It does seem high, based on the link, but have him go into the BIOS and check.

Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 530/530J supporting HT Technology (1M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB))

Yes, the core voltage should be 1.25v - 1.525v.

You should check the BIOS readings. They tend to be more accurate. CPU-Z depends on the sensor and they have been known to give false readings, particularly when they get old.

He can't change anything in the bios but I looked at his temps with speedfan at they were ok. 47 °C,with load 52°C so nothing to worry about ?

You're not looking to change anything, just to confirm or deny the software reading.

In an AMI BIOS the readings are found under the Power tab > Hardware Monitor.
