I am curious to know of the usual stock voltage of the said processor. My motherboard has voltage set as auto by default, hence the CPU voltage utilization fluctuates based on load (at least that's what CPU-Z and HWMonitor have been telling me). At max, it would go up to 1.384 running Prime95. Is this normal? I want to determine how much headroom do I have to overclock (currently at stock).
Motherboard is MSI 790GX-G65 and I have a 750W PSU.
I have the X4 955BE C3 Stepping with Voltage @ 1.25v stock and a Max voltage @ 1.45v. under load it gets about 1.3v and over clocked multiplier @ 18x (instead of 16x stock) doesn't change voltage (running @ 3.6Ghz). Can get it to just above 4Ghz by changing both multiplier and FSB but voltage goes to about 1.32v - 1.44v under load and can cause a little instability. (some games crap out sometimes but this is on stack cooler).
I am using Cooler Master V8. At stock temps are around low 30's with air-conditioning turned on. Without, the chip would idle at around 40C. When put on load, without air-conditioning, it would get as high as 54C. With air-conditioning, around 45C. I am aiming for around 3.7GHz at less than 1.45V (hopefully my chip can do it).
hey, i know this's a very old topic, my i'm overclocking my 955 @ 3.5 with 1.3125v
they system is stable and it runs good with Prime95 @ 55c-57c full load with cooler master hyper tx3....i want to know if this result is good and if the voltage is low in case of heavy game loading, would it affect the cpu?
