Has anyone else tested their Vcore on an dualcore AMD system with a multimeter? Mine is never what its suposed to be! at bios set 1.334 Vcore its at 1.45 steady under load, though CPUZ shows 1.367-1.392 wavering all around. At 1.5 vcore CPUZ shows 1.525-1.565, mulitmeter shows 1.65 steady.
Im thinking of buying a new board so I dont have to whip out a multimeter when I want to find out what my vcore is and so it dosent overvolt so bad under load. First I want to hear if any other boards are having the same problem though. Anyone willing to check theirs with a multimeter?

BIOS: 1.334
CPUZ: 1.367-1.392 (load)
Multimeter: 1.45 steady (load)

Bios: 1.5
CPUZ: 1.525-1.565 jumpy (load)
CPUZ: 1.5-1.525 jumpy (idle)
Multimeter: 1.65 steady (load)
Multimeter: 1.55 steady (idle)

Control test:
Molex with multimeter: 5.09 (should be 5.0x something)
Video card Vcore multimeter: 1.69 (should be 1.6-1.7 depending on card)
