    just today I noticed this when I checked cpu-z and online power supply calculator.

    stock Core Voltage for the i7-2600k @ stock 3.4Ghz is listed as 1.25V.

    well I saw mine and it was overclocked @ 4.5 Ghz, and it around 0.992 V.

    I tried to run a game and tried to load the cpu(cpu-z says 4500 Mhz) and the Vcore increased to around 1.000V-1.024V.

    its been ages since i did this overclocking, i remember setting a vcore to AUTO.

    what does this mean?? i can overclock more??? or is this bad?

    Stock voltage varies by chip. And its likely in a low power state at that voltage. So you have EIST/Speestep enabled?

    Also, what version of CPUz are you running as it read VttIO (around 1.05 stock) instead of vcore.

    i have it enabled. but i checked cpu-z while running a game(Arma 2 to be specific) it says 4500 mhz compared to 1600 mhz when it is in low power mode. vcore still stays around 1.000V


    my cpu-z version is 1.58

    Old CPUz version that read VttIO. Upgrade to the newest and see if it changes.
