    Simple question cant seem to find the answer anywhere. Whats the max safe voltage on the Athlon II chips for 24/7 usage.

    Building a budget rig for the misses, So I'll get some results up once she's sorted the rest of the money for the build

    Dunno what the max safe voltage is? . . . I've been using 1.55vCore for several months and everything seems fine! :) . . . . Not seen temps much above 55°C at extreme loads . . . normal full loads are sub 40°C most of the time (Air) . . .

    On the UnderVolting side of things two Athlon™ II's that I've tested have both run a mild overclock using 1.200vCore (1.425VID & 1.350VID) :cool:

    Athlon™ II X2 240 . . . . give it hell! :D

    Thought i'd be hearing from you.

    I'm hoping for around 3.2 but thats optimistic as its going to living in an asus ta-861

    i might try and squeeze a coolit eco in there if tubing will reach the front of the case, so I can have it folding
