Is it possible to degrade the performance/life of the chip this way even if I am in within acceptable temp ranges? On a side note I don't plan to have it for more then 1.5 years so oh well if it does tongue.gif

As long as you don't have it cranked up too high, it should be fine, but yeah, that's the general thought process.  Less voltage to the chip when idle should equate to longer life span.

I believe this chip will throttle down if to warm, doesn't it have that internal protection?
Sandy did.

Yes, all modern CPUs should, but that doesn't mean you can't degrade a chip.  I've seen several guys degrade SBs within 6 months.

Yes to much voltage & heat will

I was reading Samsung "miracle" ram was having problems on the MPOWER board, How's it overclocking for you?

That is decent ram. I had a set but it didn't over clock very well. Gskill revised that kit and I bought it. This is the kit that I have....

They costs more but are much better for over clocking.

For the money the cheapy Samsungs are really impossible to beat and when I first got my Mpower MB they didn't over clock well but the Mpower 17.5 BIOS has them working great for me.

The 3dMark11 benchmark I posted above was done with the cheapy Sammy sticks over clocked. Got them for $34.99.... Really a great buy.

With Mpower Z77 you have RAM choices! thumb.gif

Good progress and info SonDa5. I was wondering how these sticks handle heat without any heat sinks? Any problems noted from that when OC'ing them?

You can start to degrade chips with anything over 1.4 from what I've seen, 1.5+ will definitely degrade your CPU over time.  A fair number of the guys in the FAH section have degrade a 2600k, or two running them at 1.45-1.55v for months on end at 100% usage.  What I'm referring to when I say degrade would be requiring more voltage for the same clocks to maintain stability.

I wouldn't pound mine up to 1.40 even...... BUT that is just me..whats the point to say it does a zillion hertz?

What somebody else does however is their business

If you really check it out an overclock doesn't give that huge a benefit in actual reality

A bit but nothing really huge..for anything i do and have noticed but I only play with the systems and see what they can do
But i don't game either.
I just play with systems.

You might as well just buy a larger chip in the 1st place and run it stock .......by the time one figures the cpu cooler and combo $$ add ons

But of course it is fun to see what they will do.

Could anyone comment on the wifi strength and speed for this board? What are the max speeds you guys are getting, especially if you have fast cable/fiber connections? Is the wifi dual band?
