Mobo-Voltage Settings for X5470
Mobo is MSI P43neo, CPU is X5470, RAM are 2 sets of KHX6400D2/4G, so 8GB altogether.
I upgraded my pc some six months ago and went from Q8300 to X5470. Applying the sticker, adjusting the microcode and flashing the Bios was a piece of cake and from the beginning I ran the CPU at 4GHz with the board running at a max FSB setting of 400MHz. Of course I upgraded the heat exchanger as well and put in a tower cooler, so I do not have any problems with the temperature of the cores. After running the CPU stress test that comes with GPU-Z, after running the Intel Burn Test and after running the system for half a year without any problem, I was quite sure that indeed I do not have a problem.
After trying to run Prime95 a few days ago, however, it immediately crashed (Prime, not Windows) with indicating a hardware failure. The first thing I did was to set the FSB to 333MHz. As a result, Prime95 runs properly now but as I do want to let the system run at full speed: could you please help me with the voltages settings I would have to set in Bios?
CPU voltage I would set to 1.25 and DRAM Voltage I would set to 1.4 (please correct me if I am wrong), as indicated in another thread that I have found earlier, however, do I have to worry about the other settings listed in Bios (CPU GTL REF0 und REF1, MCH Voltage, VTT FSB Voltage and ICH Voltage)?
At the moment, all values are set to AUTO.
