Hi people. I was able to overclock my venice core from 2.0ghz to 2.5ghz on the amd stock fan. I raised the vcore from 1.4 to 1.45. I was wondering if raising the vcore by that much would damage my cpu? Because i heard that when you raise the vcore, the electron migration or something increases and would shorten the life span of the cpu.

I'm Pretty Confident that this raise won't effect your CPU since its a 1.4V i think it'll be safe as long as you dont go beyond 1.5V or was it 1.7V??? But but Not beyond 1.5V for certain

As long as the CPU is cooled adequately you should be fine.

No, 1.45V can't damage your CPU, but I wonder if it will run stable at 2.5GHz on that voltage. See my rig in sig, I've overclocked it and booted WindowsXP at 3GHz on 1.65v, but was not stable.
At 2.8GHz at 1.55V it works stable, but I don't like the noise produced by the CPU fan, so I am running it at 2.7GHz at 1.5v.
Anyway, if you run your CPU at stock speed with proper power supply and properly cooled, it will live 10-15 years. If you overclock it with apropriate cooling, it will live 5-10 years. Until than mostly like you will change your system at least twice, so nothing to loose with OCing.

See my sig...
Perfectly stable with stock cooling! 8)
It booted 2.7 GHz @ 1.55v, but unstable... Anyway, I think a 600 MHz increase is good enough, so I left it like that :wink:
