Sandy Bridge Degrade

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i was wondering if anyone has had their i7/i5 degrade or burn out to over clocking. and if they have what voltages was it at and so on.
i've been trying to find information on the SB series degrading/burning out but was unsuccesful.

From what I've gathered, there is a lot that is not quite know about appropriate voltages with SB. Most saying, and supposedly according to intel, that 1.52v is the max safe vcore. Others say 1.45v and some refuse to go over 1.4v.

All I can tell you if that I haven't heard of anyone degrading their chip at ANY of those voltages. Most of the time, people say their chip degraded when it wasn't really stable in the first place. IMO OC it as far as it will go, I wouldn't go over 1.52v 24/7. Chip are fairly tough, it take a lot to kill one. If you do, intel has a replacement program anyway. thumb.gif

:thinking.gif: 1.76 may be too much :lachen.gif: devil.gif
I haven't had a board last long enough to find out
1.76v + Asrock pro-3m=explodo
I really haven't read anything about chips degrading

yeah i hadn't read or heard of a chip actually burning out or degrading. So i figured i would ask where all the oveclockers came and see what they thought.
