    E6300 @ 2800MHz with 1.225v (undervolt)!!!

    I can run my E6300 @ 2800MHz with 1.225v Stable ( 0.1v under 1.325 default) can it cause problem for my CPU?? like shorter lifespan or etc?

    less volts means less heat, means longer life

    Yea, most of the processors have overkill voltages. I can do 3200 @ 1.275v Stable .... so imagine what it would be if it was less. With EIST and C1E enabled, you can even do 2700 @ 1.075V ... but it's on small loads which is still pretty good.

    looks like a golden chip is it a week 26?

    Under volting the CPU really cant do much harm

    i lost two amd 939 chips to undervolting... certainly these chips are much different, but i always run +volts even at stock on all of my cpu's just to be safe...

    undervolting is probably more of a problem if you are using a pos mobo though.

    How do you figure that? Or did you just make it up?

    As far as I know theres no lower vcore setting under 1.325 on the aw9dmax... I'm just curious to see if I can undervolt and see if my cpu is stable. Though hamid, with C1E, its going to show vcore ranging from 1.19v to 1.36v... if you turn it off it'll stick at 1.36v. At least thats how my board is, set to 1.325, and shows 1.36v in uGuru utility. Also turn off EIST

    I see, i guess i just dont understand it, why not just see how far it goes on stock volts? Its not like they run hot at stock.

    Yeah I know, its just curiousity... though you're right I should just focus on seeing how far it gets with stock volts.
