    Can anyone advise please.I recently bought some corsair dominator 8500 ram while it was cheap so I thought I would benchmark before doing any overclocking so I downloaded and run sisoft sandra.It says my v-core is to high, max should be 1.113 and sure enough on checking in the bios mine is running at 1.208v,sisoft also says mb is running too hot but bios says ok.Do i need to update Bios on my P5K premium to support the E8400 not sure what version I am running to be honest but it reports the proccessor correctly and so does windows and sisoft.

    Solved guys.... Ive answered this myself,too early Bios on MB I need later Bios.Because mb said it suported later procesors I just took it for granted it was ok,especially as it reported the cpu correct.never take anything for granted.

    hi again updated bios to later version(07202,i needed 0504 or later.Trouble is BIOS is still showing 1.208v for V-core,sisoft says it should be 1.113v, which is quite a differance,which is correct?. Reset jumpers etc and rebooted still no change.sisoft also says my mb's running hot but on checking it doesnt feel hot too me,checked all the heatsinks they seem ok to me,hotest thing in there is my 8800gtx.I have gone into bios and manually reduced the voltage for now to be safe but would like to know what it should be.Is sisoft correct anybody know please.
