Solved Phenom II X3 720 BE Voltage? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Cooling Phenom Last response: February 15, 2014 12:01 AM in Overclocking Share Espionage724 February 19, 2012 7:13:40 PM My Phenom II X3 720 can run I think around 3.4Ghz at 1.4125V (which I think is the max recommended on AMD's product page). I recently got a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, so cooling is pretty decent. I was curious about trying to overclock near or at 4Ghz and this would require a voltage increase. With increase in voltages, does this kill the CPU faster, even with decent cooling? If so, should I just keep it at 1.4V and not worry about trying to overclock that much?

I wouldn't opt to increasing to voltage anymore, but it's just trail and error.

However, running out of specs definitely shortens CPU life. Reply to dmmbbs Ask the community Post an answer Related resources Will High Voltage Wreck a Phenom II x3 720 be?
