How safe is this to run 24/7

I dont game alot and fold 24/7

how "SAFE" is this for 24/7 I dont mind the volts and all options are welcome i just can seem to find an answer between 1.45-1.5v being safe.

some say 1.45 some say 1.5? what do you think?

EDIT: pic now not a download

Looks fine to me. 1.488 seems pretty solid for 5.0 on a 2500K. As long as it doesn't get too hot, it should be fine at that voltage.

Temps seem good 67c max biggrin.gif i doubt they will get much worse. thanks for that thumb.gif

Now to hope it 100% stable (im not planing to run prime for 12-24hrs but fold 24/7 for a few more days) and monitor the temps

Safe depends on how long you intend to keep the CPU. If it's for a few years, than that voltage is too high - most would recommended 1.35 to 1.375 for long term stable use (so your current voltage is way off that range), and that's how I'm using my CPU (in fact I'm using 1.31v today).

Others though would say 1.425 to be the max voltage for medium term use, which may be your kind of deal biggrin.gif

Edit: There is also a reputable PC shop that has it's own guidelines for overclocking the 2600K (pretty much similar to yours). Here's the link: http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-358-IN.

They also recommend 1.425v to be the max safe voltage.

I have read things like this for years now, but I've been in the PC support business for 20 years, been overclocking for 15 years. I am yet to this day EVER to see a CPU fail. 0, nada, none. Hundreds of motherboards, power supply's,HDD's, some memory... but I've never ever seen a CPU failure in my life. Has anyone? I mean I'm sure if you completely cooked it, or your CPU fan failed I could see it happening, otherwise I've gotta call BS, until I see one.

How long you plan on keeping this cpu OP? 1 year I think your safe, if you want it for like 3 years I wouldnt go over 1.425ish volt. Its not always the heat that kills the cp, its still stressful putting that much volts through the cpu.

FYI Intel should honour an RMA in the event of your cpu dying if it has bene ran under 1.52v.

A long time ago a fan failed on an old AMD chip I was experimenting with. Let's just say there was some smoke...

Booted right up after replacing the fan. biggrin.gif

Personally I don't think anything that goes above Intel's spec on the voltage is safe. Going past 1.45v is pushing it IMO. 1.50v would be the absolute max considering the maximum VID without causing damage is 1.52. But it all comes down to preference.

Your temps are far enough in check to where i would say you are in safe zone land! thumb.gif

BTW I'm stable at 4.70 in the 1.3x volt region...I don't see how that extra 300 MHz requires 1.5 volts. rolleyes.gif

Well.. first off.. i would like to say.. congrats.. on the 5 ghz... I would agree on one of the comments above.. if you would like to keep the cpu for few years..then mabye would sugguest lowering the v-core little more... have u tried 1.45 v core? ... if you havent try to see if it can hold stable @ 1.45 v core.... if stable keep trying to lower it.. little bye little.. trial and error... pain in the ass let me tell you...

Good luck.. thumb.gif
