  1. Well First off your exceeding the maximum voltage the processor can take,
    Which will dramatically shorten its life and creates alot of heat.
    why the heck do u have the voltage so high?????? are u new to overclocking?
  2. yes i am haha and when i had the voltage lower my games would crash or freeze and computer would go BOOM lol well not boom but it would restart. like i said please recommend specs for me
  3. noone here can help me?
  4. with 1,55 volts running through cpu that prob about right lol
    maybe check if the cooler is on right and try lowering voltage if possible
  5. right now i have volt on 1.45 and im idling at like 40c for somereason everyone who has this cooler is getting in low 30's wat am i doing wrong. its only overclocked to 3.4
  6. whats the other air flow like in ur case EG:back fans or any side or front fans?
    how hot is it in the room?
    did u apply thermal paste properly?
  7. i have the thermaltake armor mx case it has an intake in front exhaust in back it use to have a fan on door but V8 wouldnt allow it to close. so i dismounted it and put it on the outside very slopy but works and that pushes air into the case. and i put a circle like a dime of artic sliver 5 or w.e its called and i just put cooler ontop i was told u dont need to spread it.
  8. Wow... High voltage.... I have my AMD Phenom II X4 940 at 3.7GHz on a 1.42V (multi x 18)... temps 40c idle and 58+ load...

    Lower your voltage to 1.432, set multi x 18 and use OCCT program to see if its stable...
