Auto voltages

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. I overclocked my i7 920 to 3.6 ghz using BIOS. My core temps looks pretty cool, and everything seems to be functioning without any problems. I followed a guide on youtube for overclocking my i7 920, but it left my voltages on auto. Will this damage my CPU as it is now? My CPU rarely goes above 50 on load, so it seems that my system seems stable, but i wanted to get some kind of confirmation on this.

What is the voltage at?

a better gauge would be to get information as to how much voltage is being pumped to your chip. Use cpu-z or HWMonitor to chech the voltage when under full load to get a better understanding.

core voltage is 1.376 v while i am typing this.

if it is just the only thing you are doing at the moment, its way to high. If it is under load, then, it is okay. But also, what is the temps that you are getting ??

Core #0: 45 degrees celcius
Low: 44 degrees celcius
High: 53 degrees celcius
Load 0-1%

Core #1: 39 degrees celcius
Low: 44 degrees celcius
High: 47 degrees celcius
Load: 0-1%

Core #2: 42 degrees celcius
Low: 41 degrees celcius
High: 50 degrees celcius
Load: 0-1%

Core #3: 39 degrees celcius
Low: 39 degrees celcius
High: 47 degrees celcius
Load: 0-1%

aha, your temps are high and so is your voltage. You must reduce the voltage FROM THE BIOS as that would help lower the temp

Can you pinpoint a safe spot regarding voltage as i forgot the most of how to overclock?

what motherboard do you have ??

also, intel states the VID should stay below 1.375v.
here the guide for you to refer

Guys, i own a c0/c1 stepping if that matters, as i read that they need more vcore.
