Is my 2600k chip "low voltage" ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
2 days ago i upgraded my 2500k to a 2600k. I was praying for a low voltage chip and the miracle came.
I managed to run stable at 5Ghz at 1,4V , but i noticed the damn HT produces a lot of heat frown.gif
So i dropped the frequency to 4.7 at 1,30V.

Opinions?

That's really good man. Excellent voltages if it's stable.

I'd run Prime for 12 hours if you haven't already and confirm stability. Just because a chip will boot at that frequency/voltage doesn't mean it's stable.

BUT if it is, you definitely got a sweet chip! thumb.gif

I throwed lynx for 30 minutes , no bsod.
A lot of continuous benches , cinebench,aida64,sandra ect , no problems so far.
I got a bsod only when i attempted to run lynx @5Ghz with 1,36V tongue.gif
It booted ok , but i noticed 5Ghz@1,36 , was giving me bsod only when the avx instructions was stressed...exclamation.gif

Nice, bump up that voltage a bit and get'er stable at 5Ghz! I'll be checking back to see your results. tongue.gif

If your ONLY gaming, then the upgrade is pointless. But if you could use the extra 4 threads to your advantage as in rendering, or something that is coded to use ALL 8 cores, or even more than 4, then yes, it's a worthy upgrade.

I admit yes...except the overall multi threaded superiority over the 2500k, the "feeling" of the pc is different, is even more faster.. i wasn't expecting that to be honest. But im pretty happy i upgraded.
I run heavy programs at the same time,photoshop,dreameaver,fireworks ...there the difference was even more obvious..
2500k is a fast cpu , 2600k is a very fast cpu. This is my personal conclusion smile.gif

Windows always feels faster to me on the HT cpu's over the 2500k. Don't know why. There's no difference in gaming for sure.

Sandly i need water cooling to continue to 5GHz frown.gif
I run prime 4,9Ghz @1,37 , but temps on 2 cores exceed 90c , and 1 thread dies lol
No bsod , or aplication error , but 1 thread dies , i have a feeling is 1 thread coming from the hottest core...hmmmm
Should i go for a Kuhler 920?biggrin.gif
