What is the max voltage I can push through my CPU for a very quick suicide run? I just need the CPU to be stable enough to boot into windows and run one test of super pi, so the computer will be on for a grand total of about 5 minutes. Temps shouldn't really be an issue because of the short time it will be running. I have already booted at 1.4 volts and I'm reluctant to go higher.

1.55 is the ABSOLUTE MAX MAX MAX on air honestly and thats just too high really. 1.65 for water id say. i run 24/7 @ 1.4v so 1.55 shouldn't kill it. Thats with a mugen 2 btw

(edit)

whats your goal with the super pi run? just trying to see max possible OC?

I'd love to get below 10, but I really just do not think that is possible on air. I guess 10.5 will have to do. Basically yeah I'm trying to get a max possible semi-stable overclock.

EDIT: Actually on second thought maybe it is possible. I got 11.2 at 4.2 Ghz, and that was only using 1.4 volts. I have noticed super pi runs don't even make me hit my max temps. Maybe only like 60% or so, but I just don't want to put like 1.6 volts through my CPU and kill it. I just don't have the money to buy a new one lol.
