hey all, im messin with my bios again. got it stable in Prime95 for 11 hours at 3.86Ghz. but i'd like to try a little higher. but i cannot alter Vcore in my bios. i DO however have the CPU VID (voltage Identifier) which is defaulted to 62, which is the highest setting. 1-62. im getting 1.34-1.41 in speedfan and cpuz. but i dont want to mess with it too much, without understanding it better. most i've been able to glean from the interweb, is that its some sort of ofset to allow overvoltage past the motherboards max. i dont know if thats the case, but its all i've found.<br><br>
anyone shine some light on this?<br><br><br>
ps its an asus p4s800dx (i know sis sucks)

I really would not advise messing with Voltages in Windows as Windows can read voltages wrong and you may go and increase it and damage your hardware. Overclocking in Windows or an OS environment is generally unstable at best. Also never push the V-core beyond motherboard limits as you can kill your motherboard.

thing is, i dont really want to spend any more money on this system, as we all know... its out of date. and the next dime i spend will be on quad core in the new year.<br>
its not in windows, its in the crappy bios i have. everything tells me im at 1.31 vcore. (speedfan, asus util and cpuz) which is well below the max for this cpu
