Vcore problem? please help

By LenaMarieD ยท 5 replies

  1. I think i figured out the cause of my blue screen problems finally. Memory seems to check out but, i got SySoft Sandra and it says the Vcore is set too high, i imagine that can cause blue screen problems and every time i enable an alarm in the bios and on the EasyTune application that came with my motherboard they all just start going off. How can i fix this? I dont know the builders overclocked or not but i dont care about overclocking, i just want a stable system, i'll buy a new CPU if i think its too slow.

    Athlon 64 XP 3200+
    Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9 Mobo
    Geforce 7800 GT
    Soundblaster Audigy Sound card
    1 gig dual channel memory

    VCore info:
    Core Voltage rating: 1.400V
    Min/Max Core Voltage:1.100V / 1.450V
    CPU Fan Speed 2009 RPM

    Easy Tune 5 info:
    Current 2009.25 Mhz
    Original 2009.00 Mhz
    FSB 200.00
    Mem Freq - 400.00
    AGP/PCI-E Freq - 100.00
    PCI Freq - 33.00
    CPU Fan Setting is all 60%

    Hardware Monitor says

    VCoreA 1.450 (Flucutations between that and 1.470)
    +3.3V 3.230
    +12V 12.090

    Fans says

    CPU 2033 RPM
    System - with a flashing warning sign

    System 31/87
    CPU 37/98

    Thank you in advance, it seems like something is really wrong with this, every moment im on my PC im worried about it blowing up on me, please help.

    Get the BIOS manual out, go into your BIOS, and adjust VCore to e.g. 1.385/1.390.
    That should do the trick.
    The rest looks respectable enough.

    thanks for the response, i got the bios book out and went into it but i dont seem to have an option to change the vcore. under the frequency/Voltage option all i see is

    CPU Freq. and it goes from 200 mhz to 300 mhz
    PCIE Clock at 100-145 mhz
    K8 CPU clock ratio
    Robust graphics booster

    any ideas on how i can get at the vcore settings? thanks in advance

    On some gigabyte motherboards, you have to press ctrl+f1 at the main bios screen to enable "advanced" bios settings adjustment.

    I doubt the vcore is your issue though. The board you have is one that is frequently found to be defective, as evidenced here.
    So my guess, is you got one of the defective motherboards. Syptoms of the defective ones are frequent blue screens, according to the reviews on newegg.
