So I recently managed to get my E6400 orthos stable at 3.5ghz with a bios-set VCORE of 1.41v's. A pretty good temp/clock/Vcore compromise if you ask me. The actual volts, as reported by CPUz are something like 1.36v's or so ...

...



...

Anyway ... earlier today, since I was leaving the house with a fairly critical system backup in process and since I didn't want to take the chance of things crapping out in the middle of it ... I used Clockgen to downgrade my overclock to stock settings ... BUT with the same volts ...

After work, when I got home, I checked my temp logs and what I found was that the temps were about the same ...

Is that wierd or what?

3.5ghz w/ 1.41v's = 37C idle temp
2.13ghz w/ 1.41v's = 36C idle temp

...

So, does VCORE *really* affect temps that much?

I thought my temps would be *drastically* lower once I Clockgen'd down to stock speeds ...

Partially true. Clock your gpu higher without touching the voltage and watch the temp increase.
