lynnfield max safe voltages?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
been awhile since i attempted to overclock over 4.0ghz, i was curious what is the safe max vcore for this cpu was, i was under the impression it was 1.32 volts, but i recently read it was up to 1.40 volts.

i've also read that vtt max safe volts was 1.15, any help would be appreciated it

I've also read anywhere from 1.35-1.40v. I'd say wherever you are comfortable running your CPU at in that range should be fine for 24/7, keep an eye on temps, and when you see temps you don't like, stop there.

i7 and i5 lynnfield max voltage limits:

Intel spec pre 875k: vcore 1.5v, vtt 1.21v
Intel spec Post 875k: vcore 1.4v, vtt 1.4v

Intel revised the lynnfield spec when the 875k was released. Which to use? I choose the latter, though there is probably a middle ground as well. Consider too that Intel states that max "safe" vtt is really 1.155v regardless of the above max limits.
