Hey y'all , been awhile.

I just got my new 965 installed last night and it rocks!! I want to do a mild overclock for some testing , I am just going to pop up the CPU multi a tad or two and see how it goes.

I have my voltage set at 1.375 now in BIOS but it shows 1.36 in CPUZ (VDroop??) and thats cool as the chip plays games for hours like a champ and stays nice and cool , but I am wondering from those that have more experience then I with this chip what voltage setting is optimal??

thanks for any advice and info!!

PS: my chip is the 125watt RB-C3

this chip is pretty good with the volts a 'light' oc for this tbh is 3.8 and you should be able to hit that with the volts you're running now. if its a good chip you could hit 4.2 if your cooler is up to it.
