I have a P4 2.4C which is specified to run at 1.525V and set to do so at the BIOS. However, in windows Winbond Hardware Doctor shows that it's at 1.49 and when I run Prime95 it drops to 1.44 (when I stop running prime it goes back up to 1.49). System is completely stable at 250 FSB despite low V but I can't get it to boot at 260 FSB even when V is set at the BIOS to 1.675. Should I set the BIOS to pump the CPU with more voltage to get it to be at 1.52 in windows under load?
P.S: There should be an OC FAQ with short Q&A, many posts like this are just questions that might repeat themselves.
Is 2^33634943-1 prime? (more than 10Mil digits @55.5%) I will know in 2 weeks when <A HREF="http://www.mersenne.org" target="_new">Prime95</A> finishes checking!
