Yes intel specifies it because there are going to be chips that are at the MAX and MIN of their VID range, most will run at a point in between, but there are some users that will get ones in the higher or maximum range
Not going to fry the chip, and if for some odd reason it does, then its up to Intel to RMA it
- OEM manufactures run their chips high all the time, take a look at the VCORE on most prebuilt computers, its usually jacked up pretty high to ensure that every chip will run even if its not a great chip, no worries
*edit* from what I've read it is 1.52 as corrected, intel also has the ability to over volt beyond the specified vid for short periods of time, not sure if this applies as well? Just throwing out suggestions Edited by appleg33k85 - 5/3/11 at 9:00am
