    V Core voltages-what are they?

    My motherboard is measuring 7 of them I guess. They're + or -, range from 2.5 to 12 asnd 2 are Vsb.

    What's being measured, is it important, what is the Vsb voltage

    And is there a site that explains these simply?
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you. The address is www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html

    These are all your voltages for the motherboard and your computer. Various motherboards have different names Vcore, Vagp etc etc

    Basically, it shows how well your PSU and computer are regulating the Voltages. You should be getting +- 5v from PSU, +- 12v from PSU, then MB splits this down for Vcore (voltage to your CPU) Vmem (voltage to memory) Vagp etc etc

    It is normal for the voltages to vary within a few percent of their supposed value. However, they are good to watch if your PSU is faulty, and your +5v actually reads 110V !!

    wumply just as a warning do not change your voltages in the bios at all could turn your pc into a nice paper weight. Only time people do this is when overclocking and trying to squeeze out as much mhz as they can.
