i7 860 voltages
Hey guys,

Is 1.376v okay for an i7 860 overclocked to 3.8Ghz? WITH HT OFF ?(Voltages set to auto in bios)

Thats the voltage Cpu-z is giving out when stress testing with Linx and Prime 95...its done 12 passes in both of these stress tests and seems fine so far.

Im getting 73,71,69,71 full load temps on a prolimatech megahalems :blarg:

I was going to do the voltages manualy but not sure where to even start :clap:

I would say that is fine yeah. Why HT off?

HT off,Well i heard it does not really do anything for a gaming system and gaming is what i do mostly + i heard it produces more heat when enabled so i just turned it off. :)

I think it's pretty high for 3.8, even for HT on. Probably you could do with 1.33 or even less.
