Oh wow, congrats on the OC. Generally from reading the posts it seems like the highest safe voltages (that won't shorten the CPU's life) are around 1.5v-1.55v.... I wouldn't go any higher than that....
BTW is your 3.6ghz stable with prime95 or some other stress testing program?
The reason i'm asking about that is i was able to get to 3.6ghz with 4cores but it wasn't stable for more than 45min. It seemed to be stable at 3.2ghz with 4cores.....
Think3r... good point... didn't think of the low voltage thing but sounds like some really poor quality control then. But the likelyhood of 2 boards in row?? That is really far fetched....Edited by MrAMD_Fan - 8/15/09 at 10:31am
