    Thanks for the response. I was getting the same reading and just wanted to check if it was normal.

    idle = there's a little fluctuation, if you get cpu useage 0-4% for example there's a slight increase.
    loading the CPU see's a rise in vCore to ~ 1.240 or so.

    Small amounts of load on the CPU show an increase in vCore. Running cpu-z for example gives between 1.181 and 1.185v. Would imagine something like uGuru would produce a similar result.

    Voltages measured via DMM btw
    .:. X2 @ 2.9 .:. E6600 L628 @ 4.73 .:. AB9 @ 512 FSB .:. E6300 @ 100% OC Stable
