    Thumbs up Acrobat's ongoing temperature worries over? :P

    Hope people arent fed up of me going on about this But I think I had a bit of a breakthrough!

    Someone (I think on this forum), told me that my Gigabyte DS4 motherboard, picks a voltage for the CPU which is higher than it needs to be (higher than it should be?).

    So anyway, I lowered the voltage. It was about 1.235Volts before and the temperature of my E6600 under load (in intel-tat) was verging on 65 degrees. But I lowered it VERY slightly (just one option lower in the bios) to 1.228 and its knocked off about 7 degrees on my CPU when under load!

    Idle temp is about the same (maybe a degree lower), but 7 degrees under load is pretty good! Its taken it from about 64 or 65 down to about 58.

    So I think my worries may be over. Now all I need to do, is find out what the voltage is MEANT to be as standard. If its actually lower than what I have it at currently... then I can afford to lower it even more and get an even better temperature Maybe then, I can finally think about OverClocking it.

    SPCR often talks about deliberate undervolting as a means of being able to run the CPU cooler then it was even supposed to be (any CPU), so i think that although i'm sure there is a 'proper' voltage for C2D chips, you just lower the voltage as low as you can whilst still booting / stable running, and then increase if and only if you need more for overclocking.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    Dont forget to test overnight with Orthos after each time you lower the voltage, just to make sure its stable
