    Hi guys

    Sorry about yet another volt question but i have been reading a lot lately that high voltage can damage or kill a cpu. I have a newcastle 3500 running at 270x10 with mem at 225x3.

    To get these speeds stable i had to push the vcore to 1.62 (which tends to change to 1.66 under load), is this to high considering that a newcastle is 1.5v stock. All this talk of high voltage has got me panicking

    Thanks for looking :)

    That voltage is absolutely fine. :)

    Those 130nm chips can take a fair few volts.

    just off topic ( it saves me from starting another thread)

    is it safe to go over 1000 htt

    the reason i ask is at the moment i have the htt at 270x3 but my system is also stable at 270x4. if i set it x4 will i damage my computer in any way.

    thanks

    I'm sure it won't damage your computer but may lead to instability. Every guide I have read says to keep htt at or under 1000. As there is no performance gain by running over 1000 why risk it?
