If you undervolt it too much it might crash but no damage can be done and you just need to raise it slightly. gardoversoza November 30, 2012 8:23:46 AM darth pravus said:Undervolting will reduce power and heat produced by your CPU making it cooler and quieter.

What is the voltage limit for example my i3 2120, like how low can I get it? Can I undervolt it?
