ya u stole my topic lol but its all good. anyway i think its also that u got the se edition of the 680i. i read somewhere that that was was specially made for dual core cpu's and sucks with quads... i think it was a video review from tiger direct. what u might try doin is selling your quad and gettin the e8400. you would get a pretty good oc out of that

screw that, not after all the "zomg i got a quad core lol @ me" i've been doing.

I'd sell the mobo before i'd sell the cpu... it just would feel right... you know, the mobo goiving me problems and all.

But anyways i got it to 3ghz atm, and its running on 1.175V according to cpu-z... but in bios it says it is running at 1.21V

So, ill just keep putting it up in small increments of 5 i guess. so much for 1337 fsb

Ignore software read outs of voltages.
when we ask, we want to know what you set through CMOS setup.

VID is reccomended vcore for your CPU @ it's stock speed.

Different from cpu to cpu, due to manufacturing processes.

You can find it in coretemp

My VID is 1.25

Check in the intel overclocking thread, ull see all different VID's.

I need to have it at stock to see the actualy vid right?
