Voltage on M2N SLI Deluxe ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK this is what I NEED to know. On my board there are 2 settings for cpu vcore, 1 is in the jumperfree configuration, the 2nd is in jumperfree config under advance voltage control listed as cpu/chipset HT voltage. can someone explain what this is a little better than the manual? Will adding xtra voltage hurt my board, or does it help with stability? I know that add vlts adds to heat so I kinda need some input please!

Lunatic, changing the voltages can do both. Too much voltage can damage a component but the right amount can help stability. In regards to your processor, raising the voltage with overclocking will bring stability but can also raise temps. I typically recommend not going over 1.45volts with air cooling setups. High voltages over time can cause electromigration but we're talking like 1.5-1.6+ volts 24/7. With that I'd go with something more extreme like H2O.
Just make your best judgment and when you start to see the temperatures rise, drop the voltages and keep testing.

Good luck
