    I/O voltage..........Whats safe?

    Hi im running a P2-350@490 and its fine but im using pc100 ram @ 140 fsb when i take it to 143 fsb 500 it has errors loading into windows.
    I asumed this is the ram as my processor runs at 36c max so I boosted the I/O voltage to see if the ram would prefer that 3.5 to 3.6 and it ran ROCK SOLID the only problem is will running the I/O voltage at 3.6 damage my graphics card or ram? the temp of my card is 26c?

    3.6 isn't too bad. Alot of mobo have it running @ 3.5 by default or after BIOS flash (so I assume 3.5 is quite acceptible)/

    Is set my K7M to 3.56V. It adds more heat, more than you would think - but if you cool the entire system more, then its ok.

    This I/O voltage affects ALL parts of your system, everything that uses power will use a little more -> more heat.

    Its not dangerous or anything - dont get me wrong!

    It just requires more juice and makes more heat (DIMMs and chipset get warmer).
