    Sandra tells me my V-Core is too high:

    I have a Pentium D 830--should be between 1.25 and 1.4. Below is a screen shot with Everest saying is 1.15? :confused:

    Can someone explain this?

    Actually the reading is probably wrong and anyway 1.15 would be low vcore rather than high if the vcore is 1.25-1.4.

    You OK Mulder?

    Check what it reports in the BIOS.

    Unless you changed it manually, it should be on the default for that processor.

    Actually, I did that right after making this post and saw that it was in the correct range--1.36 or 1.37, so I forgot about this thread! :D

    But why is Sandra reporting it as 1.15 and why does it say its too high? :confused:

    Good Afternoon Mulder, that is interesting you can use different utilities to monitor voltages and for some odd reason they commonly read differently.
    I ran a few tests with digital meter and compared readings in three common programs and found Everest was most accurate.
    Speedfan was least accurate.
    I have no idea why but suspect different motherboards have different kinds of reference information, which is interpreted differently by each program.

    If you get half a chance give it a try, at least it does let you know which program to use on your own gear.
    How come you have all this good gear, i suspect you don't have children! (LOL!)
