Default Vcore voltage settings


I have OC'd my CPU in the BIOS (2.4GHz) and adjusted the voltage. Now I can not lower the vcore rating. It is at 1.44 volts. I attempted to lower it to 1.3_ (various settings) but when I re-boot CPU-Z, PC Probe and a host of other utilities states that it is still at 1.44. When I return to the BIOS the option that I lowered it to is shown. In addition, the Vcore fluctuates (displayed in CPUz by 1/100 to 2/100 of a volt)....? Normal?

Could this have something to do with an "auto voltage" setting. My system is stable (Prime95 for 14 hrs) and the temps are acceptable.

Does anyone think that this voltage is too high, any recommendations on how to lower the vcore?

Also, when I return to stock clock speed the vcore does lower to 1.35 colts.....

Thanks for looking.

this is not a crazy vcore even if it is 1.44.

how ever if you want to make sure everything is back to default, flush the CMOS using the jumper on you're mobo.. its quite simple :P

the vcore is fine for that overclock. it may be related to an autovoltage setting but i am not too experienced with Asus boards. maybe someone else can help you out.
