Sandy Bridge folding voltage

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Since my rigs have been stable folding for a bit, I want to look into higher overclocks. I got into my head that I shouldn't go much higher than 1.40v so I was able to get the 2500k to 4.7GHz and the 2600K to 4.8GHz.

My question is how high a voltage are you using for 24/7 Sandy Bridge folding?

I have mine at 1.375 volts at the core... it depends on the chip. my desktop has to be at 1.4 to hit 4.8. That's on all the 2600K's i own.

What programs do you use to stress test in Linux? And which programs are you using to monitor temps / voltages?

I'm going to be running Ubuntu 10.10, parts arrive Friday. Trying to get a headstart on learning a new OS.

Folding for stress, lm-sensors for monitoring temps tho not all mobos are compatible. I saw a suggestion about another program but I can't remember where or what it was.

Once you know what your temps range between and are comfortable with it, don't use any monitoring software as it eats away precious CPU cycles.

My motherboard is not compatible. I did my stress testing using Windows 7 on a small hard drive. All the temperatures were in the low 60's at the max when it was 80* in the room. I switched hard drives and started folding.

that's what i did when I stressed tested mine to find the max temps under load. I installed windows, and ran a few smp work units. figured out my temps and when I was happy, I installed linux and away I went.

I may be insane and shortening the life of my 2500k but take a look at my sig rig. That currently setup for and folding hugeadv. Temps stay in the mid 70s on my H70.

Swyped from my Gingerbread house.

5.1Ghz @ 1.472v vcore
How long have you had it at that vcore?
