Burn in question


I've just get a new 2500+ and it works very well at 200 X 11 w/ 1.675V. It is suggested that a burn in for a new CPU will unlock the maximum poteneial. Do I actually need a burn in for my new 2500+, does it help further improve the performance (say further reduce the Vcore for 200 X 11)

Thanks for all first.

not at all, if you're satisfied with the results so far, just leave it be

burn in's are more useful for helping the thermal paste settle, rather than helping lower the voltage

hope this helps
