Does anyone recall what the normal vcore is for a stock Opteron 185 (2.6) 939 is?

I've read 1.35...but I'm not sure that's right.  I have seeing vcore drops in pc probe from the 1.6 that I have it at now to 1.4 and 1.3, and then it will rebound.

Why do you think this is doing that?

Thanks!

 that should be about right, if you have it in auto obviously the motherboard will send an extra voltage just to keep the cpu where is supposed to be

That vdroop is about right. Especially if that is with it loading on and off with the droop. Asus has had a long history of vdroop on all their boards for years

Would that result in a comp shutdown?  The power supply is a relatively new 800w.  Are there any tell tale clues on the A8N-SLI deluxe that would make my comp just power off.  I looked for pop top transistors and couldn't find anything....

No the voltage droops a little on every motherboard. Yours is totally normal.

How high is your overclock? Are you having stability problems?

if your computer is randomly shutting off, check the temp via bios.

 

my recommendation if this is happening is taking everything out, check the thermalpaste in the cpu, making sure that the rams are also working good by testing them in another computer (friends or family).

random shutdowns are more common for overheat not for voltage issue

You mention the psu but  didn't list the brand name. Please give us a run down on your machine so we can have a better chance at sorting out this issue.

also, maybe its  a result of cool n quiet? i know cool n quiet scales down cpu speed and vcore when not in use heavilly, try to disable that and see what happens
