MOBO: Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H
cooler: air cooled after market (don't remember the brand, but its pretty decent) cooler
I can't get my CPU stable at 3.9GHZ with voltages less than 1.5V. From reading around this quite a bit higher than the average. On top of this I can't even get the stock 3.2GHZ with voltages @ 1.374~1.4V. Which also seems to be trending higher than average. Temps stay between 53-55C and get a bit flaky above 55C. If I keep the temps down 3.9GHZ stays stable for days of 100% CPU usage.
I have the best success when I keep the voltage settings on 'auto'; manually putting the mobo to 1.5v won't stay stable. Im using the stock clock frequency at 200 MHZ. Could I get more stability with a higher clock freq and lowering the multiplier and then perhaps lowering the voltage as well? Not sure if all of these are related.
Thanks in advance
