Well, the tube I am talking about is just for filling the res. You can take it off after you have full circulation and enough levels.

My question is about voltage, when it's at stock my voltage is 1.42xx in bios, if I set it at 4.2ghz with amd od my voltage stays at 1.32 with a few jumps and dips. What do you suggest a good starting place is to set the manual voltage and since I'm under what auto/stock I'm actually better off even if I go up to ~1.37 right. Please don't judge if it's a stupid question. Again this is my first oc experience
Stock differs from an OC system. The Voltages you see on stock are (I'm guessing) AUTO. They seem high, but when you think of Turbo requirement, it's just fine.
Heat output will also be different. APM, Cool n' Quiet, and Power Saving options keep the chip cooler.
But yeah, here's my take:
4.2 might just need less than 1.3
Disable Turbo, APM, and other Power Saving options. Reboot to Bios,
You will see you VCore at a much lower value than stock. That's your chip's VID.
Manually enter that Value (VID) and Try for 4.2
If that fails, try it a step higher.
I wont be telling you the Voltages as it will be dependent on your cooling. So take it a step at a time.

on OCN heard of anyone with a giga board going over the 2000? I have 1866 now at 1720 because of FSB and it's tuned really well in IMO so I"ve left it there.
No sir, I am not.
But yeah, 2133 and up is pretty easy when you OC. @Mega Man
I think is doing 2400 on his UD7.
Try your kit to OC at say, 2133.
229 FSB, Keep CPU-NB around 2600.
Timings set to default or XMP. (9-11-9-27-CR1 for example)
Set Voltage for the DRAM to 1.685 (for 1.65) or 1.735 (1.7)
Try if you can reboot toBIOS and Windows.
You might also try 2000 CL 9.
Use FSB to 250. CPU-NB at 2500Edited by mus1mus - 7/30/15 at 8:41pm
