Ok, Recently I thought about overclocking one of my computers, but I Decided to try it on my oooooooold AMD Duron (Spitfire) 700 MHz first, seeing as if anything stuffed up i wouldnt mind as much.
Anyway, I load up CPU-Z To find that the voltage is set at "3.038".
In the pinned topic up top, it says that spitfire should have a voltage of about 1.6-1.7.
Isnt that like....Dangerous?!?! The CPU Usually runs about 45-47, Which is okay I Guess....But is this Voltage too high?
I never changed it since I've owned it, But my brother owned it back in the day when it was a good computer, he might have done it...But I dont see why you would just change the voltage and nothing else.
Should I lower the Voltage at all? How will this effect my computer?
Edit-I just checked in the bios to find out that the Vcore is actually 1.57....CPU-Z is wrong! It works fine with my other computer though.
I guess now my question is whats a suitable Voltage for the CPU? Should I put it up a notch then check with StressCPU?
