What's the highest I can push my CPU/NB voltage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey! I got bored, so I decided to do some tweaking. I've been running a 3000 MHz CPU/NB frequency for a while now at 1.45v. I decided I wanted to see if I could squeeze a little more, so I upped it to 3250 and bumped the voltage as needed. It's almost stable at 1.5v, but the voltages go red beyond that. I wanna push, but not if it gets destructive. I know that with heatsinks and my phase count that I can keep it cool, but how much voltage is too much? I know each one is different, so I'm asking anyone who's familiar with my board or series.

1.5v seems to be the highest people safely go. try changing your HTT around and see if that helps. or increase your ref clock and lower all your multipliers.

These are my voltage options. (Borrowed image. Not mine.) I've got everything else pretty much in harmony. That's why I was curious as to how far I could go with the CPU-NB voltage.

Nevermind. I don't think Windows likes it that high at any voltage. Oh well.
