CPUZ is very innacurate with voltages for C2D's, dont' trust it. Mines at 1.47 but its telling me 1.213 so yea lol, for voltages get something like motherboard monitor 5 or everest home edition

Yeah CPU-z isn't able to detect the correct vcore if its over 1.5.

Try Everest or something.

I beg to differ.

From my understanding, temp. is the main reason why you cannot overclock as high as you could.

Yes, the architecture of the chip itself should also be considered; however, even if a chip is guaranteed to overclock from 3 Ghz to 4 Ghz, if your temp. is 59*C load at 3.1 Ghz, you cannot overclock to 4 Ghz.

That's why phase change is very ideal because it keeps the CPU cold, thus allowing the resistivity of a CPU to drop, allowing one to achieve a higher overclock with more voltage.

It's safe to keep it under recommended max voltage, but the life span taken away by voltage higher than recommended would be relatively small.

I believe a CPU at stock is to last at least ten years. People upgrade every 3~4 years nowadays. Less than a year if you're rich. So even if your vcore is a bit high, as long as the temp. is fine, the CPU life span will be cut down by only a few years.

In Desperado's case, since the system is unstable with his vcore, it is recommended that he take the vcore down a notch.

Oh noz! I can't get vcore lower than 1.525v If I do that, I get blue screen and it restarts. Does this mean that i have to lowerclock my cpu again or what??

unfortunately sounds like you will have to lower the clock. Whats your NB voltage at? If its low, it might help abit if you up it a tad

You gotta get the clock down, bud.

I don't know much about NB. I've never thought it would help me achieve higher clock.

Loosening RAM timings?

RAM was 5-5-5-15 now it's 4-4-4-12. Is this better?
