I've seen more chips damaged from over using stress tests than anything else. My 2500k is running at 5GHz @ 1.375v loaded without any problems and has been since the day I purchased it. I play any and all games, benchmarks, etc...for hours on end without any problems. I could stress the chip harder by running LinX for an hour or Prime95 for 12+, but I don't care about being in any clubs or groups so I don't put my chips through all the stress and hassle.
You may want to post up other voltages as well. Vcore is only a small part of the voltage spectrum and there voltages like DRAM, VCCIO, PLL, and others can really harm a system if they go unchecked or get too high.

Second this, My 2500k 5ghz 1.4v in bios. I used to run 1.45v on the same chip for 4.8ghz on a different board but have swapped for a z77 which is more stable at a lower voltage. If temps worry you perhaps upgrade your cooler but your voltage is fine

Im not worrying that much, I just dont want to degrade the chip like mental. In most games the cpu isnt gonna be at 100% all the time so I would say im gonna see how I feel with the 5GHz and If I get any blue screens and stuff I will post them back here and probably down clock to 4.8-4.9

There's most of the voltage's. Im not actually overclocking in the OS, I do it all in the BIOS.

that is an incorrect fact. the chip cannot be damaged at a voltage like these. Benchers run chips at 1.8 and dont hurt them. even extended periods of time as long as his chips is within the safe thermal window he is fine

But still 4.7-4.9GHz is a great clock
that is a good clock i would recomend getting a bigger cooler though. you may be able to get a 5ghz stable clock with a notch more voltage

tahts a good plan. You wont degrade your chip though so i wouldnt worry abotu that

What does the BCLK do ? I have seen people using it. is it like the FSB on AMD ?

The temperature isn't too high, the voltage is.

My 3930k wont do 4.8ghz anymore after 6 months on 1.430v

thats a perfectly fine voltage your just unlucky then

Voltages degrade chips not temps...temps kill them. Also, 2500k's are spec'd to 1.32v and safe to 1.52, according to intel....you know, the makers of the cpu. Many of you are ill-informed. And prime doesn't put unrealistic strain on your cpu, it put worst-case scenario strain on your cpu. If you decide to play crysis one day and your antivirus is running a test, your cpu could possibly get to 100%. If its not completely stable, it will restart or BSOD and because you "finalized" your overclock 2 weeks ago, you have no idea what caused the instability.

WRONG!

The chip will degrade at every voltage you put through it. It will degrade even at 1.2v just not as fast as a vcore on 1.5v

It's just a matter of time.
