Just switched to the P4.. I was hardcore AMD just a few weeks ago.. the vcore on this thing is low as hell.. like 1.45 or something when it shouldbe 1.525.. this is the P4 2.6 northwood.. it is a C stepping also..

the mobo is the TH7-11 Raid.. should i have all the power connectors hooked into the board? or just the ATX12 and the ATX.. or the AUX, ATX12, and the ATX all together.. i have all 3 in now.. ill unplug the one and see what happens?

All three power cables should be connected. I've had two of those TH7-II mobos in the past. The undervolting is a known quirk with this mobo. It's no big deal. Just set the vcore in the BIOS to "user define" and bump up the voltage a notch or two.

great board! connect all the connectors. don't be afraid to give the cpu some extra juice--the th7ii is a notorious undervolter, depending on you capacitors (can't remember but it was something about blue vs. gray)
