    I have a GF 4 Ti 4400 128mb ram and I have a monitor that keeps track of the computer and cpu temp. Also it shows the volts of the AGP... I know that 4x AGP should be at 1.5v but when I start up my computer its at 1.77v then goes down to 1.58 after about a min and a half... is 1.58 good or what?

    Your thoughts please...


    thanks a lot

    just curious... is it labeled as "VCore" in your hw monitor?

    Vcore is the core voltage of your cpu, this voltage depends on what kind of cpu you have. Just take a look at your manufacturers website to find out the nominal Vcore. For example my celeron is standard 1.75V. So in motherboard monitor or whatever, it is usually around that. Not sure about agp voltages, voltages will change under different conditions, ie. my Vcore goes down by about 0.04V when under heavy load. I have no idea why but it just does.

    More voltage means more heat, but sometimes means more stability under overclocked conditions. Hope this helps :cool:

    Ok, i found this post. So it seems that a voltage of 1.58V is fine. People take up their Vagp on their graphics cards to get more stability but it generates more heat. 1.58 should be fine. As long as your card is staying cool, that is the main thing.

    If you havn't overclocked it then it should be fine.
