    Unhappy intel e4500 default voltage too high!?

    i got a brand new revision m0 e4500 on a msi p35 neo2 mobo

    i go into cpu-z and the core voltage is 1.325V with no OCing!! tested with orthos and was stable.

    just to get it orthos and OCCT stable @ 2.7 ghz, i had to raise the cpu voltage to 1.375!

    what is wrong?? arent these numbers too high?? my friend has a e6600 @ 3.2 ghz @ default voltage! (1.184v or something)

    i am on stock fan with idle temps of 25 - 30C, at load it is 50C

    pls help!!

    these are somewhat high, but you cant try to lower the voltages yourself, I would say lower them and keep testing, I think you can be fine at 1.16....just try

    Re: intel e4500 default voltage too high!?

    Yeah I can't see you causing any damage to the chip by undervolting it you would need to check for stability mind. You also have to remember that not all chips are created equal and some just wont clock as high as others and some come with high voltages. Each chips voltage is set individually when it is tested some are just higher than others oh and 50°C under load isn't that high really what cooler?

    my e4500 defaults to 1.325v too - I can do 300x10 stable at these voltages though...
