Phenom II x4 - Voltage Stuck

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello all, first time here.

For some reason my I cant get my Phenom II x4 945 to go above 1.3 voltage.
If I go into the BIOS and raise it at all, my comp refuses to launch windows. 1.3 is also the max in AOD. My temps are fine, CPU idles around 24 and never goes above 35 while gaming.

I know that its possible to get higher voltage than this, but why isn't the option available? It may be that I'm just new to overclocking and skipped an easy test.


Specs in sig. My PSU is an OCZ 650w. Thanks for any help!

I know for a fact that this CPU can be pushed beyond 1.3, a quick google search will prove me right.

Even though this isn't the Black edition, it should still be able to reach the upper 1.4 area.

disable cool and quit?, can your ram handle the extra voltage?
