so..which is that voltage wall? for example..i was drive mine 1055t at 1,55 V and 4,2 ghz like 3 years and..everything was fine.temp never pass 41 C..and i was using mine PC for editing photos,primary..and for some MMORPG games...so, is this wall like..stock voltage and litlle above or.. ?ty
There comes a point at which there are diminishing returns for the amount of voltage invested, each chip is different so it can vary by quite a bit. The 8370e has a very defined wall at 4.960 ghz which is higher than my other 8XXX's. At that clockspeed and below it is quite efficient by comparison, but to push beyond that clockspeed takes a ton more voltage. 1.44v vs 1.53 or so for just 100mhz of stable OC gained.
The FX's are very tolerant of higher voltages, so long as you can keep them cool.
