When people say the max is 1.55V for PHII processors...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
are they saying that the max you should set the vcore in the bios is 1.55V, or the max the vcore should ever spike to in HWMonitor is 1.55V, or the max the vcore should hover around for more than a second is 1.55V?

For example, when I set the vcore in my bios to 1.475V, HWMonitor reports that my CPU is at 1.52V at full load with the occasional spike to 1.57V.

I have the load line calibration set to 0%.

They are talking about the bios.
The vcore should only go up when you are stressing the CPU, which you most likely are not doing 100%.


1.55 is more of a arbitrary value. If you pump more voltage into your CPU, it wont just break like that. It have great chances to reduce it's lifespan, but it's not guaranteed.

Generally extra voltage means your greatly reduce the life of your processor. You might be able to run a processor @ 1.55V perfectly fine - but it could die within a couple months to a year with all that extra voltage running through.

What about load line calibration? Doesn't that pretty much make the value set in the BIOS useless?

Also, how much voltage should it increase from 0% load to 100% load? My CPU increases by ~0.1V.
