I came across another users thread about the Intel Pentium G3258 core voltage and instead of hijacking his thread even more, I thought I would make my own. Seems that HWMonitor and CPU-Z might be displaying the wrong information. I took some screenshots of the BIOS; HWMonitor and CPU-Z displaying the information. I'm hoping someone can help decipher what it means. I ran Prime95 these setting for 2 hours without errors (I know its not a good sample size, but its something). I didn't pursue the Prime95 test any further as I did not want to damage anything.

Any help is greatly appreciated. The BIOS is updated to the current version. HWMonitor and CPU-Z are also updated to the current version

What's wrong/what is your question??


EDIT: After having to go to other thread to figure out what you were asking, as Tir already said in that thread, that is your input voltage.

Is the VCORE actually the voltage input and the VIN4 my actual CPU voltage?

Edit: so if the clock speed is stable at the current voltage can I increase the clock speed? And once it becomes unstable increase the voltage? I guess I shouldn't make posts so early in the morning when my brain isn't functioning. Sorry for the confusion

That is correct. HWMonitor seems to be reporting the Vcore as your input voltage. The VIN4 appears to be your actual Vcore, while VIN3 is likely the SA voltage.
