Hey guys, I think i might have a problem..

When I look at nvidia's monitor program it shows my voltages as all being in the red, and overstressed..

cpu is at 1.5500V
memory is at 1075.8390V
AGP is at 1069.5475V
nForce is at 1069.5475V

those all seem really high..

I downloaded a program called CPUZ, and it says my core voltate is around 1.520V


Im not overclocking anything that I know of(although this was a friends computer, but he says he wasnt overclocking anything)
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+
2.21GHz
ASUS K8N-E-Deluxe


Am I in trouble here?

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

The cpu voltage seems too high, but I'm not sure what the stokc is for that specific processor.

The other voltages are completely wrong because the components wouldn't be working right now. I would suggest checking the voltages in the BIOs for more accurate readings. Have you installed the latest version of ntune also?

How do I check the voltage in the bios?

I just restarted the computer and hit delete and went into that, and the only thing I could find about voltage was under power, and it said

Vcore Voltage 1.53
3.3V Voltage 3.29
5V Voltage 5.0
12V Voltage 12.0

I have the latest ntune I think, Version: 5.05.54.00

But ntune doesnt even have monitoring stuff, I have to use nvidia monitor. I should have the latest version of that, I just downloaded new drivers for the graphics card.

That was the BIOS you were in. I'm not sure how to find it on your motherboard, but go throughout the different menus and see if you can find the voltage for the memory, agp slot, and chipset.

the proper voltage for that chip is 1.5v. however, if you look here http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/displ...n64-3200_2.html the proper clock speed for that chip is 2 ghz. (if I have the right one) have you done any overclocking with it, you or anyone else?
