View Full Version : What are the max voltages?

10-17-01, 07:09 PM
I have my AMD 1.33 up to 1.5 now, seems to be running good (so far).

What is the maximum that I can crank up the voltages on the,

1.8 volt, 2.5 volt, and 3.3 volt lines?

I have the Abit KG7 RAID mobo.

Thats good ?. I don't worry those kinds of things.
On a weekly basis I monitor the voltage to the mother
board. I also measure the voltage to the power supply.
I know what the cpu wants and I correct it by average.
You over volt your chips but don't under volt them!
days overclocking bad. Not now days. I would stay
with'in .5 volt at the most. My thoughts.

If you want to push the 1.vcore to 1.85V, then that should do you well for 1.5ghz. I do however recommend you get the sufficient cooling for the cpu, it will get moltenly hot.

As for the ram, depends on what FSB and cas timing you want it to run at.

My 1.4 T-bird works fine at 1.85v max the mobo will go to.....

the only thing is to make sure you have enough cooling, basically you can crank the voltage up as high as you want as long as you have the cooling to get rid of the heat...... my 8000rpm fan of 51cfm air kicks the heat from the heatsink off real nice ;)

I'm running at 1.533Ghz right now.....

as for the others I've taken my RAM up a notch, then another notch, the second notch caused stability problems, perhaps If I had some ram sinks on the ram it would have done it, but also ram quality matters, so I was only able to kick it up 1 notch safely on the ram

as for the I/O voltage I was able to kick that up a couple of notches just fine, again make sure you have good system cooling as this increases heat on the mobo as well....
