Actually when Turbo core is active Thubans kick up to 1.475 volts anyways so 1.4v-1.45v is completely safe for a 1090T.Originally Posted by Thermaltake
Not recommended, at all. I would say 1.37 is my limit for everyday usage. I would lower the overclock a bit if you are at that high of voltage.
On second thought, what are your temps? I would cut it at 1.5v if you have good temps.
That's a major misconception about overclocking. You can have reasonably low temps and still do damage. Voltage is actually the biggest killer of computers - not heat. A lot of people run at 1.5v 24/7 but I wouldn't recommend it personally. A vcore that high is really only for people who upgrade every few years so they aren't worried about longevity.Originally Posted by Grumby21
well i've had mixed readings since some say yeah it's fine if you had good cooling and so far in bf3 maxed out at 1920x1080 my cpu does not exceed 32c on the core. i plan to add a single 120 in the loop so my idle temps and load temps will drop a bit. im sitting at 1.5v at 4305mhz
here is what i am at
Ok well disabling cores is totally a personal preference. Just saying I wouldn't ever run anything over 1.5v for 4.3GHz on 6 cores. Disabling 2 cores would definitely give you a lower voltage AND OR a higher overclock on 4 cores. It all depends, if you even use those extra cores since pretty much all games aren't optimized for 6 threads.Originally Posted by Grumby21
not be rude i would never disable a core. i want to hit 4.4ghz i did it before but after 1 hour of gaming when i got to the speed bf3 started to crash i want to push the cpu as far as possible i would update the bios but the latest for my cpu is a beta so i would not have control over cool and quiet and c1e and other stuff i disable so i used the one right below it. but i think for my games the single 6950 unlocked with 960-1525 is is bottlenecking my cpu.
