Default Vcore = 1.37 V on CPU ? FET issue ?

Guys,

I got 1.37V on Vcore, normally I got around 1.25V
And the board is shut off after few seconds...
Does it matter of 1.37 V on Vcore CPU ? or already over voltage ( FET problem )

Stock voltage for the E6xxx Core 2 Duo CPUs is 1.35V, I believe... so 1.37V is fine. The reason you may see a lower voltage on a working motherboard is because of Intel SpeedStep, which reduces the core clock and CPU voltage when system is idle.
