So SL test their CPUs with a closed-loop wcooling thus, my question is, what is the highest STABLE overclock(1H or more of RealBench) you could get with your 4.7G SL chip and what temps you were getting(also water tepms) and what voltages.
Can you get 4.8G stable at some reasonable voltages ? or 4.85? or 4.75 ?
(i'm interested only in 1h+ stable oveclocks)
I don't have my 5960X up and running now, playing with Skylake at the moment. The most I could get realbench stable was 4.7GHz at 1.3V, even 1.425V wouldn't get 4.8 realbench stable. I didn't try going for 4.75.
At 1.3V temps weren't an issue (less than 80C), at 1.425V temperatures were uncomfortable in the 90s. Water temps stay about 2C above ambient.
