Haven't OC'd yet but looking for 4.5 at 1.28V and if I can do that then I can do 4.6 at 1.33-1.34V.
E - Yes, I agree with corky, 4.5-4.6 is the best range and I'd go as far as to say that >90% of Sandy OC's are in that range. Also, my strategy for OC'ing SB for everyone who has a 2500k system that I build is:
1) 4.6 @ 1.35
2) If Yes - lower Vcore till stable; If No - 4.5 at 1.3
3) Lower Vcore until stable.
(thats a short version, i run 20 passes of ibt @ max to stabilize between voltage bumps and when i reach a final oc, i use prime for an hour on blend)

I agree. I also use 4.5GHz. I have a somewhat mediocre 2500K so it needs about ~1.368v Vcore for Prime95 Blend stability. I use Offset and all power features enabled. And my temps are fine

I agree with your observations, that is why I started this poll, to see if this holds true. Are most people using their Sandy in the 4.5GHz range for 24/7.

I believe so, but wow you have a bad chip.

Yes, but there are people with worse chips than mine. Also, since I use 4.5GHz for 24/7 and have great load temps, it really does not matter. I'm well below 1.4v Vcore.

True, but I would never go above 1.35V 24/7. On the other hand if your temps are good then its fine.

2600k at 4.7GHz needs 1.42V to be AVX stable .... I wonder how long it will last
