EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR Voltage drop when overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can get a stable 3.2 GHz from my E6600 but when I go to 3.4 GHz I get the BSOD often. I used CPU-Z and it shows that my processor voltage at 3.2 GHz is a steady 1.432 volts but at 3.4 GHz CPU-Z shows the voltage fluctuating down to 1.1 volts or lower. It doesn't matter if I have it set to Auto or 1.5 volts in the BIOS.

I'm guessing that at 3.4 GHz the CPU is drawing more power than the motherboard can provide. Am I correct and is there anyway around this? Thanks for any help

That board can give a good,juice to your chip.And i don't recommend cpu-z for check the volt's you better use speed fan.And is some v droop mod you can do for that board too.
