q9550 vcore question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Heard that the max safe vcore for q9550 is 1.3625v... but what if I set my vcore to 1.4v in bios and have LLC enabled.. that turns out I'll be getting only 1.36v in cpuz in windows..

so my question is that since it's only on 1.36v in windows..is it safe to have my vcore set to 1.4v in bios LLC enabled??

I'm currently on 1.35***v and trying to shoot for higher oc.. Any help will be appreciated.. Thanks

There are many people like q9500 guru papa smurf
who go over 4,0 with lower volts

I have to admit there are also many people who use higher volts.
But unless you become unstable why use higher volts. And dont forget the vdrop, what you apply in bios isnt allways the voltage when running the OS.
