    Default Is Load-Line Calibration "Bad" for 45nm CPUs??

    Hello All,

    I am very new to the board (EP45-UD3P) and I am in the initial phases of overclocking my CPU.

    I have run across more than a handful threads where people will say that you shouldn't use LLC for 45nm CPUs, i.e. E8500. <--- what I have

    Is there some where that states either way officially?

    Thank you for your help.

    Yes, Intel designed Vdrop and Vdroop for a reason and it should not be disabled..... You said Officially now didn't you!!!

    Here is how and why it was designed, and why you should not disable it >>>

    As for your actual questions and concerns, as you said you have already been advised, the general consensus in the Overclocking world is NO it is NOT Safe for 45Nm CPU's.

    But, like you said there is many opinions on this. And they are just that, a Opinion

    So all up to you and your CPU my friend
