What's a typical vcore for these speeds?

Looks good, stock volt on mine was 1.18 and for 4 ghz for the last 4 months is 1.24 so you should be able to keep yours at that 24/7 and never hurt it with those temps or volts. Very nice.

Looks good to me!

What Mobo you got?

What Mobo you got?

Gigabyte P35 DS3R
Got it for free actually. I built a pc for a guy I used to work with and his house got nailed by lightning, and his mobo fried. I told him to just go out and buy a new one and I would install it for free and I kept the damaged one and had it RMA'd.

Well it was totally useless to him, the RMA took several months anyways, and he wanted his pc back up asap.

Did he give it to you? Or did you take it?

Mwahahahahhaahwahahaha

then it's all fine N good, you are hereby pardoned :kaola:

How did you get Gigabyte to RMA it when it was caused by lightning? You lied? How can you RMA something you didn't buy?
June 19, 2008 8:51:39 PM

thats not the bad at all.but i seen higher. let me get him for you.
June 19, 2008 9:26:42 PM

here you go.i found him.
June 19, 2008 9:31:01 PM

EDIT: I thought "him" was a typo, see?

now you get what i said nigiri. i had some the other day you know. i just love salman nigiri!yum.....

the P45 is far more capable than anything out there.and it will max ANY CPU processor in normal condition if you are pushing it to the limit. what i mean by normal is aircooled and watercooled and no fancy cascade or LN2 cooling.

any processor will choke out smoke before the p45 will.
June 19, 2008 11:46:55 PM

Unless you have phase change cooling i wouldnt take it higher, Make sure thermal throttling is enabled in your bios otherwise your cpu will blow its lunch.
If you really want to brag why dont you post a super pi time here, overclocking without stability is like a fat bloke ice skating, good to see but u know its gonna fall over.

sorry mogwilson that rig is not mine.its simply a friend i know and ask him to post here to give him a guide. or maybe you got jealous....hum...looks like it.

if you are kind enough to ask in this forum, even you disable TM2 in BIOS your CPU simply WOULDNT BLOW TO PIECES!

hey bro you should be able to take that higher this is what i got on mine before temps started getting to high

i know my vcore is real high i was just testing how high i can take it

My ram is ddr2 800, and I'm running 8 gigs. I can only get it to 520 FSB probably

relax the timing to 5-5-5-20 and put 2.1v on them so they should run to atleast 1000mhz.

I just said I could get it to 1040 ._0
June 20, 2008 8:16:37 AM

Maybe im jealous(puts my e6750/e4500 to shame), Maybe i dont want to see someones expensive hardware break in the name of curiosity, The cpu wont blow to pieces, i just used that expression but it will be deader than a dead thing if thermal throttling is disabled at a high vcore.

I go on these forums to help iluvgillgill, so relax and dont get the hump.

cheers

lol mogwilson come on now. dont get offended we are all here to help and share our experiences. i know a guy have accidently run his CPU at 1.8V and 9xC and still fine. also there is a cut off limit on the motherboard that will shut the whole system down. not the TM2 limit there is another one up there that is hidden and no one can get access to it.

thats all i been telling you.nice day:)
