How much voltage is too much for my barton can I put 2.2+ volts without damaging it. Of course keeping the temps nice and low.

As I said in your other thread:

However much your heatsink can handle before your CPU fries.

I know my M7NCD Pro has from 1.3v to 2.0v. I would say anything over 1.85 is asking for a LOT of trouble though.

thanks
figured a seperate post would be more useful for others

They say no more then 0.3 volts over defualt unless you have extreme cooling like vapor and L2 etc.

I'm already at .4 over.

Well i would never go over 2v personally....but its really cooling dependant..with great air cooling i wouldnt do over 1.8 but with decent watercooling 1.8-2.1 shouldnt be a problem....but once you go over that 2.1v mark you risk frying you cpu....but right now i have my mobile barton at 1.9v and 2700mhz with watercooling....idle temps are 36c...load is 43c..but that is with on the on-die sensor and mbm..so coudl be a few degrees off

My mobile barton actually slows down after 1.825V, Refrigerated. Go figure.
My old barton 2.8 would top out at 1.95.
On air cooling I've foung that, at around 57deg c
I get unstable. It depend's on cooling as to how high the temp's, how fast, and how long you want the chip to live. Higher volt's isn't all way's where your max speed will be. For air cooling, I'd say around 1.85-1.9. I suggest water cooling for the most economical solution, although if you in this for the long haul, Phase change (Refrigeration) will pay for it's self, is very quiet (35db) and keeps case temp's down for other component's. :)
