    What do you guys think is the max voltage I should be feeding my 2600+? And my Corsair XMS3200?

    I want to be able to run these levels on a daily basis...

    I would also like suggestions as to what I should set them at when i am going for max 3dmarks...(for maybe a half an hour)

    my case and cpu cooling is overadequate...i haven't even got the cpu over 40C with a 400myz overclock...

    I keep on reading different things...right now i'm afraid to go above 1.850 on the cpu and 2.77 on the memory...

    thanks guys

    Well ya 0.02v above what I'd go with the memory but so long as ya can keep the CPU below 50C under full load (100% CPU use) I can't see any probs with 1.95v bein' used on it. :devil win

    How lucky do ya feel? :devil:

    Actually, his ram should be running @ 2.6 when not oc'ng... from what I've heard (on these forums, not trying to take credit away, just forget who said it) it don't boot up at 2.5v ... I run my ram at 2.7v when oc'ng, have no heat issues with it (Kingston, 256MB 8x32mb single sided) and I've even run it at 2.8 V to get the ram to run stabily at 466mhz (from 333 (175mhz fsb, 2.66 ddr:cpu ratio)) again with absolutely minimal heat increase. But ya, he shouldn't have to go over 2.7 at most... I'd say bump it down too unless it is absolutely stable and there's next to no heat being generated by it (or what you think is tolerable)
