Could I OC Even Higher Now?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay, So I whipped out an 80MM Fan I had and stuck it to the VRMs (By squeezing it in-between the I/O Shield and the H50's Block snug) And the VRM's are only slightly warm at load now. Overall Board Temp Dropped 3C. Since the VRM's are cooler, could I potentially throw more voltage through the CPU?

As long as your load temps stay under 80c, increasing the vcore is ok. You dont want 24/7 80c thats not good, 24/7 60c's is good. But if your temps are good, up the V's

You have to ask yourself if the extra voltage is worth the extra 50mhz-100mhz you'd be getting(useless to me). It's pretty daunting to have your VRMs fry and have to RMA your board for 2-3 weeks.

If you have a replacement board, by all means go for it. The most I would go is 1.5v. I've done 1.55v-1.6v before and that got my VRMs fried.

Remember, your VRMS are not heatsinked and you are running on a 3+1 phase board.

Bad advice bro, OP has AMD chips, where the max load temp is 62C. As long as your temps stay at 55-58C, you should be good, but VRMs also get stressed no matter how cool they are.

You could possibly push some more vcore through, however temp isnt the only thing that will effect the overclocks you can ahieve. Heat on the vrms is a issure that can effect the maximum overclock but what has more effect is the quality of power the vrms produce. 4ghz is pretty good for a 550BE and i dont think that shaving 3*C is going to improve anything.

The Overall Board Temp was dropped 3C, Not just the VRM's man. VRM's Went from Hot to Slightly Warm Under 100% Load

BTW, I have yet to see 40C On my Chip Overclocked.

if your only at 40c

push it

The great words of advice from 'God'.

Yeah, The VRM's Arent hot at all under load anymore, and that's a good sign.
