2600k Nomming Vcore. how do i stop it?? - Page 2

post #11 of 17

my bad, it looks like 1.366 and 1.371v is what my VID is showing in core temp. after 24 hrs of prime blend, my temps max hovers around 75 and has maxed at 79. should i worry. another thing is that im not sure i gave the thermal paste enough time to properly bind. because it looks like 75 is the max. ill probably push my luck a bit further.

I'm still changing my OC settings but your voltage is about the same as mine, probably the only difference is I've set PLL voltage to 1.50v (as it's stable at that for me). My CPU is running at around 70C-72C under Prime95 1792K FFT. I'll be doing mine again tomorrow though as I am adding another 4GB of memory to the system, but I have to get the Noctua heatsink off in order to access all the memory slots. I'm currently using Arctic MX-3 as I ran out of the NT-H1 TIM, however I should be using NT-H1 again tomorrow. My strategy is to put some TIM on the CPU's IHS and spread it in a thin and even layer over the entire IHS area, then put the heatsink on it and avoid rotating or moving the heatsink when fixing it down.

I Dont want my chip to need more juice :/ lol. but ya ill prolly do a reseat, I feel god about it right now. maxing about 80c at 4.7. just crashed on 4.8 >. oh well, 4.7 is a good step up from stock . im not too upset

Now, Obviously the name of this site is overclock.net, and I'm quite aware of the idea behind it. We all want to squeeze every last ounce of juice out of our equipment.

But let me ask you this. Why not drop from 4.7 to 4.5. You could probably get a stable, healthy overclock at something below 1.35v, drop your temps by a good margin all while sacrificing 200 MHZ. What's that, less than 5%? Only benchmarks will tell the difference between 200 MHZ.

I'm not being a smartass either

I did the same for the sake of having a lower voltage and temp, and i'm quite happy. I lowered my temps from 85c to 65c, and reduced my voltage from 1.45 to 1.325

i mean..... i know.... :/ but i feel like my temps really arent bad. its hovering at a 75 max, but sometime in my 20 hour stress test, it hit 80. but i will probably lower it a few hundred Mhz lol

To anyone interested, i just did the 235th reseating of my d14, and applying a thin layer with a card to the cooler, and a vert. line (as described on the arctic silver site), i am not getting a max of 63 to 64 degrees. not to mention, much more even temps across the cores. only like a 5 degree change among the highest and lowest temps. still at 4.7Ghz, and vcore hitting 1.37 on level 7 LLC. now as another question, if i want to hit 4.8-5.0, if i stay under 70c, would a vcore under 1.4 decrease my cpu lifetime? thats all im worried about, and multiple opinions would be very nice
