I have a i7 930 @ 4ghz on a ASUS P6X58D-E mothboard (bios 0303) running 1.35 vcore. This was part of a pre overclocked bundle bought from OCUK a while back. My question really regards trying to see if I can reduce the current vcore as low as possible. There have been several bios updates since the one I am using but am wondering if a newer bios would enable me to lower the vcore with the same overclock as at present it will not go any lower with current bios without losing stability.
The system is stable and I know the old adage of "if it aint broke dont fix it" but was really wondering if a bios update would allow me to reduce voltages at all.
Any help, advice or previous experience would be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance

no, the voltage relies more on the chip than the bios revision

Cheers bud. Was thinking as much but was hoping that the improved system stabilty of newer bios would possibly help reduce the vcore. Not a biggy tbh but cheers for response
Your current firmware should allow you to reduce the voltage without issue. However I wouldn't recommend doing that
