1.304? Isn't that really high? :/

I can't find really average numbers, only some special low ones.

Some say it doesn't really matter for overclocking.. but i think it does. :p

Thoughts?

That voltage is fine. I'd only go to 1.4+ if you've got a water cooling setup though.

Max is 1.45v. Mhm, could be.. it's on stock speed right now.. i dunno if that means if it's on the actual vid though.. :/

I'll check.

If you're getting the TRUE, 1.45v would be no problem as long as your temps are fine. But 1.3v is NOTHING.

And thats not your vid. Use coretemp to see your vid.

Not at all. 1.3v is nothing. My X3350 takes 1.456v to keep things 100% stable at 4.0Ghz. As long as you keep your temps decent (mine tops out at around 68-70 @ 4.0Ghz) ~1.45 is fine. I run it 24/7 at 3.6 though as it only takes 1.28v and temps max out at around 55C at that speed.

The VID for my X3350 is 1.175v, which is lower than its C2Q version the Q9450. Some say a lower stock VID will let you overclock higher with less voltage, but i don't know how accurate that is.
