I overclocked my E5200 up to 3.75 and the voltage is 1.54v (Dont dare to go higher because of high voltage) It runs cool with my vendetta 2 cooler And is stable.

Could there be some long term effects on my cpu by running it at this voltage? I read about the E5200 and no one seems to want to put thier voltage higher then 1.4.

Thanks!

On 45nm Wolfdales Intel recommends 1.3625vcore max for long term, and specifies 1.45vcore as the absolute maximum. Or so i read around here somewhere.

1.54 is a lot, more then i would run.

I dunno, I ran my e8400 (45nm) at 1.54v. Alot of others have also proven that the chips will run for a good while. Mine ran at 1.38v for 6 months (with a bench or two up to 1.6v) and then ran 6 months @ 1.54v.

Whats the worst that could happen? you have to upgrade? :D If your temps are under 70c, go for it.

This is the first time, I see an E5200 needing 1.54volt to run @ 3.75ghz.

1.54, is it the vcore as set in bios, hidling in windows or under load? I'm surprised to see that you can manage temps at that vcore with a Vendetta 2, even if it's a good cooler.

Can you post more details, what motherboard is being used? Can we see some screenshots?

Yup, I have givein my 45nm chip 1.75 with air cooling, it still lives. It usually spends most of its time near 1.5v, or a bit over.. Its fine..
