Do I trust the vcore reading, or the vcore setting? The reading is quite a bit lower than the setting (set to 1.475, reads 1.44)

Yes, the reading is ususally the one to follow, but some software gets it wrong. (According to MBM my core is getting 2.5 volts!) Where are you getting the reading from?

thanks rseven. i should have corrected myself. if its from the bios, you can USUSALLY trust it. I shouldnt have said "always" because there is always a time something contradicts that ;)

Yes, I trust the bios readings over the settings for sure. Probably the only thing sure fire is a VM, and frankly I'm not that precise to go out and buy one.
