So I'm testing what FSB I can max boot on.

I'm currently at 1950 (487) with 1.393v (if I recall correctly).
I have two more options to choose from-- something like 1.5v and 1.9v.

So is it safe to set the max voltage on the NB? The NB is currently 30c with watercooling.

So should I up the voltage just to see how high I can post or can I keep it at the highest voltage?

ouch, 1.9v for nb? sounds a little painfull if you ask me :/ i would say keep it under 1.7v since you have it under water and itt'l stay nice and cool :]

max voltage should be fine for a suicide run /test to see how high ittle post

My bad!



I'm currently running 1.563v

I made the same mistake in the OP, I'm on 1.5v and I want to know if 1.7v is safe for 24/7 use?

I'm on water and non of my temps (CPU, GPU or NB) break 40c.

So 1.7 is for SR and testing only?

yea I'm gonna have to agree 1.7 is a lot. If your temps are okay and everything is running right then you should be fine, I presume. Although, 1.5 is max recommended....but that's probably on air. I would think it wouldn't last a long though? anyone agree?

lol off topic: whats that ocn as5 thing in your sig mean?

Yeah 1.563v should be fine for a NB under water but I wouldn't put it any higher. Especially at 30C I don't think you are gonna run into any problems. My NB was over 40C stock, but then again I have a 680i NB...
