I have a P4 3.2C on an ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe board overclocked to 3.6 (FSB 225) with voltage set manually to 1.575v.

For RAM, I have 2x512 OCZ 3500EB @2.85v (2.5-3-2-5).

My system is very stable - however, I do have one concern....my VCore voltage readings on both CPUID and the ASUS Probe Utility read 1.635 (stable).

The CPU temp never rises above 29C/no load and 43C under load (Sandra Burn-in). I understand the danger threshhold for this P4 to be 1.6v.

Have any of you with similar rigs experienced this? If so, what did you do to remedy? If there is no cause for concern, I'll leave it as is.

Although not the same proc, I have a P4 3.0C on the same board with OCZPC3700EB. The proc is oc'd to 3.5GHz (FSB@235). I have set the voltage manually at 1.6, 1.625 and 1.65 (trying different settings to get teh FSB higher).

I have seen my vcore between 1.5-1.7: usually under full load it droops and goes high when at idle. There is a mod that can be done and can minimise the droop.

Temps upwards of 52C under full load.

I have not had any cause for concern with the vdroop although I wish it did not happen.

Asus Motherboards tend to Overvolt. my CPU(2500+)'s Vcore is set to 1.8V and Asuses PC probe and my Bios shows it as 1.856V which seems to be typical of many asus motherboards

For Intel boards they tend to overvolt at idle but droop under full load - currently I'm manually set at 1.600v and running two F@H and vcore is @1.488-1.504 (based on Asus probe).

I have found the same to be true with my P4P800, the voltage seems a bit high while idling, but droops a bit when stressed

I also have the same thing happening with my 2500+.
