Max CPU voltage sinked 4+1 phase 125w? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I have this board too. I've run it up to 1.503, but I've got it sitting at 1.47, with mosfet cooling of course. Had it running hard for 5 months. Running great!

I believe people look into this vrm stuff just a little to much. I have the great 790fx-gd70 that people blow up all the time and yes I do think a 6 core maybe a little to much for it. Now for a x4 your fine on a 4-1 if its a nice boards I have been running 1.56 volts in the bios of my GD-70 for over a year I just took it apart and made for 100% sure all VRMs where touching the heatsink for cooling. I think if you wanted you could push 1.55 all day but most likely if you have a C3 chip you don't need it for 4GHz.

my board has a similar power phase and reasonable heatsink and i have a c3 945 that i have taken to 1.6v in the name of speed
anything over 1.55v was a waste of time for me due to ram limitations but i would say 1.5v max would be safe if you are using air to cool it.
