You said 2 days. If the chip was going to burn on you it would have burned after the first few hours really.

I don't think that 1.6 will make the chip more power hungry as long as temps were respectable. 1.52 was apparently the safe voltage for a longer overclock session filled with stress tests. 1.6 should not have done this to the chip unless you ran intense testing for 48 hours straight.

Even then your computer would have BSOD because it would have wanted more power.

But then again, it very well could have been a bad overclock, and now your chip wants more power, I have heard about cases like these where chips over time want more and more power, or after an overclocking session the chip will only function at a higher vcore.

I mean it functions just fine at VCORE of 1.325 -1.400....

It's almost like I should throw it in the other board and get a case. I have a bunch of good VGA cards (I have 3 Geforce 680's saving them for Ivy Bridge build native PCI 3.0) 3 Geforce 590's which are still excellent cards IMO, a 1200w PSU, Drives, Ram. All I really need is a cheap case and cooling... Just run the chip with the power it requires by default. I suspect it is safe to do.

I agree. It seems to make no sense that the CPU would fail just because of that VCORE. I believe I benchmarked for a very short period of time. I believe I ran 3D Mark Vantage with my GPU's overclocked as well. Made number 7 in the extreme hall of fame.

A bad overclock.

Impressive score man!


Yeah I would try a different motherboard if you have one. Just run the chip with it's stock settings and power and work from there.

Another option could be to run the chip in offset mode and leave it on auto. Run Prime 95 and see how much the chip is drawing, and work around from there. I still fail to understand how the chip would all of the sudden want THAT much more power, usually a "burn in" will happen with intel chips that are overclocked but usually that requires something like 0.05V to 0.10 V to be added at the MAX.

This chip can hit 4.6-4.7 at around 1.4V, the chip at stock should not be drawing this much power regardless if you ran it even at 1.6V. Temps are not even an issue because you would have BSOD in a instant if temps were too high for the chip.

In the end I still can't really put a finger on it, just try a different motherboard and perhaps try a lesser amount of RAM.


EDIT: Just noticed, you said you had already tried your spare motherboard, which now makes me question the CPU, it could have very well been a bad overclock that caused some damage to the chip now that I think about it. It's not uncommon for chips to demand more and more power if they are damaged, eventually just frying the chip.

Yikes the thought of killing a $1k CPU sends shivers down my spine.

Best of luck man.

I got a CPU guy.

Lol
