i dont know where you get these values from but a nb undervolt takes a long time to show in p95 usually around 4+ hours.
I usually bump the NB to 1.23 - 1.3 for stability for the a mild OCs I give for clients. Usually their NB end in the 2300 to 2400 max range. I always DO bump it up a little anyway as to be certain of stability.
I am speaking of the NB voltage, not the CPU/NB volts, which I usually leave at default auto settings. For the most part I am against auto volts but this seems to work well and I dont really care to tweak it down, as the OCs arent too high anyway.
I re read my post and I did leave out that most important differentiation. My bad
Some ppl never adjust the NB chipset voltage, I found it does help stability.
I have OCed a very many phenom 2s but most are for people who bought BEs and didnt know how to, so it I keep it small and simple. I work in a shop in TN. After i find the max OC on stock volts, I bump the a small amount to be completely sure.
