Hi!

I couldn't find a thread for small questions so I decided to create a new one.

My question is, does more voltage always add more stability as long as the voltage is in reasonable range and temperatures are in check?

What I mean is, would it make sense to crank up all the voltages to their highest values I'm comfortable with, and then find the highest stable clocks. And after that to find the lowest voltages those clocks are stable on. I'd figure this approach would speed up the oc process quite a bit.

No, more V does not always = more stable. There is a point of diminishing returns where you would need a major V increase for a minor Mhz increase. That is why we start with stock V and work our way up. You will also better learn the relationships between the various OC settings in BIOS. No shortcuts to a good stable OC.

a quick and dirty method gets quick and dirty results, which is fine for short term . . but not all chips behave the same; most have different sweet spots where you get the most out of the applied voltage.

having a predetermined set voltage ignores that.
