Default Re: Q9450 CPU Temps and Voltage


he's probably using some pencil modd to get such low voltage..

mine idles from 38-43C (overall temp 28-30C) @ 3.52ghz with 1.31850v in bios or in win 1.289v.

For 3.6ghz i need 1.3560v in bios making it 1.33v in windows, without load line calibration.

Temps stayed around the same, maybe 1C higher..

For 3.7ghz (463mhz fsb) i need huge amounts, 1.389v in bios making it 1.349v in win.

edit: what's your cpu VID? this one is crucial for overall temps..

mine is 1.25v.
