    Roughly..

    No more then 1.4vcore Try to stay below it, however some oc's will require you to go tad above it.

    Then:

    No more then 1.375 VTT (absolutely MUST! do not venture off in the 1.4v unless u dont intend to keep that chip longer then 6-8months... possibly even shorte).

    While holding the 2 above:
    Keep your QPI link LOW... like 4.8mts low... gulftowns do not like a high qpi link.


    My 24/7 settings are:

    1.3875vcore
    1.325 Vtt
    1.325 QPI
    1.65 Dram

    This is holding 4.3ghz /w HT On.

    This is on hexcore, the quadcores are easier to handle i heard.
     
    johnnyfiive and MetalRacer say thanks.

    Doesn't the ram power also supply a little juice to the cpu also?

    .5 rule... but this is universal on all i7's.

    My i7 975 which i <3
    Can do 1.5vcore easily, and probably stay for a while.
    Even 1.4VTT isnt much on a D0.

    Its the 32nm gulftowns which are fragile.
    Now the ones i got to play with most is the A0's.
    I have a B1, my 980X, however i never got to see what the upper limits on a B1 is. (nor could u ask me to try on this puppy)

    As i said, it hurt a lot when i pop'd the first one.
    I am not poping a second gulftown.

    Yep I have heard that it is not in their roadmap. And yet I see it ending up there anyway.
