Too much voltage ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I moved it from the auto setting (1.5 i think) to +.125. and now the voltage monitor says 1.64. Is this voltage too high? Im idle at 35 now, up from 32.

Never use more voltage than necessary. Did you move it because of stability? With that said, 1.64 is about as high as I'd go on air for long term use. Btw, idle temps mean nothing....you need to look at your load temps. As long as your load temps are fine, 1.64 is alright as long as you understand that you're shortening the lifespan slightly of your cpu. The good news is that the lifespan will still be a lot longer than you'll ever own it

Check out EpoX's website or forums, I'm sure they have a chart that converts the different % to vcore. So it's easy to know what voltage you are setting with each percentage..

Don't the Opty's actually take quite a bit of vcore? I think it's about 1.7 that they're safe to. Don't quote me I'm trying to recall from memory.

As sccr has said you shouldn't move your voltages up unless you really have to. Vcore is only to be added if you are experiencing instability, you'll usually see it in Prime95 as a rounding error. This is usually a sign that you may need more vcore applied, but other than that you shouldn't have to turn it up unless it's absolutely necessary.
