So I'm now permanently running my computer with the CPU @ 4ghz[250x16] (1.52V), NB-CPU @ 2750mhz[250x11] (1.372V). I noticed I needed my NB voltage to be 1.26, as 1.25 would get no boot. Temps are 40C CPU@idle and 44-47C NB@idle.

By switching my NB-CPU multi from 11 to 12, I would get 3000mhz for my NB, but it required me to bump up my voltages significantly. I needed a stunning 1.5V for NB-CPU and 1.45V for NB. There was no change in CPU temps and NB temps went up about 4-5C(52C idle). Though my temps are fine, do you guys not recommend using such a high amount of voltage for permanent usage?

Just curious, but if the NB voltage has nothing to do with overclocking the NB frequency, how come I need it at 1.45V to cold boot a 3ghz NB OC? Anything lower and I get no boot. Same goes for a 2750mhz NB OC, I need it at 1.26V to get a cold boot otherwise 1.25V or lower gets no boot. Is there really no correlation or is it all in my head?

I have preordered the new g73 A1 laptop. I feel kinda bad for getting an intel i7 chip but amd doesn't have much in newer tech for mobile chips. Though I did get an ati mobile 5870 graphics card.
OMG TRAITOR! LOL, nah cool stuff dude, those R5870 mobile chips rock

I personaly have allways used cpu multi for oc'ng,sometimes a slight oc on the HTT,thats what BE cpu's are about.

Congrats. And I agree, it looks like tiny wads of bubblegum. Perhaps that's what they use afterall...

Anyway, I found that TMPIN1, TMPIN2, and TMPIN3 in AOD correspond to Temp1, Temp2, and Temp3. In Speedfan. I'm pretty sure these are all in the CPU die in my motherboard, so they're at least close to what I want. Temp1/TMPIN1 always is the highest, should I assume it's my CPU temperature?

LOL that's what I thought! I thought they finally found a use for all that gum under those desks.

Well...i pulled out a lot of it with a small flat screwdriver and it was a pain...it was really sticky and stretchable stuff, very unlike TIM....the last part was removed with a small drop of artic cleaning fluid and a microfiber cloth...

I thought it would take some time to get the whole thing done, but I actually finished in 5 minutes flat...

I personaly have allways used cpu multi for oc'ng,sometimes a slight oc on the HTT,thats what BE cpu's are about.
I thought one benefit of increasing the HT ref clock as opposed to only increasing the CPU multiplier was that it effects everything its connected to, so you would see an increase in memory speed, NB, etc... no?
