My conclusion from this overclock is that NEVER EVER BUY AN AMD 64 3200+ VENICE THAT HAS THE FOLLOWING MODEL NUMBER AND THE DATE WHEN CREATED:
I have been searching in google for these numbers and the owners also had the worst overclock with the 0518 version. Any Venice core that has been created on 0517 or before are said to be nice overclockers with less voltage.
Second thought is I couldn't believe how much voltage this CPU can take. I even tried 1.72 once for couple of minutes to see if I could reach my clock higher. Oh yea, I haven't done anything wrong in the overclocking process. I read the "Definitive Guide to A64 Overclocking" on PDF and then I went to HardForums and read their guide. The DFI guide was better so I did first. But imagine with a stock cooler running at this voltage and keeping the temperature at or below 40 degrees load.
Do you think it is dangerous for a Venice core to take this amount of voltage due to its 90 nanometer processing as opposed to older core such as Clawhammer and Newcastle? It is because I plan to use this overclocked speed when I am doing CPU intensive applications that need a little more performance boost.
