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?
