    e6600, evga 680i, gamexstream 700w volatage problems.

    I have the above components and set 1.5v in bios to the cpu. However, in CPU-z it will show 1.255v and then jump to 1.464v occasionally. Any ideas? It's fairly unstable as well. I've overclocked an e6300 with ds3 to 3.5ghz solid before. Am I just forgetting something? Thanks!

    I need DDR2 that is good to 500+ (On a budget)

    I have an excellent e6300 that will do 3.5 ghz stock volts... My DS3 seems to be going high, but it's all limited by my 667 twinx ram that surprisingly will do around 970ish with loose timings. I need new ram that will perform well and almost certainly hit 500 and beyond. I need to get these...

    Voltage (Opteron 165) Cpu-z quite far off of bios.

    In my ultra-d I set the CPU voltage to 123% x 1.3v = 1.599v. However, CPU-Z reads out @ 1.536 which is quite a bit off. Which should I trust? I want to keep my cpu at or below 1.6v which I've heard is safe for water, but that is what I've set in the bios. If cpu-z is correct though, I guess I'd...

    vf900 + x1900xt + LL v1200b Plus Case = High temps

    Hello, I think that the problem (80c+ load temps) is due to the upside down arrangement in my case which would flip the heatpipes. Otherwise, what do you think the problem is? I used their thermal paste as my AS5 is 6 hours away (plan on applying tommorow). Any ideas?
