0.1 doesn't sound like a lot, but trust me, there's a BIG difference between 1.3V and 1.4V. If you have the time to experiment I'd say go as low as 0.01V increments, but that's likely to take a very long time. Maybe try 0.05 until its unstable, then increase by 0.01 or 0.02 until it can pass Prime95.

The Auto setting will work fine, it's just that running the CPU at a higher voltage than you need (and any auto setting will run it higher than necessary) makes the CPU run hotter and reduces lifespan. That's why I'd say use the Auto as a guideline, than reduce it until you've got a VERY solid OC.

Lo Mein said that, and I think he knows a little more about dancing than I do pal, because he invented it! Then he perfected it so that no man could best him in the club of honor.
Then he used his prize money to buy two of every whore on Earth. Then he herded them all onto a boat, then they all beat the crap out of every single one of him.
