P5Q Pro + E8400 - voltages

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I was wondering, that would be less than now, by changing the all voltages from auto to something. When I overclocked, I only increased the CPU voltage to get high, but I'm just thinking about it.

I got NB, RAM.. all of them, whatever, so, they're all on auto, I heard, that it's not good, so, I just wanted to know, what should I do.

I thought you got your processor to 4ghz already? If auto works, I don't see a reason to change it to manual.

If you're looking to downvoltage, then some BIOS do not tell you the current value. Not sure if the Asus P5Q Pro is like this. This would mean that you'd have to reoverclock your processor again from stock and increase voltage accordingly. This is the only sure way to find the lowest value for all your voltages.

If you just plugin numbers it's a hit or miss.

The best scenario is to use the lowest possible voltage while still maintaining stability. Assuming that your E8400 is the E0 stepping revision, it probably won't need much more than 1.3v on the vcore. Set the RAM voltages to the manufacture recommended. The P45 northbridge to 1.22-1.35v (probably doesn't need to be over 1.3).

It's currently running at 4.05 GHz, and I was just asking about the lower voltages, because the motherboard's temperature is around 45`C and CPU LOAD 50`C.
