My specs are bellow and im running at 3.5ghz per core..
These are my Voltages:
DDR3 Voltage: 1.6
NB Voltage: 1.1 (Sits on 1.1500v in everest) is this ok?
SB Voltage: 1.2
CPU NB VID: 1.5
CPU VCORE: 1.4250
HT: 2000mhz (stock)
CPU NB: 2000mhz (stock)
Clock: 250*14 3500mhz per core
I have had a read of the guides and it seems all good but could someone just reasure that everything is good
Your CPU NB VID and CPU VCore look a bit high, depending if you have turbo core enabled or not. The NB VID is mostly needed in my experience if you OC the HT links - I can do 3.9 GHz (with turbo off) at stock NB VID, so +0.025 or +0.05 should be sufficent unless you OC the HT links by large margin.
Now CPU VCORE at 1.425 should be quite safe as long as you have turbo core off. If you have turbo core on then when it OC's your three cores it adds +0.1 V overvolt to those cores and you would end up with 1.525 V on those cores. This should not cause (propably) permanent damage but should not be needed for 3.5 GHz.
When playing around I found 3.5 GHz to be rather sweet spot for mild OC at low volts with turbo left on. It was stable at stock volts on CPU (1.375 base and 1.475 with turbo) and mild bump on NB VID (I OC'd it up to 2500 tho). That way I had 3.5 GHz base on all cores and turbo was able to push up to three cores up to 4.125 GHz when needed.
