My max temp is 45. How high should I up the voltage for a 24/7 gaming rig?

Remember you are on the internet as well, so 1 core will have to work on that from time to time.

970A-G46 4+1 Yes 125W Disputed No Under review Unknown 4 transistors? 8-pin ATX Currently under review; VRM protection supposedly added w/BIOS 7693v14; will THROTTLE with FX 8-core

Disputed for usage in overclocking. I'd go at 4 and no more. If you can't risk motherboard blowing up, I'd do 3.8 max.


FYI you shouldn't have to do 3.6ghz that's way too low for any chip! smile.gif That's the good news.


Goodies I loved and were extremely important as my Phenom II was my first chip and learning to overclock.

If you keep the temp under 60c than 1.55v is the max and safe voltage for the Phenom II chips.

Thank you for the links, I already have read the first one and it is very informative!

XD_1771 said it is a good mobo to oc on with the VRM protection on it. This is the only reason I'm helping oc this Phenom II on this mobo.
