my 2500k draws about 1.52v for 5ghz max load. Too high for 24/7?

depends on temps, over 80C constantly isnt gonna do it any favours. Also how long you plan on keeping the chip for?

From posts that I have read, most people that are able to reach 5.0GHz can do so with somewhere between 1.37 and 1.46V. In my opinion (and probably a fair amount of people) you are using a possibly dangerous voltage to use all the time.

I would try and and bump down the Vcore 1 or 2 notches and run some stability test. It's possible you need less voltage than you think.

Not sure tbh. Usually a year to 18mths I switch cpu. Temps are not an issue really.

yes if I set it to say 1.48 though cpu shows it drawing MUCH more on prime 95. Not sure if worth it though, I have 4.8ghz at under/touching on 1.4v.

Have a mental barrier of pushing it past 1.5v lol

IF your setting cpu vcore in bios to 1.48 and it is using more than that in windows under load you have wrong LLC setting. Voltage in window should never be more than what you set in bios.

it's at ultra, of course it could be cpu-z showing wrong data...

Yes, I would lower the LLC setting if it's enabled. That is most likely. Also, maybe you have a + offset voltage in use? CPU-Z could be showing the wrong data, but probably not. You could double check with HWMonitor or the Asus Suite.

I was wondering if I needed to adjust the core and i/o current limits, trying to get into the 5.0ghz stable range, currently at 4.8ghz without touching it, I figured since I dont use turbo it wasnt needed but I have read that this needs to be changed, wonder if thats the missing link to higher stable OC or maybe 4.8 is just my max regardless
