r u sure u need so muc vcore, try lower cuz u know that all they do is manufacture faster chips and then the ones that are defective at one speed they sell as a slower speed so it should not need so much vcore.

So it shows a difference....

What are your temps like at that voltage?

More voltage helps the higher overclock but that is quite high for 3.4ghz

What have you set for the NB ?

voltage seems a touch high really. nearly 20% over default.

i'd drop it down
