I just put together my new computer and couldn't resist overclocking.....at least an attempt.

I have not used this new type of BIOS so I have not changed anything except for the multiplier. I was hoping to get some help here.


Using Prime95
So far my temps are around 60 for a 46x multiplier (with fans at 100%).

1.288 Core Voltage in CPU-Z
VID = 1.3761 in Core Temp


My temps are at ~55 using a 40x multiplier (fans not set to annoying levels).

1.272 Core Voltage in CPU-Z
VID = 1.3511 in Core Temp
In the BIOS, the voltage floats right about 1.28


I don't know how to modify the specific voltages on this board to reduce temps, and I know it could help because auto voltages are typically higher; and it also seems that this chip can take a little more and I would like to know how to approach this. I know there are more than a couple threads on this, but there are way too many posts that really don't answer any questions. I am hoping someone can help me out if they have a very similar combination. I'm not even sure which voltage is the one I should be looking at.
