Just want to know what everyone's running for voltage and how high they've OCed to w/ the 3700SD.

I'm at 1.45V in Bios, and 1.47 on CPUZ and PC Probe, whatever the correct voltage is, she's stable at 2.625, I hope ... (running torture test now).

Best I've done so far till I get my Big Typhoon on
1.41vcore (in CPU-z)(1.425 in bios) @ 2.915ghz

if your talking about lowering temps yes, but if you want to overclock more then probably not.

anyways I think I am at 1.47V @ 2.9Ghz

EDIT: 1.46V to be exact

Mine is stable right now @ 2.76 with stock cooling and I have it Running on Auto Voltage which I believe stays right around 1.45.

I have no problems with these settings I idle at 40c and get to 57c under extreame load normally gaming its around 53 after 2 or 3 hours.

I will get a new heatsink and fan or try Watercooling so I can take it to 3Ghz soon but I am impressed with how far the stock has taken me.

I use the big typhoon, and have the IHS removed(Warning DANGEROUS).
I also have BH-5 Ram which enables me to use high memory voltage (3.6)

You have to be able to run high memory voltage to run your V-Core above 1.6 without increasing the chances of destroying you memory controllers on the chip. (And you may do so anyway, No gaurantees)

I run my V-Core at 1.7 24/7 - (I don't recommend this as it can kill your CPU)

As always don't let your Core temp go over 51c on load!!

hey something interesting I learned in physics sorry if its off topic but it might be able to relate a little bit about this thread,

"The higher the voltage is, the faster the current moves through the wire"

I think this would be the same for a processor.

Idle temps around 38c and load 48c

I'm at 2.706ghz @ 1.45v with the stock cooler...any higher than this and occt tells me there is cpu errors but the temps are still well within spec at 2.75+...any suggestions on getting hihger without raising voltage?

I have a KABGE stepping. On my old EPOX board it would run 2.6 @ 1.43 vcore. On this DFI board I run 2.64 @ 1.5 vcore.

I think mine just has a sweet spot at that voltage. I have to increase vcore 1.5v just to get stable at 3.0ghz

2.951 @ 1.52

watch the temp tho if you go over 1.5 on stock cooling, you really need to have excellent case circulation if you're going to pull that off.

Which stepping u got Tobuk , thats one good chip for such low volts @ 3ghz+ , NICE.
