No, it certainly isn't shocking. And that's why I specifically mentioned that it's my "personal" point of view.

There are lots of anecdotal evidence that higher voltages are safe... for 6 months, a year, etc. Heck, even as someone said earlier, if you fry it, just replace it as it was a cheap part anyway... an absolute valid point. For me, I haven't upgraded since my Athlon 64 3500+, so you can figure out just how many years I'd like this system to last me. So, for me, the safer bet is for a more conservative voltage.

And by the way, I never meant to imply that YOU or anyone else specifically should never go near 1.45V... you purchased it, you do whatever you want with it. Intel engineers set a spec based on much thorough determinations other than just verifying thermal integrity, so for ME, I would never go anywhere near the spec'd Vmax. As I said you have valid points, unless you're an Intel engineer, you can't say that my point is invalid.

Well not 1.45V, cause I think we can all agree that isnt really smart for a 24/7 overclock, which most people try to achieve. But 1.4V on a 50% OC, running 24/7 isnt really shocking.

To say you should be nowhere near 1.45V, or like BlankThis worries going over 1.4V, better yet, 1.46V will fry your chip within a year, is wrong. (I could've misunderstood that part of his post though)

I totally agree. It's your proc, treat it how you want. If your happy with with your OC, then that's all that matters. Don't ever let someone else talk you into pushing it if your not comfortable doing so.


As far as your GPU being bottlenecked. It really depends on what your playing. Games that are more GPU dependent will not appear to be bottlenecked. Other games that are more CPU dependent you will notice the game lagging. Also, low resolutions will bottleneck a large GPU. What res do you play at?

I'm playing at 1280x1024 on an old crappy HP 19" LCD. At that resolution, I can turn every game on ultra max and use 4xAA/16 sample anisotropic filtering. With V-sync on at 75hz refresh, Fallout 3 was running nice and smooth at around 55-75fps! I really couldn't be happier.

I remember with the exact same video card, the Athlon system could only keep it steady at 35-55 fps. Definitely loving this e5200 upgrade!

I'm thinking maybe, if I had an even higher line Nvidia or ATI card, I probably could hang a steady 75fps even in Fallout 3 with everything maxed out. But, given what I'm already getting, I'm a happy camper.

And, agreed on the going nuts with voltage. Intel's data spec even says 1.45V max. In all honesty, you should be nowhere near that.


That why I got that impression, and what I responded on. I agree with you on the rest of your points, especially when you want to keep the chip running for a while, my max wouldnt be nowhere near 1.45V either.

Ah... I got a question.

So, I was thinking about rearranging my desk after I'm done school, and putting my tower on the floor. However, the thing is, also on the floor, there's my subwoofer. I really don't want to move that up on the desk for obvious reasons, I have a CRT monitor on the desk, and it is just... fat. I'm not worried about the magnetic field, because the computer will be 2 feet away from the subwoofer. But I'm wondering if the vibration from the subwoofer would do anything to my computer, I mean, maybe with enough vibration the pushpins will get shaken out and the HSF will fall? Or maybe just loosen it? Or maybe the HDD will die sooner?

The reason why I want to put it on the floor is because, well, cold air sinks, and when I open the windows, all the cold air is down there. And if it is worth mentioning, the subwoofer is 8" in diameter, and depending on the music that's going through it, I can actually feel the floor vibrating, and the wall too.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

You don't really want your hd vibrating when its writing data . Get a lcd off craigslist. I just sold one on there for 65 buck 17 inch.


Or you could get some sort of cushion under the tower. rubber foam IDK.

If that doesnt work check the all questions answer in my sig!!

Like, the subwoofer can drive low-frequency vibrations through the air, so cushioning on the bottom won't cut it. I mean, I can feel my jeans vibrating when music is playing. I guess I could try getting a LCD, a new 19" is only like $100.
