Which voltage to increase first?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Say you can either up your vCore, vFSB, or vNB by .5 to be stable.

Which would you increase first, second, last? or rather, which would have the least effect on increasing overall temp?

vcore in the early overclocking stages. Your other voltages are fine until you start getting up higher. Then you need to bump up the nb voltage and the fsb voltage.

Thanks for the quick reply,

Well I have a choice between raising my NB to 1.45v or vCore to 1.4v to be stable at 3.2ghz. It probably won't matter when I maxed out everything when I'm done, but asking never hurts

Additional note: I "HAD" to bump up my vFSB to 1.25 in order to get pass the BSOD on start up @ 300mhz FSB regardless of multiplier.

And yes, I do need a more precise voltage program. I can only do +/- 0.5v in the BIOS
