If you are, please let me know how long you're running at 1.85v and what chip you have. And the actual voltage Windows displays.. thanks..

When benching i put the vcore to 1.85 in bios and it undervolts to 1.82load. I only leave here for about 2-3 hours of benching about every 2nd day or so...:)

Hi, ......running 2.2 @ 2.92Ghz 2.0v in Bios 1.89v-1.92v in Windows.

Been running at this speed /voltage for approx 7 months.

Are you using a Vapo chill?? or something else??

If you're going to run your P4 at 1.8 volts (or more) here's another hobby you might like: Put $200 in a pile and set it on fire. With small bills you could get a fairly impressive little fire for your investment.

I ran a 2.0A at 2660 with 1.9v, ~1.86 in windows, for about 3 months stable before it started getting flakey and i had to back it down to about 2.4 at 1.725

I ran my 2.0a @ 1.8 bios => ~1.85 actual, it only gave me about 80Mhz more than at 1.7v so I (wisely?) thought it wasn't worth it. I want this chip to last so it can go in another rig when i've got some more dough for something new.

The P4PE overvolts by a lot. at 1.85v in the bios it's like 1.968v at idle..:eek:

I found that with my P4PE I had for a few days that it would overvolt by .1 volts and then it would go back to what it was set at in bios when on load

eg 1.70 gave 1.80 idle and then 1.70ish for load....:)

Yer see I dont agree with that. IMO people are very paranoid about the intel cpus dieing. Its just like ocing i rekon, its all about the LUCK

Some can run more than 1.75 24/7 (eg me) and some peoples cpus die after 2 weeks of it.....

Im gonna get flamed for this but if a cpu dies, then I look at the user....not the vcore, or the cpu or anything like that....:)

LUCK!!! :D Yep thats what defines O/clocking .....it just depends on how far you are willing to push it!!!!:)

Seen some NW,s die early, seen some STILL running at high voltage , its NOT a hard and fast rule .

Are you feeling LUCKY! :D

Been running my P4 2.4 (0c 3000) at 1.85 since May with no problems, but i wouldn't recommend it. I've got the Prometeia and would just buy a new one if it burns out.

Now let's see how the P4 3.006 is gonna do. As soon as I can find one, I'll be OCing that puppy.

Ran a 2.0A at 1.80v in BIOS on my P4T533 (overvolt enabled) for a while trying to get it stable. Actual voltage idle was 1.88v or so... and it didn't help at all. In fact, it looked more unstable the higher the voltage (no it wasn't cooling @ 31C full load watercooled).

Yeah I sold that POS chip. =)

does running the chip at a voltage higher then 1.85 make the chip die due to heat or due to just the chip not being able to handle the high voltage? will better cooling make it ok to raise the voltage, or will the high voltage kill the chip no matter what cooling i have?
