When I up my cpu voltage above 1.65 the computer shuts off, is this due to lack of power or am I hindered by my mobo? The conditions were 200x13 @1.675
Well 480watts is plent of power so it may be what you mentioned regarding the mb but sounds a little odd that it crashes when you raise the vcore. check your ram timings and make sure its running within specs you may need to losin them up some.
Okay i fiqured it out, i updated my bios things are looking up for this system, right now on air cooling i have it running 200x13 @2600 with vCore at 1.7 idle temp is 42C load im not quite to sure but i reckon not to high. I have both sides of my case of with a small box fan blowing hot air away from the system
ghetto totally, but water cooling wont be here for another 2 days so this is how it goes for now. Seems this is the way i get best temps.
Thats a bit warm for IDLE. Watch the LOAD temps and mid 50s is pushing it!!! You maight want to improve case ventilation to bring the idle temps down a bit and get AS5 (Artic Silver 5 thermal compound) if you dont have it
Ahh ty duke, couldnt find anywhere the operating temps for thsi mobile...I took it back down to 2.2 gig for now until water cooling gets here, i had it all teh way up to 2.7 though! idle temp was at 44c
