[vr-zone] QX9770 C1 Stepping first test - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Howcome its clocked at 1.55V for 445 fsb then? Surely thats gonna break it then?

It will given time, that's like 1.7 volts on 65nm.

45nm chips can overclock quite a bit more than 65nm chips. Most people here just pump Vcore into their chips as their method of getting high clocks. I see plently of more experience overclockers running around with 4Ghz on the new 45nm under the max recommended voltage. It is the new people that pump 1.55V into their 45nm and then don't understand why it doesn't work. 45nm doesn't need as much voltage to clock.

45nm cannot physically take as much voltage as 65nm no matter what you do to it. It isn't a problem with Intel i think the silicon is just more delicate or something.
The reason that it is more sensitive to voltage is because the insulation shielding the transistors from each other is very thin. Apply a high enough voltage to the CPU and the electrons go straight through the insulation... shorting out your CPU.
