vcore questions....oc style!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok I tried to get a nicer OC on my x3210 last night...problems started.

I could not get a stable overclock above 440fsb. Now I didnt want to go above 1.375 volts because the box says 1.35max. With vdroop I was in the 1.335 range which I thought was acceptable.

Now the questions:

1) How are people running those procs up to 3.7-3.8ghz without using voltage that would burn up the proc???

2) Is there an acceptable + or - range of voltage or is it 1.35 no matter what?

3) I wasnt even close to the thermal limits of this proc...does that mean I dont have to worry about going up to 1.38-1.4?

4) I looked for a vdroop pencil mod for the p5k3...could not find it. Anyone know of one or did it and how did it come out?

Thanks peeps!

It's ok to up the vcore some more, < 1.45 is safe.

Oh yeah, did you enable vdamp, or it could be load line calibration.
