How much vcore is to much vcore

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i got water cooling for the massive overclocking. now that i have it i see i have AOT of over head room i have it at 4.2GHz 200x21 1.35vcore and some PLL for stability (still testing for stability). my temps are still low so how much should i push this chip be4 im looking at its life being cut to much 4.4 maybe even higher?

i believe 1.5v is the average max. it really depends on the chip but for an i7 920 I probably wouldn't push pass that.

here's a thread on it.


different settings will yield better results so I honestly can't give you a precise number for your chip. hope this helps though.

some (most)motherboards will change the color of the voltage when you get to there unsafe margin as per the motherboard manufacturer

try changing it to anything 1.5 or higher (DO NOT SAVE IT and restart)
see if the color of the text for the voltage changes if it does its telling you its not a good idea
I would try to stay about .5 below the number where it changes

REMEMBER to lower it before saving and rebooting

Stay under 1.5v and you should be fine. Ideally you want to stay around the 1.4v-1.45v range for extreme overclocks with water

With Nehalem I would stay under 1.4v. Water or Air.

Too much Vcore is when your smell somethign weird coming out of your case.
