Want to push a bit further- max safe voltage?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Going back to push a bit more out of my CPU- Athlon x2 BE-2300- general 65nm athlon x2. Currently I'm hanging around 1.3v, I've gone as high as 1.45v on suicide runs. Anyone know a safe-ish max voltage for longterm use/stress? I want to get at least 1-2 more years out of it. Also, temps should not be a problem- last time I was playing around I stayed ~55C max around 1.45v.

Thanks for the help.

I used to run my Brisbane 3600 x2 at 1.55v full time, its going on 3.5 years old and still running strong. I would keep temps under 60C and stop at 1.5v max if you want to be safe.

Well, considering AMD has released the 6000+ brisbane which runs stock @ 1.4v, you should be fine at 1.45v-1.5v.

I use 1.5-1.55v max, though I feel safest with 1.5max suicides I've gone upwards of 1.7v, though I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS!!!!

I did it when idle temps were down at 15c, with my room freezing cold.

I sit at just under 50c load with 1.5v though

Thanks for the input, I'll throw the voltage up to 1.4-1.5 and see how it goes.
