Hey guys,

So recently I upgraded my system to LGA 2011 :
Intel i7 3930K
ASRock X79 Extreme 9
G.Skill Ripjaws X 4x4Gb 2133mhz
Sapphire HD7970 Crossfire
CPU running on custom watercooling so temps are no issue under 24/7 overclocks

I have a few questions about overclocking SB-E on LGA2011 ...

1.) I have heard that it is not recommended to use the BCLK Straps on LGA2011 to overclock and to rather use multipliers. Apparently they can cause degradation and problems ? Is there any truth to this ?

2.) What is the safe recommended temperature for SB-E ?

3.) The most important question for me... What is a safe voltage for SB-E ? I've heard that over a certain voltage, degradation with occur. Im aiming to keep this chip overclocked for around 2 years and would like it not to die on me tongue.gif I would like to know what voltage to aim for so I can base a stable overclock around that voltage .

Thanks for all your help

Nice rig.


1. No, I have to use BCLK to achive the oc I want.

2. 70c but that's just me. Also if you keep it below that it shouldn't degrade. Many years in that cpu.

3. Most importantly watch those temp's also monitor your vrm temp's, I just touch the heatsink every once a while.
