E8400 voltage at 1.392v in CPU-Z!! Bad...?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm at 4Ghz, using auto-voltage, and CPU-Z says 1.392v.
Should I set a manual value?

I didn't even know the board would push that much...I thought it would identify the CPU, and limit the voltage to whatever the safe range would be...
In Orthos it fails after 10 minutes or so, does that mean it doesnt have enough juice?? At 3.6Ghz, it ran for 8 hours no problem.

Thats probably a little too much voltage for the health of your cpu. I think over 1.36 you will run into degredation issues (over a period of time). Some run them that high but I probably wouldnt advise it, especially if you use it alot. I set mine to 3.8 as I honestly dont think there is a real world difference between 3.8 and 4.0. (in gaming mainly)

Always set your voltages manually.

Turn of C1E and Speedstep (or EIST) in the BIOS. It lowers the multi to save power and lower voltage.

OP: Always set voltage manyally 1.36 is the max I would run but others would argue otherwise.

Yes. your multplier is 6X. it needs to be 9X

thanks for this but i cant find it. any ideas to its wereabouts would be greatly appreciated

edit: its very funny cause i decided to overclock to 3.6ghz using 400 FSB and cpu v of 1.3685 and now in cpuz, the cpu multipier keeps changing from 6X to 9x. ok this is worrying me now
