Volts on x2 3800

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is there anyway to go higher than 1.5v. I want to get it up to around 1.6 but it won't let me go any higher in the bios. I was wondering how people get there volts up higher?

Some boards are limited.

The only way to conquer this would be to volt mod the motherboard (Don't know if thats even possible with yours) or buy a different motheroard.

I know for sure the A8N32 SLI has up to 1.575 plus Overvolts (1.775 effective)

Thats ALOT of VCore to be putting to your CPU without water cooling. What do you have your X2 3800+ at?

Ive gone up to 1.6 when I had mine, just keep temps around 50C, of course you will prob need a mobo that goes higher then your current, try a bios flash.

Even on water I wouldn't push past 1.65V (1.6V to be safe). Increased voltage (too much voltage) is bad to the CPU regardless of temps.

He cant push it higher bc hes saying that the CPU voltage value only goes up to 1.5

Well, as you're going for a motherboard with high voltages, I would say look for decent motherboards with heatsinks on the voltage regulators, such as the DFI SLI-DR (notice sinks between CPU and Power plug), unless you want to put waterblocks on those too.

If you want the power the "Expert" is on sale for a great price!
