Default Re: Q6600 almost got 3.2ghz but need help with voltage

Well, everything was running fine... but then games started freezing so I ran prime95 again and got errors within the hour.

So I upped the voltage in the bios to 1.3850... which gives me 1.34 idle, 1.31 under load. I suspect under load it was dropping even lower than 1.31v. BUT... it concerns me that as I up the voltage more and more in the bios it still seems like I'm only getting 1.31v under load.

Anyways it seems stable again at 1.3850 in the bios... although I'm only a couple of notches off 1.4 anyway so might just do it to be sure.
