Question about proper voltage- Pentium 4

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there. I have a P4 3.06 Prescott CPU. I have it running stable at near 3.7by raising only FSB from 133 to about 159. Is there an advantage to raising voltages at this point? CPU is on 'default' and running at about 1.38V and the CPU core at 1.20V (the lowest setting) Will there be an advantage to playing with the voltage or is it better "If it ain't broke don't fix it?" It runs very cool and I don't have any problems with heat. Thanks smile.gif
