    What is stock vcore?

    tannor

      Hi,

       

      I just recently got my i5 3570k and was curious my motherboard sets that vcore to 1.2v when I am not even overclocking.

       

      Is 1.2v the stock vcore? I notice 1.2 only when I hit the turbo boost of 3.8 ghz, at idle the stock vcore is anywhere from  0.96 - 1.1, it fluctuates a lot while idle.

       

       

      Is 1.2v safe?  should I manually set it to something lower to get better heat and less chance of hurting the chip?

       

      Thanks!
