Please clear this question up for me


Recommended Posts

The question has to to w/ voltage. Now, from what I have read, it is not advisable to run my 3000+Winchester above 1.65v. The question is which reportable setting? In my bios, I have the CPU Vid Control at 1.475, Cpu Vid Special ontrol is set at Above Vid 110%. The bios says my CPU voltage is 1.60v. In Windows , SmartGuardian says 1.58v, and CPU-Z says 1.584v. So, which number should I go by as far as keeping it under the advised 1.65v? The other question is, even when I had the CPU-Z reported voltage at 1.7v, my cpu temp never went over 32c. I have very good cooling. So even if my temps are low, should I not go over the advised 1.65v?

So the "real" voltage is after the 110%? Yes, I am a fanatic about cooling hardware. The XP-90,w/ ceramique, a Thermaltake 92mm fan, 5-80mm case fans( 2-in, 2out, 1-side) and front 5.25" bay fan controller by PC Toys. All in an aluminum case. After 1 hour straight of HL2, max cpu load temp 32c, idle temp right now 24c.
