I crank the Voltage to 1.55 in BIOS, but cpuz and HWMonitor don't see it

Any ideas why that would be. I couldn't get it to quite boot @ 250 FSB x 11 = 2750mHz until I turned the voltage up to the highest mark 1.55v.
I know the cpu is good, I'm trying to compare this board to my AV8 I just switched from. 250-255 was as high as I could go on that board stable. Anyways back to the original question....why isn't the voltage increase recognized by the monitoring programs?

EDIT CPU is only running at 31c right now too.

Not sure if your board/cpu support it, but is the voltage/clockspeed being cut due to power saving features while idle? I assume you're using the board in your sig?

Try watching CPU-Z and just opening a program. Even opening Firefox ramps my e8400 from idle 2.0ghz to 3.0ghz for a second.

If that's not the case, does the BIOS recognize the vcore correctly?

It's weird CPUZ didn't recognize the voltage increase until I also used the Voltage + x % option. It works now.
