Is Vcore = 1.32 V too high on i7 920??? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
1.32 voltage is fine for 24/7. Can easily do 1.35

Also, for stability bump up the QPI voltage to 1.35 - but don't go above that.

What you will find is that getting to 3.8 is really easy on the 920 with voltages lower than 1.32 even.

But it takes a lot of adjustments to get to 4.0.

If you can be happy with 3.8 - just do that. You will have a fast, stable and long term viable system.

Good luck!

PM me if you want more info.

also, you don't necessarily need to have faster RAM. You can get to 4G and just make sure that you set you memory to the right speed.

So if I go back to 1.35V for 3.7 Ghz, I should be fine? I shouldn't see any longevity issues right?

Sorry about the worrying, I just don't want to have to replace the chip (even if it's not my personal rig) in 8 months.

Thanks for the quick response.

I will have to PM you tomorrow for some more info. I'm having trouble with stability below 1.32, maybe the QPI voltage to 1.35 will fix my probs with stability. I also didn't touch my ram settings, maybe that will help with stability also. I would be stoked at 3.8 with a long term viable system for sure!
