Good day all, I was bored last night so i figured i'd try something not nearly as likely to damage my cpu as overclocking, particularly since i currently have the stock heat sink so I wont be doing that anytime before i get a new cpu cooler. I was actually quite surprised, with cpu spread spectrum off, as well as any other power contol devices, I was able to drop my voltage quite a bit. Stock as far as im aware is 1.375, first test i did was at 1.265 in bios, voltage acording to cpuz at idles was a 1.224, at full load it went to about 1.176. my lowest i could get was a 1.25700 or right about, voltage at idle was 1.212 at full load 1.164. I was actually quite surprised. for reference at auto settings, i was hitting 1.146 at idle and between 1.224-1.236 at load. Now for a quick question, does undervolting give me any idea what i can achieve with overclocking later on when i get a better cooler?
