+.1v = 10mhz ??

I'm running 2 AXPx and a morgan. I just tried something, and the results are surprising. I've been running everything @ 1.85v. I've just changed them all to stock (1.75v) and dropped speed by 10 - 20 mhz. They are all stable. At 1.85v performance was topped out on all boards. I'm gonna leave 'em this way for a few days/weeks to see.

It was just an experiment, but temps on all are down significantly, 2-5c, so I may just sacrifice a little performance for piece of mind.

I do the same thing. I will always spare 10-20mhz for lower temps. 10mhz will go unnoticed by the naked eye and barley be missed in benchmarks.

I overclocked my athalon 1.4 to 1533. I was running 1.80 volts. I was fooling around with it last nite then benching it. I found that under volting it made it bench faster. I even got my highest score on 3dmark 2001se. Is this normal? I have always heard you had to apply more voltage when overclocking not less.
My 3dmark score was 8400, now it will go over 8500. and in some scenes it will top 200 fps. never did that before. 218 fps the highest.

Interesting... I tried similar experiments recently, eager to see if I can get stable at 1.80v
