Please take a look at where I am currently at
Temps are low on this pic, highest its been is Package 44C / CPU 61C ambient is around 23-24C
From what I have read (and ive asked a few times but no one has given me an answer) are my temps good, with regards to the voltage I am pushing ?
But with the voltage I am pushing some of you guys are at 5Ghz+
So should I push more volts or just accept that this is all this current chip will do ?
I ask this question as temps are good (are they) ?
So would have thought the CPU would respond to more voltage but it does not seem to want clock higher with more volts (still testing of course).
One. Went to the store, got my 8320, brought it home, updated BIOS, put it in my rig, kick the multi to x25 and volts to 1.5, turned it on, unstable, raised volts to 1.525, stable.
Been there ever since.
Anyway, what was the CPU VID? (Stock Voltage), and if possible, do you know the batch number?
