Voltage is MAX 1.300V only.

How can i get more voltage since i'm trying to overclock on 2.8 ghz but i need 1.45V so i could boot without problems? The maximum voltage i can get is 1.300V, that's not enough.

More about voltage max 300v
  1. Please provide more details, like exact model of cpu and psu.

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane CPU
    ATI Radeon HD 4850 Graphics Card
    4 GB of DDR2 RAM
    MSI Motherboard with Nvidia nForce 520 both Southbridge and Chipset
    I don't really know about my PSU.
  3. Please try to investigate the psu. If increasing the voltage isn't working properly, the psu is the prime suspect.

    If i remember it was 350W.
  5. According to this list:
    http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/power-requirements-for-graphics-cards
    A Radeon 4850 needs at least a 450W psu with 30A on the +12V rail
    Using some guesses about other details you haven't provided yet (like hard drive, optical drive, and system fans), and including your desired overclock, and The eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Pro indicates a recommended psu wattage of 321 W with 22A on the +12V rail, but if your psu is as old as that cpu, it probably doesn't provide that much.
    Also, you still haven't provided the brand or model of your psu - if you don't remember, please open up your computer and look at it.
  6. Some may also limit the voltage for warranty purposes.
  7. Finally figured out what is my wattage, its 300W, with a +12V appearantly :(
    Is there any way to increase it atleast to 1.35v?
  8. Do you mean the slider doesn't go to 1.35v or the card crashes any higher?

    Slider? I'm using BIOS, and i can't put it higher than 1.30v for the CPU.
  10. Bump.
