Evening all - I am in the middle of finding the solid OC with my 2600k. Naturally, I am BSOD'ing along the way.
Is there any harm in BSOD in general to the chip. OS side (I can redo that no problem) will BSODs kill your chip over the long haul. This is of course assuming that the vcore is staying within specs. (v1.5 is what I have read is tops.. I haven't gone above 1.35..too scared) This is probably the reason I can stress test at 4.8ghz.
I am stable at 4.6ghz / 1.3v / 54c under load.
What other voltages should I consider to push beyond this 4.6 mark? I have tried decreasing the PLL down to 1.75 but hasn't proven any more stable.
