also maybe someone could help me understand this. I am stable at the current settings above but for quick performance tests i will use the AOD benchmark thing (i know how fail AOD is but like i said its a quick reference for me to see if what i had b4 was better or worse). But if i dump some volts into my OC i have been up to 1.6vcore b4 i will get about 1000 extra points i didnt have b4! Now i knoW AOD is fail boat maybe its just not a very accurate representation of a benchmark, And i also know 1.6v is insane with my cooler to be stable and dangerous for the chip possible, But why is this?
Okay, I have seen and heard of many people having trouble loading windows 7 with the core unlocked and the same chip work perfect with vista and xp, I am not sure as to why. Also I have seen chips work unlocked in 32bit OS's and the same chip not work in 64bit. So i would imagine that they have something wrong in a 64 bit function of the cpu's bad core and thats why it is disabled.
As for the volts giving you a higher score. Did you know under load that your cpu will draw more power then not under a load. The more power available the more the chip can use. The highier the volts are set for the cpu the more watts it can draw. If your chip is set too high in clock and there is not enough watts the cpu will become unstable. In your case your cpu could use more watss then you were feeding. It was running but could have used even more watts and performed better even at the clock speed you were clocked. Most of the time in that case the cpu is very unstable but if it can run stable with less watts then it will just have a lesser amount of throughput. Does that make since to you as sometimes I dont explain theings well
