Ok, I know we're all overclockers here, and so 'safe' for us would probably be 'downright stupid and reckless' for most sensible people - but I was interested to see what everyone thought about the volt mod. Specifically, is 2V+ safe for a duron/tbird? My duron 600 has maxed out at 918, with 1.94V as reported by Asus Probe. I'm sure with 2-2.1V I could get the gig, probably higher, but how high can I go before burning up? At the moment I'm watercooled, absolute maximum temp is 40C - and that's only after a day's use, as it heats the ambient temp up by a few degrees C! I reckon then I could keep load temps under 50C with 2-2.1V (and I'll be adding a few more case fans in the next week). I'm pretty confident I can do the mod without frying my lovely A7V, and I think it would be fun, I just need to hear from some people running at/above 2V to convince me it's 'safe'
