Hi guys, first post here. I recently upgraded my old AM2 mobo and processor, and I have a few questions.
First, are the voltages on any of the cores suppose to randomly drop? I am seeing a dip down to .98 v on core 1, and the other 3 are staying at 1.35 v. I was wondering if this is normal, as I usually monitor this with CPUID HW, and have never noticed this before.
Also, would having the boards auto OC turned on have anything to do with this. This is my first build, and I was trying to check stability. My temps are hovering around 17c on idle, and bump up to 25c or so on load. I know it's pretty cool, but I was wondering if the undervoltage is normal, and will it hurt the chip?
Pardon my inexperience, as I am just now getting into this on my own, trying to read anything I can. Hopefully, I can get a bit of guidance here.
I got it to unlock the 4th core last night, however, I turned the unlocker off just incase that was what was causing it. Any info would help, and I hate to ask such a noobish questions. I just don't want to ruin this chip. I loved it in my AM2 board. But wanted the 4th core.
Thanks in advance.
