Default Re: Intel Core 2 X6800 Won't OC passed 3.21Ghz

Okay, I'm fully running stable now... I set the vcore voltage at 1.45v and the cpu is OC to 3.47GHz - SOLID AS A ROCK! Do you guys still think I might have done some damage to the cpu still prior to setting the VCore voltage to 1.9v? I'm thinking If I did I wouldn't be talking to you right now like this.
I know the board is perfect and wasn't at all effected in anyway and if anything it would be the CPU which I don't see a problem with as we speak. I'm new to the entire vcore voltage settings but now I know the entire layout. It took awhile to explore all the features that the Asus Stiker Extreme has to offer in the bios but it is wel worth it.

That warranty is as useless as a chocolate mantlepiece now, as soon as you change the voltage and they find out. Especially at 1.90V, they will surely find out.

My friend toasted his Intel cpu and Intel replaced it free! We never told then that the CPU was VCored at the highest Voltage possible...LMAO!
It's stable and no damage. Hell, if my cpu we're damaged I would be getting blue screens, or a crash right after I set the VCore Voltage that high. It's all good guys! I'm lucky as hell today!
I set the vcore at 1.45v he cpu is clocked at 3.47GHz I don't want it to get any hotter. Hell for the record it was only set at 1.90V for a couple of mins. It was never long term just to note.

If it were Liquid Nitrogen cooled, a 1.90V would be possible :P. They may or may not find out, and damage may not currently be apparant, but don't strike it out just yet, go easy on it for a short while.

This is true, but I think my motherboard might have safe guarded any major problems or damage to the CPU. It did run at 81c but it's still alive and kicking strong. I'm going to clock it down for a couple of days to just be on the safe side of things. If anything, would you know what signs to look for if the CPU is at all damaged? I've not taken the waterblock off to look. But what would I be looking for if any?

52C is damn hot for a motherboard... my CPU under full load is not even that hot....

Well, the Asus Striker Extreme really is a grand motherboard to own.
I beat the hell out of the VCore Voltage and it's still going strong!
I'm just glad nothing is damaged. I've note had any system lock ups or reboots or anything! I'm in the clear now.

Symptoms would be instabilities, program crashes, BSODs, random program closing, bad memory management (data being lost), PC not booting, etc.

I doubt the motherboard "saved" you, if it booted at that voltage then it never did anything to prevent any damage. My A8N32-SLi Deluxe doesn't boot or reports overclocking failed if it detects any potential damage or instabilities.

Although all of what I said may be worrying, I wouldn't worry too much, you didn't run it long enough to cause any MAJOR immediate risks to the CPU.

Exactly, At first the computer didn't want to boot up when I adjusted the Vcore Voltage to 1.90V but it did and it ran very unstable. After about 3 boot ups it finally ran with the VCore set at 1.90V I wasn't running it for not even five mins before seeing those temps jump up to 81c I got concerned and rebooted and

lowered the clock speed and vcore voltage. So it was a close call. Now I'm setting at 3.47GHz withthe vcore voltage at 1.40V as suggested. I might bump the vcore up a notch to 1.45V

Thats why I love my motherboard.... it will not post if I set something thats unstable. And a simple flick of the power supply switch off then back on then hitting the power button cycles my motherboard and it will boot up saying "Overclock Failed" and allow me to go back in and change some settings. This was great when I was messing with my memory timings and on other motherboards would have had to use a jumper to reset the cmos every damn time. This will acctually preserve your settings while setting them stable in the backround so you can change them
