CPU Voltage for the MSI 890GXM-G65

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've never blown up a motherboard ever, and I kind of want to keep that reputation, but I'm also not wanting to be limited to stock values.

I've managed to overclock to 3.7GHz on a 1090T, and it maxes out around 1.36V. Haven't seen it go any higher than that. What do you think the max amount of voltage I should have on it so I don't blow a VRM? I've also managed to go to 3795MHz but I don't want to pull to much current.

I usually hear about people running 1.38V - 1.42V through this 4 + 1 Phase design and that's when they horror stories start. Anyone else having a good OC with this board?

a-la-risque? Okay, but don't say we didn't warn you about any OC-ing or overvolting on that motherboard - which, by the way, can blow at stock speeds/voltages as well. I say do not ever pass 1.375V.
