i7 860 vvt question.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've had my 860 at 4ghz with 1.36v for awhile now. I was just wondering, If I up my vvt by lets say, .5v would that allow me to lower my vcore to make it, lets say something like 1.33v?

No, you wont get that kind of gain. The reduction of vcore that I have achieved due to vvt is very minimal, although it does help stable it out. It got me down my last notch in vcore(i was failing ~1 hour in prime95). What do you have it set at now?

Running the vtt of an i7 860 at .5v is rather insane considering Intel specs its absolute max at .21v. Intel specs absolute max i7 860 Vcore at 1.5v; seems you still got lots of headroom left there so you shouldn't need to boost vtt so high.

I believe it won't help much.
Although they have effects on each other, the result is minimal.
I personally consider them seperately when oc'd for the ease of mind.
