Help with my i3 550!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This i3 550 has been causing me lots of troubles in finding a good overclock. The thing seems to want a alot of voltage in order to stay stable in prime 95. My current settings are the following

multi = 23
bclk = 183
cpu volts = 1.4
dram volts = 1.55
imc = 1.325

qpi link 2203mhz
pll and pch are both on auto
load line enabled
majority of useless cpu options disable
HT disabled

So anything below 1.4v is unstable at 4.2 and my goal with this cpu was to be atleast 4.2 or higher... So what does everyone think of this current overclock? Some advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I've managed to get the cpu volts down to 3.87 by lowering my imc to 1.23v, which is weird and ive raised my pll to 1.9v.
