Voltage question -- vdroop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I belive that's the term. So let's say I set my cpu voltage to 1.350 and then load up cpuz and orthos. Cpuz will report the voltage at something like 1.224 then once I start the orthos application it will drop to 1.208 and stay there until I stop the program (serveral hours).

Is my processor ever being fed the 1.350 volts I entered in the bios? I'm curious about this because I would really lilke to crank it up for some testing but I don't want to trash the chip.

If I enter 1.4v in the bios and cpuz reports 1.350 under load should I go with that value?

thanks

No, your computer is never getting the actual 1.3500 volts. If you want to go higher, put it above the value that you want (say put it at like 1.43 for 1.0) and gradually raise the voltage until you get the desired value
