Default Re: Finally, 3GHz!!! lol

Yup, the s939 opty's were great. My opty 175 was greaaaat. I loved it. Alas it was a bit slow for my liking....quad core FTW!!

As far as voltage is concerned....I would run it as low as you can while being stable. So once you determine if you're stable at the current voltage, start dropping it one increment at a time and test stability again. It's hard to say how low you'd be able to get it...definately not 1.00V like you said in your post....maybe 1.40? What is stock voltage on that chip? 1.35V? In the end it all depends on the chip. Oh and I'd use ORTHOS to test for stability. If it runs for 30 min then you're good to lower the voltage. Once it fails, bump it back up a notch and test for a couple hours.
