Help my oc please 750iftw and 8400

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have my 8400 at 3.8ghz at 1.38v in bios but 1.344 in cpuz. Under load it goes down to 1.328 volts.
No matter what i do with my volts i fail prime 95, so i have an assumption that it might be the northbridge volts.
So i changed nForce spp to 1.40v as well as nf200 to 1.40v
Are these safe voltages? What would someone recommend? If you have the same types of oc, what are your voltages?

Also, what should i set my cpu fsb to in bios (volts)? I seen many people at 1.40 or 1.45 but i have mine still at 1.35 because im not to sure what it does or what the volts should be.

I would recommend setting the FSB to 1.4v. Does your motherboard have different voltages listed in red or green? My 780i does, the green ones are considered safe and red considered dangerous. White are safe as well.
