Ok,

my PC has hit 310MHz FSB with the VIO at 3.95V according to the bios. Now, will a VIO this high damage my components or just run everything hotter.

btw, the Athlon 1giger is now at 1398MHz! @ 155/310FSB.

if i use 3.85VIO then I cant do 155mhz but rather 152MHz. so I am wondering the truth about the VIO voltage and if it really damages anything.

As far as i know voltage does not kill things, heat kills things. However, move voltage makes more heat. Generally it will be unstable before it will die, except in extreme cases.

3.95V is to high for my likings....

3.8V is were the danger starts.
3.5V-3.6V is what my rigs generaly run at.
