What kind of voltages are people putting through sandy's?

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to get an idea of what is considered acceptable voltage on a 3700+ Sandy. AMD rate it at 1.30 - 1.40, I'm hovering around 1.50 - 1.60 at the moment.

rise, I have the same setup as u..... try getting the mems to 255mhz to reach a nice 2.8ghz, should be stable at that voltage.. Also, where did u got that temp readings??

Wow!!! 46c @1.65v???? What cooling are u using?

 

I'm running an XP-90 with a Panaflow running at 7v because it was too loud for me. the panaflow is mounted to blow down on the heatsink.

 

I also have a 120mm fan blowing over the chipset area as well.

Temps are from MB5M, and cross referenced with the BIOS

 

I guess I have abnormally good case airflow :D and the 120mm blowing over the chipset area (and XP-90) can't hurt

that temps are strange.... im running a xp120 with a panaflo at 12v and im getting load temps of 50c @1.53v..... where did u got those readings?

 

 

Only smartguardian and MBM5 the modified version (got it through that loooong thread)

 

Is there any other way of knowing?? I idle at 29*C.

 

You are giving an extra 0.1V, but you have got a better cooler.

 

Maybe my readings are messed up?? I do have 6 80mm fans (controlled :) )

 

Im not too worried. I'm only giving slightly more volts than stock and I have a good OC.

maybe I should start adding lots of fans in there....

 

Actual layout:

1x80mm front low side blowing to the other side (this crazy Vento layout...)

1x120mm back exhaust

1x120 side intake

1x120 cooling the Heatsink

1x80 blowing to the mosftets and ram (2 inches away)

You guys should work out what ambient you are both working at. If one of you has a room temp of 28-30 degrees and the other 10-12 that would explain vastly different results.
