    Okay, I bought a via vl33-s last week to put a Pentium 4 1.3 GHz into because the old mobo went south on me. So I put the whole kit -n- kaboodle together and while i'm playing in th ebios, I notive that the Default CPU Vcore Voltage is 1.700 V. Now, I could be worng, but I thought that the P4's run at 1.500 V default. My p4 2.4b is running at 1.5 default. Did the early p4's run at a higher voltage or is my chip acting in a funky kind of way.

    Please Help!

    It'd help if ya read a bit on the CPU before ya asked this question (or, before you installed the heatsink on the proc, looked at the top of the proc and read it :D heh). The whilly's did run with higher voltages than the northwood's... This is the reason your 2.4b runs at a lower voltage than your 1.3 :) Your 1.3's voltage requirements is exactly 1.7v

    The reason I didn't look at the CPU opr read up on it is because I assumed (ya know what they say about assuming) it was the same as the P4. Blame it on me being a newbie. It was also NOT my CPU or computer for that matter. It was a DELL work computer that I was rebuilding for the boss. The mobo went down and I had to get it back up FAST!. Your'e right, I should have read up on it, but I figured I''d get ansers quicker on the boards while I worked on getting it cooled down. Still running a little warm at 49.5 C. Probably put another fan in. Only has two at the moment.
