That number is only on this forum, it's pulled directly from Intel's max specs....but obviously the manufacturer is going to give a very conservative maximum. They quote q6600 and conroes as 1.5 max VID...but we all know people put 1.55-1.6V through kentsfields allt he time and have been running since release (2 years now) without any problem whatsoever.

There are thousands and thousands of people who have been running wolfdales well above 1.4V from day 1 24/7 without issue. Myself included.

If it were as easy to fry as people thought people would be posting up all the time about how they killed their cpu..myself for 1 as I've clocked so darned many of them and put all sorts of voltages through them.

Makes sense I guess. Now that I think of it I sometimes wondered about that. With Q6600 you'll hear varying responses about what's safe: Intel's 1.5, less, more, etc.. Penryn hit and bam there was 1.36 right on the money. Interesting. So you're saying OCN somehow cooked up this number?

No, it's in the Intel documents.

Somebody at Intel is laughing at everybody who says you can't run a 45nm CPU past 1.3625V.

I actually read the processor datasheet. I would not hesitate to put the voltage all the way up to 1.45V, even with loadline calibration ON! The truth is, as written in the datasheet, Intel (at the time the processors were released) had absolutely no idea what the limits would be, so they basically just picked some numbers based on their simulations and being extremely conservative.

Interestingly, the VID table in the datasheet for the Q9xxx series chips goes all the way up to 1.6V. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
