AS you see I got a solid 3.5 at 1.5 Vcore (tested with prime95)...on many reviews I saw a much lower Stock Vcore ,but it seems mine is among those wth high stock Vcore (1.47). Have tried to reach 3.66 on 1.55 but got a reboot on prime95 after 15 mins. I am way too reluctant to go for 1.57 vcore since I'm afraid this is just alil too high and would damage the CPU!
What u people would suggest ? Should go for 1.57 or 160mhz isnt worth that big Vcore increase ?
Is there anyother method to reach 3.6 without huge vcore increase ?
Should I change NB voltage or Ram Voltage ?
THx in advance
