    AMD CPU Default voltages

    Hello,

    I've sure that this will be embarassingly easy for some of you, but if i wanted to know some simple info on an AMD CPU such as core type, cache size and (more importantly) default voltage, anyone know of a good site to look at?

    I have checked AMD itself, and i can whittle down to a specific CPU (although this is fairly well hidden) but the voltage for the CPU I'm checking says 1.35 1.35 which is obviously a tad ambiguous. So any help would be good.

    BTW incase you want to know its a S939 X2 4200+... I've tried googling several phrases but get the usual overclocking forum threads!!

    Voltage=1.3-1.35
    L1=256kb
    L2=1mb
    Core is manchester or toledo
    Get cpuz, free download

    I think i got that info from the AMD site, but as stated, the voltage is 1.3-1.35 - which I said I found out in the first post. Isnt that a bit odd? I just want to know so that I can set the correct voltage once I get that CPU, and also know exactly how much I am over/under volting it when overclocking.

    I do use CPUZ (great app btw) but again, this is after you have installed it, and if memory serves me correct, I think that it only states the active voltage, opposed to the default one.

    Thanks for the help anyway! JP

    I don't know why you say it's a bit odd?
    A manchester core part number will end "BV" a toledo "CD".
    If you set the core volts to auto, you'll get the default volts.

    I just thought that it was a but strange that the default voltage was a range that’s all, its usually just a single value. Good point about just sticking it onto auto in the BIOS, could try that too, but I just wanted to be absolutely sure that’s all and set it manually, in case the BIOS reading isn’t accurate. Its not exactly life threatening, but I’, just fussy is all… 

    Thanks for the reply though

    A range can seem a bit odd, but it gives motherboard manufacturers a much easier target to aim at without worrying about being accused of under/overvolting.

    They could have just said 1.325 +- 0.25

    Now that would be bad
    (should be 0.025 )
