My voltage is reading between 1.45 and 1.5 volts, is this fine?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am overclocking my 4200+ X2 manchester processor and it is currently sitting at 2.57GHz on 1.45/1.5 volts. My temperature at idle is 39 degrees celcius with a Big Typhoon VX cooler and under load it will go up to 45 degrees celcius. My temperatures seem fine but how hot is to hot? I think I will try to go for 2.58-2.59GHz soon with the currenct voltages but I'm thinking that the temerature shouldn't move much.

Too hot would be over 50C load and yes your 1.45/1.5 volts is ok, it is called vDroop and it happens to everyone

I've seen people go up to 1.65 volts so 1.5 should be no problem

I'd keep the temp under 55c
