I dont believe that.

Exactly. It was a surprise to me too. Even Intel didnt moan about it and changed the chip quite quickly. At first I didnt believe that either and thought it was a dead MB, until it turned out motherboard was performing like new.

I'm going out on a limb here and say it quit working.

Vcore offset is more finicky to find than manual vcore, however, because the vcore setting scales up as CPU frequency increases. That vcore scaling depends upon what is set by the motherboard manufacturer.

Depending upon the motherboard brand and model, the auto vcore setting for 4.2 GHz should be good enough. It would save more electricity when idle with lower voltage and increase vcore on load.

Pc just did not turn on. Though the shutdown was successful). It failed when no heavy loads or anything were running.

You mean leaving at auto, (NOT offset and NOT manual), and leaving multiplier at 42x ?

I hate it when people generalise and say "it stopped working" or "my cpu doesnt work". How does it stop working, did he get blue screen of death, if so which code. Did his pc fail to boot, crash at windows screen etc etc.

It failed when no heavy loads how so? Also pc failing to turn on could have been PSU lol.

Just run the prime95 for like 48 hours. To test if stable. This way if it can run for like a month straight without a bluescreen or anything weird going on with the computer it should have a long lifespan.

I am pretty sure you had a faulty CPU to begin with. I have seen two different 2600k CPU's which was bad from the day they arrived. They will run for months, might even run a year, but not completely stable. I used them in office PC's, where they the PC's are on for weeks without reboots, and faulty CPUs wont run completely stable for longer periods of time, they make applications hang and make stange behaviour, so they will need reboots. Over time they just get worse, and in the end they wont even load windows.

My own home computer has a 2600K, overclocked to 5.1GHz+ (daily 1.465v) from they day I got it, January 2011. I bench with it several times a week running (5.45ghz) vcore at 1.6v and I havent seen any issues with degrading or bad behaviour. You can nuke hard on the 2600k, if you cool it properly, and it seems you have ok cooling on yours.

No reason at all to OC using fixed core, not if you have offset, additional turbo voltage, Turbo and EIST capabilities...not at the Sandy Bridge platform...

@ OP, IF (and that's a big "if") your chip died, i doubt it's because of the OC...
