voltage spike

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When running prime95 i see a voltage spike of 1.58 im just wondering if this is normal i have it at 1.5v in bios to test 4.2 and maybe higher and i know that 1.55 is supposed to be max for these chips.


Edit: after reading some about it found out its due to LLC just wondering if its safe to have it jump like that and will any other programs spike it that high or just prime95?

If you have LLC enabled the motherboard provides the CPU as much voltage as it demands. As such there is a good chance that if you're close to the max voltage regularly, there can be spikes over the max threshold. I don't think this is safe, though the CPU might take it for a while before starting to degrade.

The Thubans will have issues with voltages for lengthy periods of time upwards of 1.5v; so if under load you're topping off at 1.58~, you should definitely try to lower your voltage or change the LLC settings to compensate more accurately.

Pumping voltage through chips will kill them...
