When I run sisoft sandra it tells me my vcore is to high, I never touch those things as I know nothing about them. I know I need to change it but am unsure which one it is and what the setting should be.

E8400 is rated at 1.2V so 1.14 is just fine for it.

FSB should be set at 333 and the multiplier should be set to 9 to get 3.0Ghz

I guess that I have to wonder...why are you running Sandra?

Unless you are running the paid version, I believe that SSS is prone to be inexact in its warnings and recommendations.

My experience with Sandra is that is an inexact tool, since it uses a database based on users (with varied systems and configurations). It then generates a mythical "average" of like items...which is only mythical in nature.

Hi guys, sorry I took so long to answer, I gave up a bad habit so have been playing Star Trek (Yes, I'm a trekkie ) to keep busy.
I came across sandra and thoughtI'd try it and got worrid when it told me that.
Thanks dpunisher I'll give it a go.
