New to the OC game, any tips on lowering my V's?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, 1st time poster!

I'm in the process of building a new rig, and I have everything in except for a new GPU (still using my old one for the moment). I've done quite a bit of reading on overclocking and wanted to try it out, so I spent the better part of a weekend messing around and getting to where I am as of right now. My system is running stable both through about 10 hours of Prime95 and through a 10 pass standard run of IBT. Temps right now max out about 55C under full load and about 30C gaming.

My question to you guys is A. Does my voltage look okay (I feel like 1.45-1.46 might be a little high), and B. Are my temps okay? Any suggestions you have for me would be greatly appreciated!!!

I don't think you should worry much about yo temps, they look pretty low for an o.c'd 6 core cpu. I'm not an AMD user myself but I don't think you have a reason to worry about those temps. Now your voltages on the other hand seem a little bit high but I understand that those cpu's use around 0.98v to 1.4125v running on stock (i might be wrong) but I guess all in all you are within the safe zone.

doesn't your mobo have an option of lowering the vCore?

It does, however it seems like where I'm at is the lowest the system wants to go before I start getting instability. Main reason I find myself questioning my voltages is because I see CPU-Z screenshots of people running around the same OC as me, but with much lower voltages. Right now I'm running the F6K beta bios, CnQ off, and Auto power management off to keep voltage/OC stable, rather than bouncing around.

You are fine, volts on FX are not considered high until 1.5v.

~1.45v is about normal for the speed you are running.
