i7 920 1.43125 QPI Voltage, too high?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but to get my 920 stable at 4.2ghz it took 1.43125 QPI voltage. Is that too high?

Intel lists the voltage range for the 920 as 'VID Voltage Range: 0.800V-1.375V'.

The maximum SAFE voltage may be a bit higher, but I'd keep within that range if I were you.

Thanks, but the VID voltage range is for CPU Vcore, I'm talking about QPI which is different. I know on all the X58 boards I've used in the last few days that QPI voltage was red as in bad, but I'm no expert so I'm asking the experts!

All on stock cooling? I am calling BS.



BTW OP the max safe on air is 1.375. On water you can reach out to 1.45v 24/7 safely.


I am running my chip right now at 1.43v 4.6Ghz.


NVM: Disregard that thought you meant v core from that comment. Yes that should be just fine.

yeah, that guy came to my town and got arrested after a show for possession. All the college kids raged because they locked him up.

Made a mill, driving a dodge charger. Ballin!

sorry to open a somewhat dead/inactive thread... but i have the EVGA SLI Classified mobo with the i7 920 (C0 Revision) @ 3.247GHz on air atm... but i only overclocked it using mainly the auto settings and was just wondering about the voltages Eleet is reporting... VCore was at 1.41250v but im dropping that down slowly in increments as i dont wanna screw any internals, its currently at 1.4v dead even was just wondering what should everything be at? ram is currently at 1.5v but with DRAM freq. at 618.4mhz (am i wrong to assume that, that is really low for 1600Mhz ddr3 ram?) with timings of 9-9-9-24 i believe...

also off the side... anybody know of air coolers for the NB for this board? as my NB can hit up to 70 celsius on a hot day... ill be getting a water cooling system soon (Zalman Reserator XT with all blocks) but its out of my price range currently being unemployed lol.

any help appreciated.
