Hey everyone, I'm a relatively new PC gamer here, and just bought a PC. Before I ask my question, I want you guys to see what I have.

 

AMD FX-8320 3.5GHZ EIGHT-CORE (Vishera)

Video: XFX R9 280 3GB GDDR5 DOUBLE D PCIE 3.0

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+ CROSSFIRE

RAM: DATA XPG V3 8GB DDR3 2133 MEMORY   (16 GB)

 

Now my question is this. I would like to know what the stock voltages are for my CPU. I think I accidentally changed it and it may or may not be underclocked or overclocked. I would like to have it all on defaults if possible.  Initially, I was having overheating problems while turbo core was enabled, I had to disable it from the Bios so I wouldn't have this issue anymore. I recall when I first purchased this PC, I didn't really have overheating problems with stock voltages and with Turbo core tech enabled. Also, if anyone could tell me what the stock settings are across the board on everything in overdrive that would be great too! Here's what I have now... And again, I'm not having temp issues, but I fear that my PC's performance is being affected here while playing games.

 

Regular CPU VID is at 1.2750

NB Vid is at 1.1500

Turbo Core CPU VID is at 1.35 (is this why I was overheating with it on?) and multipliers were at 18.5 for Turbo Core as well.

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, and please if possible, be as thorough as possible as my knowledge is not the best when it comes to this kind of stuff

so I apologize in advance. I know I shouldn't have messed with it, but I honestly can't confirm if this was the case or not.
