MY i7 2600k... requires too much vcore.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
2600k I bought a month ago, using 1.320 V to run at 4.0 ghz OC...is my chip in a bad situation? Should I return it?
post #2 of 35

Is 1.320V the voltage you are seeing in CPU-Z while the CPU is under full load?

If it is stable at stock, you cannot return it on ground that the chip is faulty, because it is not. If you supplier offers a return policy, you could of course try that.

However, I agree with TwoCables that we have in no way enough information whether 1.32v is high for that overclock. For all we know you could have set the voltage to auto.....

If you wanted a proven overclocking chip. You should have bought one that someone binned. Sell it in the forums and go buy another one. As nothing is wrong with the cpu. Me and everyone else in here wished we could get a great overclocking chip with low voltage. You either have to buy a good many and test them one by one, buy one that someone else binned. Or just hope you get lucky on a purchase.

When people return stuff because it doesn't overclock like their friends does. It makes it very hard for other end users to take a product back that does have a issue. Thanks

not sure about that mobo but i know that your cpu cooler might not handle an i7 pretty well. maybe turn off HT, then oc.

I did drop the intel heatsink on it, by accident, while it was already locked in, that and it was running 90s for 10 minutes or so. However, I don't think those minor incidents would have an affect on this vcore, most likely just got a mediocre chip.

Sometimes it is the luck of the draw with the chip. Check the link to the overclocking thread.
