I dont need more than 1.85 to run 225, watercooled NB.
My system is watercooled also Holst. I was stable at 1.9, but not while gaming. The screen would flash or turn black completely. I did extensive troubleshooting and determined that I needed more Vdd voltage. I'm not running it that high by choice. I'm being forced to run it that high for stability. If I lower it to even 2.0v, it will start with the video flashing problem.

I don't just make my assumption that my PC is stable by running a few benchmarks. I use this PC for everything, from: WebDesign, using 3D apps, playing games, video editing, Internet surfing, etc... So I make sure that this thing is 100% stable by doing all of this for weeks and months!!

I have had it like this for about a month now and everything seems fine. NB and SB are cooled and temps are very low. Mosfets and VR's are also cool to the touch. So heat would not be the reason I need such high Vdd.

Find me a fix for the Video flashing above 225FSB and I'd be more than glad to lower the voltage. I didn't raise it for no reason at all...
