Thanks.

Well, unable to move from 1.50 V, I left it steady at 4.2 GHz, 3000MHz NB and 1600MHz RAMS.



Voltages:

CPU: 1,48v-1,50v load
NB:1,16v
CPU/NB:1.37v
HT:1,26v
RAM:1,65v
SB/PCIe/PLL:1,82v
VDDA: Stock (2.50v)

Temps: Idle:18 +/- Load 31/33 +/-

-How to see the voltages?. Are fine for everyday use?

Hi

Nice 1GHz O/C you have achieved.

The voltages for the Motherboard are all OK and although the Voltage for the CPU is at the top end, I don't think you will have too many issues running 24/7 as your temperatures are really good.

Overclocking, by its very nature, can shorten the life expectancy of the components and this is always something you need to bear in mind. The faster and harder you push your PC the shorter life span it may have and it is always a compromise between the two. As I mentioned before I decided to pull my own system back to a modest 3.8GHz on the CPU,  the RAM running at 1333MHz because of the known issues with running RAM at a higher speed on AM3 CPU's, with all other settings left at default. This is a compromise between extra speed or PC longevity and I decided I would like my parts to last as long as possible.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

I know you do OC shortens the lifespan of the components, but I get the best possible performance, without me through voltages.
When we talk about it shortens the life, the processor is not going to last a year or two, will take her years, but less than if this stock. right?

Yes it shouldn't make a drastic reduction in the lifespan expected but it obviously depends on the amount of stress that you put the components under through the overclock. Voltage and heat are the real killers.

Mainly use the PC to play from time to time, and spend some bech, but little else. So it is not that much time under great stress.

By the way, today I downloaded the Easy Tune 6, and I have a problem.

Why are not the voltages?



Thanks.

Hi,

you might find AMD Overdrive better for checking temperatures and voltages, especially when overclocking as a lot of software, such as EasyTune6 struggle with this.

You can download AMD Overdrive from here: http://game.amd.com/es-es/drivers_overdrive.aspx

I'd be careful with using AOD to check voltages or overclock values. I've had it displaying false info on 2 PCs in a row so far. CPUID HW Monitor is my tool of choice if I a want to take a quick peek. It's simple, somewhat crude but fast and shows a lot of info. Take note that it's not very detailed in terms of voltage readings.

Still, that's better than AOD telling me that my RAM, rated at 1.65v, is running 1.60v heavily overclocked. Especially when it's at 1.72v in reality.
