Problematic i7-2600K?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've had my i7-2600k for a little less than a month now, and I'm not seeing the right performance. At this point I can't even get a stable 4.6Ghz OC at 1.4v. When at 4.7Ghz the voltage goes up to 1.55ish. I believe it is now stable at 4.5Ghz@1.4v but this seems pretty low from what many have gotten. I know that each chip is different, but it is below average? I'm pretty sure I'm using all the right settings, and my temps are 65-70c when I'm at 4.6-4.7Ghz at full load.

Thanks
My Rig

If you really want to, you could claim stability issues at stock speeds and send it in for RMA and see if you get a better chip out of it

I still have a few days to return it to Amazon if that's a better option if the chip is really that bad.

It seems like a lot of trouble. Do you think this chip is worse than a replacement would be?

I just got an i7 2600k a couple weeks back, and was able to hit 4.8GHz with ~1.35v, so it seems like maybe you have a grumpy chip. Can't hurt to try for a better one, right?

What can you say? Some batches are better than others. I've seen many people claim they hit a wall at 4.6 and couldn't even do that 24/7 stable. You CAN send it in, but you probably won't need to. phhh, 3.8 would be enough for any gamer, you an enthusiast? Wouldn't effect your game play.

I have mine at 4.8 when I do my school work.. but that is more for Adobe and auto-desk rendering. Just to improve times, but in gaming, correct me if I'm wrong, but you wouldn't notice the diff. on the highest settings.

I guess. I wonder what happens to CPUs that get sent back? I can't imagine the retailer takes a loss on it, but if they do, maybe for karma's sake we shouldn't advise people to RMA things that don't meet the full definition of "defective".

On the other hand, the people on this forum probably have different expectations than the average consumer.

edit: Bridden - it makes me happy that your system is named THOR and mine is named Twilight of The Thunder God.
