im not that happy with it. on idle voltages, or under load without a drop, is still do have a voltage of 1,47. its not a stable voltage on 1,42V, so i cant just turn it up. the effective voltage at 1,51 volts wil be i believe somewhere in the vicinity of 1,44/1,45 volts, with spikes to its normal voltage of 1,5V.
does anybody know how far i can turn my 8150 up to with a voltage of 1,45V? because thats how far i can get without blowing my cpu up (if 1,51V is a safe voltage. i hope it can do higher, but i havent researched that yet)
I'm also not happy with turning my busspeed up, because my vengeance memory wont allow overclocking -_- i hate that memory but it looks so good. i can only play with my cpu voltage and my cpu multiplier. or are there other voltages that i need to worry about? i have lost the art of overclocking a bit... i didnt go as deep with this cpu as i did with my athlon 2 x4 640.
