I use a Hardware Sensors Monitor by AB Software (the first I found) and it keeps telling me that the core and i/o voltage exceed the deviation limit. I'm talking permanently condition here. I'm pretty sure that I'm running the CPU that way since I got it. Am I at risk of frying my hardware? I never noticed it before. Either I was lucky up to this day or it doesn't matter that much. Exact values are: core 1,76V i/o 1,55V The nominals as stated in the tool's settings: core 1,5V i/o 3,3V allowed deviation 10% I don't know anything about the voltage defaults, but I've read that 1,75V for Athlon XP 1800+ is pretty much standard and not 1,5V like the tool tells me. I have no idea about the i/o voltage, but it seems I have less than half the nominal value right now which might be wrong just a bit. Since two days ago I seem to have major problems all of a sudden...was worth registering here! Help appreciated, thanks in advance.
