I7 920 voltage questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an ASUS P6T WS Pro MB, I7 920 running at 4GHz, 6G DDR3 (GSkill) and a fairly effective cooling tower and fan set up. It runs around 42-46 degrees at idle depending on the ambient temp. Building a peltier cooler to drop that down as it's hotter than I like. The system is stable but gets a tad toasty during Prime 95. My problem is that boot up time has actually slowed down after the overclocking but everything else runs great. One of the things I want to increase is the DRAM voltage, but when I try to up it I get the "Voltages over 1.6 may cause permanent damage to the CPU" warning. How true is this? I mean, should I really worry. I don't do any gaming, just a lot of AV conversions and burning. I'm looking into tweeking other voltages, but not really sure which might be the culprit for the slow boot up. Any ideas?

No, 1.66 volts will not damage your ram. Intels "safe zone" is 1.65 but 1.66 won't do any harm.
