vcore good enough for 2.43? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
1.65v is fine as long as your temps are low. but be sure you're watching your core temps and not your CPU temps..

I think having at 1.65 makes it deteriorate over time. If you care for her then drop it down a bit.

An increase in voltage will also increase "tunneling" inside the CPU. There is a FAQ on this in the FAQ section, but it basically means your gates in the CPU are buggering up because of electrons going mental. This is not measurable in temperature, so it will kill 'em without you noticing. There are many other sensitive parts in the CPU, which all suffer from increased voltage.

This is why 1.6v is a bit too much for standard air cooling - even if your temps are good.
