Safe to run 4.2ghz at 1.5v 24/7?

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Hey all got a quick question. I've been struggling to get 4.2ghz stable on my thuban and I know that I'm probably not pushing enough vcore to keep stability. I've been trying to keep it under 1.475v cuz I didn't feel comfortable going past that but I figured if I want 4.2ghz, I'm gonna have to push more vcore. Would it be safe to run 1.5v 24/7? Thanks

I would stay below 1.475 for 24/7 operation. While 1.5V is okay for benching , its not good to keep it that high.

Drop down to 4Ghz even and lower voltage to 1.475. Try for lower if you are stable but for my 1100T it seems to be the "sweet spot".

Ya I kinda figured it would be bad for the chips. Aight I guess I'll just drop it back to 4.0 giggle-hurtz and see where that takes me. Thanks!

Plus, the biggest thing confusing me is that I had it stable before hand at 4.0 but with 1.375vcore! Why would I need such a huge voltage jump just to scrape out .2 more ghz?

That's how AMDs are. They have a wall around 4.1/4.2. Only lots of volts will get u there.

i take that back it most likely wouldnt be running 24/7. the only reason i said that was for the folding wars. normally it would see 4 hours a day maybe 6.
