Running high VDIMM & low VCORE you risk to killing your Athlon 64 CPU

Madshrimps grouped some information from a AMD Athlon 64 overclocking thread over at Xtreme Systems:

Here's quote from Tony from OCZ who made the information public after he received the info from AMD themselves:"If you run a high vdimm and a low vcore with E die (revE, aka venice, san diego, manchester, toledo, newark, lancaster, denmark, venus, ..) you are running the risk of killing the cpu's. So if you have OCZ VX (or others) and you are not raising the vcore on your cpu you stand a chance of pumping a lot of current into the memory controller and causing permanent damage."
