4.3 = 1.22v
4.6 = 1.3v
Great info for where I'm at in terms of very preliminary research. Thanks!
So with Intel themselves specin' their VID up to 1.350V, it seems it really becomes a matter of cooling alone for a long stretch before getting to the top end where you guys are pushing them... From the sounds of it I guess I should be able to set it to about 4.3Ghz or so without even needing to think about getting anything new for cooling at all......
And it sounds like I could get it much higher with something as simple as one of those plug-and-play water rad systems while still retaining rock-solid stability... I mean, cause with those numbers you guys are throwing around right now it sounds like I could set it to rock-stable 4.75Ghz with something as simple as that Corsair plug-n-play H80i.... (which is very decently priced, and not so bad and toy-like anymore, I mean it would be nothing to be proud of, but that should be way better than an air even with a good air-flow case)... giving me 10% more speed and at the same time adding to temp safety, which I want
Am I way off?Edited by USlatin - 2/25/13 at 3:11pm
