My System Specs

Default CPU VTT

Hey guys, I am trying to get my 860 to 4Ghz and I know that VTT is touchy to play with. First time I oc a 1156 or 1366 board. I also no ( from a source that can be wrong ) that the 860 should not exeed 1.21VTT. Is there any way to see in windows what is my VTT ( if left to auto ). How do it play with the voltage also, If I get VTT up can i get voltage down? Well. If you guys know more about it please tell me.

Why did you leave it on Auto? the lowest setting in the list is *usually* auto. 1.22V VTT is safe, people consider 1.4V VTT as max for safety, so IMO keep pushing it, id probably go even further, up to around 1.5v for 24/7. Same as people used to say max voltage for a Q6600 vcore should be 1.5V for 24/7, hell im running 1.65V 24/7 since like forever...
