Thread: Safe Vcore for the P4

    Okay, I'm not at all familiar with the Vcore of the Pentium 4 and it's safety ranges. I've got my 1.6A running at 2.24Ghz with a 1.6v Vcore and the stock Intel 'sink. Now my guess is that I can safely go up to 1.7 volts as necessary, and still stay decently cool. I've tried to find some decent reads on the web, but I'm not really coming up with anything.

    I have not been keeping up with the P4 like I should, but my searches are turning out in vain.

    1.65V @ 2.24GHz, but it was failing prime 95 within an hour. I've got it currently @ 2.16GHz with a 5.75 Vcore and no errors in 12+ hours of Prime 95.

    The stock one. Intel's 'sinks are pretty good and not too loud. I've seen the ongoing heatsink review at Dan's Data, and the P4 coolers are pretty close together. There are better ones, but they're not enough for me to want to switch this one out just yet.
