Maximum Recommended Voltages

Note: Be very careful when increasing voltages as setting them too high can destroy
the processor and other components on the motherboard.


Below is a list of the safe, maximum voltages that should be used for overclocking.
Any voltages not mentioned are best left at their Auto setting.
q CPU Core: 1.58750v
q CPU FSB: 1.5v
q Memory: 2.3v edit: I wouldnt go over 2.2v without additional mosfet cooling
q nForce SPP: 1.50v
I will say this, dont go over 2.2v on the vdimm, or 1.5v to the northbridge (called SPP in bios). You will most likely need 5-5-5-15 timings with 2.2v to run above DDR2 1000. Just be aware that the NVIDIA chipset cannot OC 4 modules as well as just 2. The 2 extra modules puts some strain on the memory controller. So you might not even get 1066 out of all 4 modules.

Link: I will recommend that you remove the NB and SB heatsinks, and the mosfet coolers and replace the terrible thermal paste applied at the factory with some AS cremique (or AS5 if you are carefull with your application).

If you do remove the NB, you will have to replace the SB since the heatsinks are connected with a heatpipe.

The Theramlright HR-05 SLI will be perfect for both NB and SB chips. The angled mount allows for fitments with any sized CPU cooler, and will allow a video card to fit over the base of the SB.

But yes, the NB can run hot. I've seen significant reduction in temps (can be 10 - 15°C) by reapplying the tim.

After looking it up, I think I'll go with the 780i instead since it's only about $40 more than the one I was gonna get.

Now, same questions as before, only with this board. How're the stock coolers, and will this one be able to handle all 4 DIMM slots filled with the PC8500 Crutial?

Thanks
