalright ultra 120 and have flashed to most recent bios.

regards
Henry

grieve, v-droop (notice the 2 o) would not account for a stable vcore over even a small difference in +v on vcore.

I'd get the latest cpu-z to be on the safe side and then make sure that I'm looking at the right information. If nothing changes for a single increment of vcore, try incrementing .1v more and see if it changes. Also, make sure to "save changes and quit" in bios :p

No guys im not looking at the vid, no matter what Vcore i set it at in bios, 1.25 or 1.45, it still reads at 1.296 in CPUZ and HW monitor. With this low voltage im stable at 3.0ghz but cant go any higher!
 
What board do you have?

If you have a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L, then I know what you mean.

It's a glitch in the BIOS that Gigabyte didn't fix until F6a BIOS. I was only able to clock my E7200 to 3.34GHz because it wouldn't budge from stock volts of 1.04V.

After flashing, it was all good. Right now I have the E7200 running at 3.8GHz on 1.2V.

Check with your board's manufacturer and see if there's a BIOS update.
