Default Coretemp displaying incorrect VID when Stepspeed is enabled.

Well, I found a Q6600 with a VID of 1.1625V, the seller is gave me that reading when SP was enabled. I have heard that Coretemp does not display the correct VID when SP is enabled. So, anyone with a Q6600, I need your help.

I assume you all have it disabled for OC'ing, so check your VID in Coretemp now, enable step speed and return to default clocks and test again.

It would be really helpful if Q6600 owners could help me with this.

Only 7H left on the auction.

mine doesn't alter, 1.25v whether oc'd/stock, speedstep on/off VID does not alter and so it shouldn't.

EDIT: I was going to post a couple of screenies but Imageshack is dog slow this morning.
