Need Advice if the voltage setting is too high


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I just wanted to know if these settings are okie for my comp I am a newbee I just copied some dudes settings I saw in the forum and I changed some to suit my needs I just need to know if these settings are alrite I ran a prime 95 test it did a test for like 1h 20 minz or so till I got tired nd turned it off lol. My min concern is


CPU VID Startup Value: 1.50 ( CPU volt core 1.51)

DRAM Voltage Control: 2.80v (Dram voltage 2.85)


The voltages without brackets are the ones ive set the ones in bracket is what the computer reading them as. Also I am using a thermaltake big typhoon for cooling and I average around 30 35 degrees avg and 40-43 on full max load please let me know if these settings are alright also I can change the FSB up to 330 and the system boots but freezes is there ne way to tell if my system will b stable higher without too much trial nd error nd rebooting.


Settings that I have currently in my bios

For these Venice cores you can go as high as 1.65v and no further is needed in some cases, so you're okay so far with your 3000+. Now with that memory you have i don't think that voltage is bad, but you might want to go into the Overclocking Database and see how much voltage people use on that particular memory when overclocked at high speeds. I think it might be between 2.6v to 2.9v but i might be wrong. The P.E. OCZ i've noticed don't need high voltages like the Gold Editions let's say at 3v, you're probably good.
