well, i just installed occt, and it shows the same vcore as cpuz and everest..

when i set in the bios the vcore at 1.45, then cpuz show the vcore at 1.475, so weird, is like 0,25v is floating around. i wanted to let it at 1,45, but it wasn´t estable in orthos or prime...


what should i do.?? cuz when i´m working or gaming the vcore jumps up at 1,55 and even 1,6v..

My mobo does the same thing. I'd urge you to set your vcore so that it jumps up to 1.55v max.

As I asked in the other post, it all depends on how long you think you'll keep your cpu. If you plan on upgrading within the next year or 2, then you could probably get away with how it is currently set. If you want to keep it longer, I'd do as I suggested above.

hey guys,

I am using the rig in my signature, and have heard that using 8GB RAM will hinder the overclocking capabilities of my computer. Is this true?

And how much will it hinder it? Also can someone explain to me why it will hinder it?

Many thanks

ok thank you, so what type of overclock do you think will be attainable with 8GB RAM? is it worth even overclocking it?

Hard to say but i reckon you will still hit the 3.3 mark if not more. They don't overclock big these chips.
