Hmm i see, so far i'm on 1.5V with 3.6GHz, running stable on prime95 for 2 hours so far, temperatures around 35C. I'm still skeptical about that temperature heheh but if the BIOS says so, nothing could go wrong right?
Is there any difference with CPU and core temperature? what is that core anyway, i'm using speedfan beta now, just afraid that some readings might get mixed up.
I'm planning to try above 3.6ghz and see if i can achieve that below 1.55V. There's nothing more to do if i adjust the multiplier and voltage to get a certain speed right? Is either I can or cannot? or there's other settings I need to do in order to get a speed without using much voltage? hmmmm
