Oops sorry i just rememberd 1.7 but that was for 120nm cores, the 90nm cores get "1.6v-1.65v MAX"

poo :(

Without the ~1.6V, windows doesnt want to load :( And everyone is sayings its too much to be running full time.. i guess ill stick with 2.8ghz for now :)

More suggestions/comments etc. are welcome :)

If your cpu doesnt get hot then who cares about the volts.


I don't think there is anything you can say that is a stupid as that. Please don't give your opinions again.

Dave was right different chips different voltages and even when using phase change below -0 C you still have to keep voltages in line. For 24/7 use on air cooling I would stay at 1.55V or below anything above your getting into the area of burning a cpu out real early.

You can bring down the temp by cooling, but still that votage is running through those transistors, BUT STILL they dissipate more heat with more voltage. YOu can take out the heat, but it is still produced in the transistors.
I do think 1.66v is too much. It would be ok to benchmark with it, but running it 24/7 would be too much. Dont quote me. Just my idea. I would be a bit uncomfortable my cpu getting 1.66v every day.

um no. i kno there are those things about ya too much voltages can hurt ur cpu no matter what temps, but based on his voltages and his temps i said dont worry about it. i guess i should have said who cares about the volts as long as they are in the max range for your chip.

o and please dont comment unless your giving your opinion or contradicting someone elses, you didnt contribute anything.

This chip I'm running is the single channel version of that processor and it's been running at 2.9 almost since day 1 with no problems, although this chipset only runs the memory reliably at just over 200.

Nice overclock!

Throw in some temperature displays too on the screenshots for recording purposes ;)

I'd stay around the recommended voltages too unless you're willing to fry it -- would be a hell of a nice test but a costly one. I'm sticking around the recommended max for mine, but still worried that it's going to die within months :)
