1.38v according to the CPUz screenshot on http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-Athlon%20II%20X4%20860K.html  but it looks like many are able to run in the 1.2 range.

Re: athlon x4 860k default voltage?

In auto mode AMD CPUs/APUs constantly change vcore based on frequency, load and processor temp so that the processor can provide the best performance under any given situation. When the processor is run in turbo mode the vcore is increased to insure stability at the higher frequency. If you go into the BIOS most BIOS will show you the default base frequency and vcore voltage. You may need to temporarily switch from "auto" mode to manual mode to have the vcore displayed depending on the BIOS design.
