Just ran VCCSA @ 1.5v by mistake :stun:

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Like the title says, while overclocking with my X79 board, I confused my RAM voltage with VCCSA voltage and set the VCCSA at 1.500v, I then used my computer for about 45min before getting a BSOD..

Do you guys think this stupid mistake damaged my CPU?? The computer runs fine but I'm just stressing about having partially damaged my CPU doh.gif.

Wouldn't want to do that again, but I'm willing to bet that everything is still okay now. I'd try running some benchmarks or other things to stress your system to see if you run in to problems. If everything goes well, no need to worry

Wow, I literally Sh.... myself today.

Running OCCT right now @ stock speed. I red somewhere that over-volting the VCCSA is a NO NO and 1.5v is insane. Why do they allow it to go all the way up to 1.8v then??

That's true biggrin.gif I have never heard of a reason why it would be beneficial to overvolt the VCCSA, so it's odd that there is that option. My guess is that the VCCSA has to be set by the BIOS one way or another, so the ability to adjust is just part of having an unlocked bios!

Ok, just did 30min of OCCT and 30min of Linx (CPU+IMC stress test) at stock speed. That should do, didn't run into problems thumb.gif

I'm wondering if Asus boards have some protection against over volting to prevent damage to the CPU or other hardware? It really sounds unreal that you can push the VCCSA to 1.8v.

Great, glad to hear it!

That's a good question, although my guess is probably not. I have an AsRock board that also lets you take the VCCSA to crazy voltages. I think it is more likely that more voltage like that really isn't all that damaging. As an example, Ivy Bridge ULV (low power laptop chips) usually run around 1 V, but it is known that you can run Ivy Bridge cores up to crazy voltages like 1.6V without permanently damaging them (with proper cooling). So, my thought is that like how the parts of the chip that can handle higher vcore voltages, the parts powered by vccsa also can actually run much higher.

I did some quick research and found that increasing the VCCSA can be important for getting crazy high BCLK overclocks, which is probably why it is able to be changed.

Very high voltage settings are enabled for extreme overclocking, especially in a board like yours that's made for extreme OCing.

It's not really hard to kill an SB-E by giving it too much volts.

Does killing a SB-E with high voltage happens straight away/ after a few days of usage? Or is it a process that takes a lot longer by degrading the CPU little by little?

Depends on the amount of voltage you use.

I've never heard of anyone running 1.5 vccsa for anything so I can't really say how that will affect the chip long term but if it passes stock stress tests and overclockability hasn't decreased then it's probably fine.
