    Q9450 undervolted to 1.18 V in bios , 1.152V under load and overclocked to 3.2 Ghz .

    Are these common in 45nm processors ?

    here's a pic

    I'd figure it's pretty normal as even Kentsfield does 3.2GHz at stock volts and one would think Yorkfield wouldn't atleast be any worse. But why are you using Prime95 with 1 thread and Orthos with 2? Only 3 cores are loaded. One instance of Prime95 can run 4 threads.

    I'm lucky with my lil'ol E7200 also. I'm doing 3.0ghz on 1.1125 V in my bios. Drops to 1.04V under load on OCCT and Orthos :)

    Yeah, these 45nm don't require near the power that the 65nm chips do. I have seen several cases of this.

    I have a Q9450 that i overclocked to 3.4GHZ and it's running at 1.09v and it stable. It's wak but i love the temps, in the low 30's, plus if my work system so 3.4 if fine for me and i love the 12M cache.

    rock on..,

    undervolting doesn't hurt the processor, right ?
