Default Voltage Question

I'm in the middle of overclocking my Opteron 146 and I've got a question about voltages. My motherboard is a DFI Lanparty UT NF4. I bumped the voltage up to 1.425 volts, but CPU-Z reads 1.376 volts. What's the deal?

I'm not sure about your question, but how high did you get before you had to up the voltage? Curiousity from another 146 user .

I passed Prime95 at 2.6ghz for 6 hours 42 minutes at 1.4 volts. Thats why I wnated to bump up the voltage.

just trust the setting you make in BIOS. DFI's voltage monitoring is off a little but it is generally spot on what you set it.
