stable at 3.8Ghz couple questions though

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
sup. i have my 860 stable at 3.8

using 1.35vcore 1.4vtt and 1.8pll

my question is if i were to raise pll, would i be able to lower my vtt and still be just as stable? or are the settings i have about as good as i can get. i made sure to test w/ linx after every voltage change, and those are the lowest possible i can get w/o any errors, but i'm confused on this a bit.

thanks
i7-860

You could try this, but you should be able to increase your vcore for your processor and get a higher overclock if you have a decent cooling solution. Intel processors can usually handle up to about 1.45 vcore max and AMD up to about 1.55vcore max. These are averages and they vary, but this should give you an idea of your top limit. Make sure to throttle up in baby steps, but keep in mind that the more vcore you push, the better cooling you need to avoid damage to your processor.
