    Yea 4.5 ghz is quite easy on these chips. The only issue is if you want to keep speedset working you have to do alittle more tweaking. The number one thing that I found out is not to use the voltage numbers but use OFFSET voltages to keep speed step down volting at idle

    My main
    4.5ghz 1.32V (offset 0.070)

    My cruncher
    4.5ghz 1.33V (standard voltage)

    Correct, forgot all about that since it's been so long I haven't messed with it. Yes, use the offset for voltage.

    I guess I am not understanding what you guys are talking about as far as "offset" on the voltages? :laugh:

    the cpu voltage, if you go in the BIOS, you should have an option to set it manual or to offset.

    offset is basically if default vcore is 1.3v, and you have your offset set at +0.100v, the vcore will then be 1.410, etc etc. For some reason, SB's are more stable using the offset mode.

    Okay, now I think I get what your all talking about.

    Will jump in the bios and see what I can find. :)

    Keep us posted. :)


    BTW, I edited this post, had some voltage #'s off when I did the example. Sorry :(
