Whats a safe OC voltage for a QX6800

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just have a quick question. What is the safe voltage to use to OC my QX6800 at??? Currently I have my CPU OC to 3.5GHz at 1.43 volts. Is this to much?? At what point to I start reaching the Yellow and the Red areas for OC it?

i would say you shouldnt go any higher than 1.5 volts. but most people have temperature problems before they reach that voltage. make sure you keep your load temp under 60C. you could do more than 1.5v for benchmarking but i wouldnt go that higher for everyday use.
