How to raise cpu voltage?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty sure some of you are laughing at me right now haha but I'm really new to overclocking and need some guidance. Last night I overclocked my 955 BE to 3.8Ghz with a FSB of 200.

My current cpu voltage is 1.45v.

Question is.. is that a good voltage for this overclock? or do I need to raise it up a bit? and if so HOW? I tried going into my bios and setting it up to 1.5 but it just gave me some numbers I couldn't recognize like "0.9523523" certainly I'm just making that up, but you get the point.

Is there anything else I should do to make it stable?

I ran prime 95 for about 45 minutes.. nothing seemed wrong, didn't crash or anything. Played bad company 2 for several hours aswell.. and nothing seemed wrong same with GTA 4.

Guidance is appreciated! Thanks

Ya thats a good voltage but I would run Prime for about 2 to 3 hours to see if it rock solid.Also try this program for your stress testing.
