1.1409 is your VID, which is different from your Vcore voltage. Have you got CPU-Z version 1.65? I think that cleared up some peoples' issues about not showing your voltage under load.

Also, the Sabertooth TUF armor is cool, but what's inside is what makes that board special. It's got high end components, from the capacitors to the VRM power phases. It handles higher frequency RAM better than quite a few of the other boards(ask Paul about that), and has a 5 year warranty. I've been 100% happy with mine, I can tell ya that.

Is that voltage under load? Does it fluctuate any?

I ran it this time with voltage on auto. Dropped it too 4.0. This is entering the third pass in IBT.

It fluctuated between 1.08 and the reading it shows.

And running prime, voltage did not fluctuate at all

Prime95 will keep it under load continuously while IBT will ramp up and down. IBT will put it under more stress total, but like I said, it will test, then spool down, then back up, etc. If that is reading your voltage correctly, 1.1 or lower is pretty good for 4-4.2GHz. Does your CPU cooler fan ramp up when it's under load? What connection does your CPU fan have, 3-pin or 4-pin?

It's 3 pin, using a adapter to power both fans

Hyper N520 - Cooler Master

I dont hear it so it doesnt seem to be ramping up much

If you want to know what a good water cooler will do for you, here ya go. First is @ Idle, temps in the mid 20's. Second is @ 100% load running IBT @ 4.5GHz, 1.264v-1.272v.
