Well the logical reason to ask such a question would be so you could overclock YOUR cpu, not someone else's Intel CPU. You could have easily found out what high voltage does to CPUs in general by googling something like, I don't know, "what does high voltage do to cpus" and you would have gotten pretty clear answers.

My point was that if you want to know what is considered a "high" voltage for your CPU, you will need to post it in the AMD forum section.

Im learning to overclock and I have some questions about voltage:
When overclocking a cpu what effect does voltage have? When do you need to increase or decrease the original voltage? How do you know if you have an unstable over clock because of low voltage? rolleyes.gif
You document everything you tested. You will have data about a lot of different overclocks, including the voltage you used and other settings you changed from default, and what tests that overclock passed. Because of all that documentation, you will be able to guess if the voltage is the cause of a failing overclock, or if it might be time to try other settings to get it stable. You can for example draw a graph of multiplier and voltage and will be able to see if something is off at the new multiplier you are trying to get stable.
