    Default E4500 @ 1.5vcore in bios, safe?

    My E4500 seems to need an insane amount of juice to get it past 3ghz. Right now I got it running at 3.2ghz (8x400) 1.5vcore in bios. 1.440v under load according to CPU-Z. Full load temps hover around 60-62c on both cores. If this OC proves to be stable and I decide to keep this OC should I be concerned about running my E4500 at 1.5 vcore in bios?

    As long as your system remains stable and the temperatures stay in the area they currently are, you should have no problems. If they start getting hotter, though, I would look at better cooling before going any higher.

    Alright that's good to hear. I don't plan on going any higher. Thank you much.

    EDIT: Is Intel's max vcore of 1.5v before or after vdroop?
