Starting at 1.52v as safe voltage to under 1.4v big drop that ?

I would say that this is aload of ****. If intel say nothing about it maybe it is aload of ****?

To all the "voltage doesn't kill" people. Go take a cap rated at 200v and run 300v through it... oops, it blew up. Go take a resistor rated for 15v and run 25v through it... oops, it blew up. Take a printed circut board capable of handling 10v and run 20v through it... oops, blew that up too.

Electrical components can only take a finite amount of voltage before things explode. The same is true of CPU's. You're dealing with tons of microscopic parts packed extremely close togther. Giving them too much voltage will have things arching out and blowing up with the quickness. Volts DO kill, the same way they can kill any other electrical component.

When we're talking .1 or .05 volts or even .12 volts I don't think you can take the leap and say "yep that did it".


I will stand by my position that max voltage is subjective to the level of cooling you're using.

1 volt will cause more damage at 100C than 1.35 volts will cause at -20C.

And you base that on what?

There's a 0.17v difference between 1.52v and 1.35v, that's over 10% - it is not trivial.

Commonsense I guess.

The colder the chip, the less the voltage jumps, the higher you can volt it.

I've seen chips benched for years at 1.9v and they still run and OC just as well for the benchmarks and score just as well.

Do I need to look for RAM that is rated at around 1.5?
I was wondering this also, what are you to do? I can only find ram rated at 1.65v...

I would go with these...

why do you need better than those?


People are going over board and silly with this ram business its fine to use 1.65v at rated speed on p67 boards.

IMO I'm happy (and we all should be) at 4.5-4.8GHz on AIR. Many are bashing over this 1.35v safe peak and they don't take it for what it means! 4.5GHz at only 1.35v?! My Q6600 (G0 fyi) needs 1.38v for 3.4GHz.
