In the quest for more...

Yet again, i am on the quest for more from my CPU. I did get 2.8Ghz earlier, booting into windows, but without realising (thank god i started EPTP to check how things were) the voltage was at an extreme 1.77V, because i'd accidently set the voltage at +0.3 thinking that it was +0.03 (which would take it to approx 1.63V). So i want to know what i should set as my vcore max (not actually set it, just so i know how high i can go without damaging the cpu). I've currently got 2660Mhz (280/9.5) at approx 1.6v. So if anyone knows what vcore max i should have for this cpu (athlon64 3200+) without causing any damage, then i'd be greatful. I'm aiming for the big 3.0 if possible but 2.8 is my main target.

i7 2600K (4.3Ghz 1.34v) | GTX580 | 16GB (4x4GB) Patriot Viper Sec. 5 Ser. 2 (1866 - 9-11-9-27) | P67A-UD4-B3
Corsair AX1200 | Vertex II 240GB SSD | 4TB RAID0 (Samsung HD204UI) | Logitech G930 Wireless Headset

Stay under 1.6v to be safe and never go over 1.65v...that would be my advice.

also you will need to use a memory divider chances of your memory going much higher are slim.

Good luck
