Should I increase the vcore past 1.45v, or is stable at 3.6 about what I am going to get?

You should really keep your questions in one thread.

Those are some remarkably good results.
Quite frankly, i'd keep going :p

See what it takes to get 3.7 GHz stable.

I'd say that if temps are good, then i'd likely do up to 1.5V, as long as the speed increase is significant enough.

He has a P5B Deluxe.

There's no FSB wall anywhere near what he's running right now.

However, it looks like his CPU max is nigh.

Ok. :eek:

How high can I push the voltage on my ram? I am trying to get 4-4-4-10 at 1003MHz.

Should I trust the BIOS vcore or cpu-z? I set it to 1.425v in the BIOS, but cpu-z shows 1.336v.

What's Asus PC Probe 2 say?

CPU-Z bugs out after you get into the high vcore area.

PC Probe says 1.34v. Both show over .75v lower than the BIOS. :confused:

That's some major vdroop.

I know you get some vdroop, but that doesn't seem possible.

I'd make the assumption it's somewhere in between.

1.425V isn't that high though, as i mentioned, you can keep going.

definition of stable?

If it took 1.425v to get 3.6ghz stable it is likely it is going to need 1.5v to get 3.7ghz...once it starts tailing off the vcore climbs fast for every little fsb....

:shocked: He meant .075v of vdroop.:D
