q9450 with asus p5ql-epu mobo , Too high voltage for 3.1ghz???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My motherboard doesnt allow me to set vcore, instead it allows a "cpu vcore offset" of 0, 50, 100, or 150mv. I tried boosting just to 2.8 with most settings on auto, 350 x 8 multiplier, and it kept crashing after loading windows... I bumped the voltage 50, 100, then finally 150. The computer is stable as **** right now at +150mv for a average vcore of 1.32 under load and about 1.28 idle. Also is that normal that the vcore changes so much? The system has been running about 41 idle 55 under load and 58,59 MAX core temps at this clock (3.1ghz) and vcore (1.32). Is this OK? everything seems fine Ive been playing bf3 and starcraft for three days full graphics no problem no bsods no crashes... Is keeping voltage this high OK or is there another way I can decrease it and keep stability. Also the specs for this cpu state safe range up to 1.3625.. so it technically is still below safe range. I just dont understand how so many others got higher clocks on this CPU with less voltage. Is it maybe my mobo? I mean my temps are pretty good so should I be worried at all?

1.35 is the upper limit without extreme cooling for the 45nm quads from what I understand so your ok
