Except that in this example, there are no speed limits BUT the Ferrari will breakdown after 2 months of use.

Unsustainable makes it useless. Cool, but still useless.

Hey guyz! I just overclocked my CPU to over 9000MHZ, and it booted Windows in 3.7 seconds! It immediately died and took the rest of my computer with it, but it was well worth it!

Overclocking FTW!

If I understand things correctly. Usually people call other people "chickens" who never dares to try anything new, especially just for the thrill.

Burning up a chip for ~200$ and having a lot of fun while doing it is does make it worth the while and the money.

Anyways. As soon as Asrock lifts the vcore limit this chip will die one way or another. It's just a CPU.. When IVY is out I dare to say 5.7GHz will mostly look like an everyday overclock, but who knows?

Nice 57x bench XrOo!

I thought that chip looked very promising when you first posted about it early this month... running/gaming/stressing at 48x (4c/4t) @ ~1.256v load.

Nobody should be called a chicken just because they refuse to go on suicide runs with their hardware.

Overclocking is good, it's great, but only up to a certain point. If you can't have it running 24/7 and or you run the risk of it dying after several weeks or a few short months, then it's all pointless.

What's the point of having a 12 incher if you're completely impotent?

So what if it dies? It's not like I'm losing a right hand really. I'd rather taste wine and be able to tell how it tastes like, than refuse to taste it because of being scared to get intoxicated. But that's what makes people so great. Different opinions. You think it's useless trying out SuperPI at 5.7. And I think it's just simply kinda cool.

Do you always make a post in everyone's thread who tries to reach high clocks saying that it's completelly useless? Obviously it's rather useless to point it out as they've already tried high clocks ^_^ And it's most likely not gonna stop them trying from pushing higher.

But yeah, I see your point of view. I run 24/7 with 4.8 as I see no reason using 5.0-5.4. Especially as I rarely game. Mostly just downloading movies and burning them. The only thing that would make me cry is having my BD writer crashing on me ruining a good fridaynight movie.

So anyways.. You stay at 4.0 safely and I will keep pushing it until it dies. Simple as that

A cpu isn't a disposable razor, it should last longer than a few test benches at insane volts

It's your money, you can do whatever you like. But it's like buying a great wine only to be able to sample an ounce of it before it goes bad rather than trying the entire bottle of a very good wine.

No, but I sometimes question why people throw money away for the sake of getting "good numbers" on a benchmark.

It's your money man, you can do whatever you like, but in the end my car gets me to my destination pretty quickly while yours destroys my car in the first few miles then dies on the side of the road. There's no point in having a rocket car if it dies after a mile. It's fun, sure, and you can brag about how fast it goes, but it really doesn't get you anywhere.




Anyway, enjoy your speeds

Id call myself a risk taking overclocker, but i always set myself limits. In my case i didn't want to push 1.58v and that nett me 5.5Ghz HT on. But that was as far as i wanted to go.

As for the OP pushing over 1.65v; it's his chip so he should just go for it if he wants to. I think it's a great overclock and worthy of a pat on the back.

Maybe my chip could do it at those volts, but i'm not game enough to try so kudos to the OP for a job well done.

Overclocking is a hobby and a passion and we gather on forums like these to show our exploits. Its a money sink and its pointless, but as long as we enjoy ourselves its worth it!

Well said. Its your chip, enjoy yourself.
