    Hi,

    I just registered to the forums because I'm interested in Over Clocking. I've been reviewing several threads in the Gigabyte section because I was having some difficulties geting my settings to post.

    I previously just let the MB adjust the voltages and was able to reach a stable 3.75ghz on my E8400 C0. However people on another forum suggested that I not allow automatic voltage settings (for CPU and mermory) as it might over volt by too much.

    I came here and after much reading have gone to manual settings. Currently I'm at 3.42ghz. I've set my CPU voltage to 1.3V and memory to 2.064v. My MB is a P35-S3G, processor E8400 C0 and 4 GB of Mushkin PC2-8500 2x2gb dual channel 5-5-5-15.

    I have a few questions.

    Which is more accurate to measure CPU temps. Core Temp or Real Temp? There is about a 4-5 degree celsius difference with Core Temp reading higher.

    Also from previous reading I expected the voltage display from Cpu-z to differ from the MB settings.
    Cpu-z shows core voltage at 1.280v under load and 1.296v at idle. Why?

    Sup (Hi) High Sierra,

    If you run Core Temp, Real Temp, and a third or forth utility you can pretty much see which is accurate. I like HWMonitor because it shows so much info in addition, and it's identical to Real temp and my MOBO's utility.

    And under load CPU-Z shows a different Voltage because its not possible for it to be 100% constant under load or even idle. I ran a benchmark earlier (24,461 in 3DMark '05) and while doing so I got between 1.25V Max, 1.23 Min. core voltage CPU@3.7 GHz.

    I downloaded and installed HWMonitor. It appears to be the same as the "sensors" display in "Systems Information for Windows".

    BTW the temps agree with Core Temp, not Real Temp. So it looks like my temps are 4-5 degrees celcius warmer than I thought (I was only using Real Temp previously). Still good though. 58 deg after 30 minutes of Prime95.

    My Core Temp reads the same as all other utilities.

    What Revision E8400 do you have? (CPU Tab in CPU-Z shows.)

    My E8400 is Revision, "C0".

    Real Temp Must be calibrated, and the TjMax must be set Per your choice of CPU and belif of the setting. Here is The RealTemp Calibration page, by the way It is what I use, along with everest which both come out to the same Core Temps when TjMax is set properly >>

    The difference in voltage you are seeing are by Intel Design, and are normal. Vdrop is the difference in what you set in the BIOS and what you get at Idle. Vdroop is the difference between What you get at idle and what you get under load

    Thanks for the replies. I downloaded Real Temp V3.0 and it agrees with Core Temp. The tJmax has been changed on Real Temp.

    I'll post my settings for my BIOS next time I do an OC. Currently running at 3.420 with no stability issues.
