my set up is a p5nsli, 3 gig mem, and a core 2 duo E6300.

I suppose its not really a problem more of an interesting development. I know that the p5nsli isn't an overclocking machine but i thought that since its liquid cooled i could get a lil more out of it.

well i went and up'd the vcore voltage to about 1.35 from the 1.34 that it was stock at. After saving the settings and posting, i went to the hardware monitor built into the bios and it registered that the vcore was now down to about 1.28...booted into XP and used CPUid and it registers the same thing. How is it that i manually raised the vcore to a higher setting and it shows lower?

This is caused by Vdroop. I'm not exactly sure what causes this, but if you google vdroop maybe you can get more info.

I just suggest try raising it a bit more, and see if the vdroop is constant.
