not sure how his rear end looks ..but hes got some good info in that thread,
maybe you can pm him and ask?
i only use what i come across most, like, if 9 of 10 peeps say the same thing,
and i can find any other info that confirms it, im using it to help others,
i had the same "conflict" with others, about anandtech not being honest, toms hardware etc etc, they all seem to lie all the time,
with their graphics, reviews and what more, i figure , somewhere in all that theres some truth,
i do care about what others experience, or know about any subject..and use it if i think its true
so, the 1.52V is something ive heard alot of times, here and elsewhere..
will look into it tho, i know VID isnt vcore, would be something if its like you say,
" Under load that 1.52v VID is probably closer to 1.4v. "
then putting 1.6V on it, would be about 1.5V ...lol
just copied this too,
"On Air/Water: Intel Rec. Max is Intel’s absolute maximum rating for the Ivy Bridge lineup, many of the numbers provided are identical to those of Sandy Bridge, however while vcore should be lower because of a better processing technology (22nm vs 32nm) it is max 1.52v here because of the SVID max."
well, im contacting intel atm, and will ask them about the max voltage ok
i hate chat ..lol, had to wait long time for him to search through all the papers,
i think i will just copy/past the convo in here ....
Please wait for a site operator to respond.
You are now chatting with 'Fred'
Fred: Hello. Thank you for using the Intel Customer Chat Support service. We are glad to be of service. How may I help you?
: i have bought a 3770k in may, im a member of a OC forum..
: now someone debates with my the max vcore voltage is not 1.52V vcore ..
: i thought it was the max voltage intel recommended?
: i just want to make sure, so that i dont give wrong answers to questions
: but cant find any conclusive answers online, or on your site
: can you help?
Fred: let me check that information
Fred: Please wait for 2-4 minutes and I will check your concern. Thank you.
: cool thanks
Fred: I need more time to research on this issue. Is it ok if I get back to you in 5 minutes?
: np, i leave this chatbox open ..thanks again
Fred: I found those two documents with technical information about the processor but I am trying find the exact information
Fred: I am still checking
: will read it too ..maybe i can find it faster ..lol
: appreciate your effort..
Fred: I think I found it on the second link on page 84, under 7.10.1 Voltage and Current Specifications
: figure 1-2 ? ..o ..ok..
Fred: Table 7-4.
: im looking at it now..
Fred: I do not think this is specified by core
Fred: Each processor is programmed with a maximum valid voltage identification value (VID), which is set at manufacturing and cannot be altered.
: well, it does say 1.52V
: maxFred: 1.5200 maximum and 0.2500 minimum
: im not that technical, all i know is intel stated 1.52V vcore maximum for the 3770K
: well, thanks alot for your help/search ..think i have my answer ...
Fred: the information I can provide is the one that is on those PDF files. you can contact a Field Application Engineer (FAE) so; he/she can give you more information. you can contact a FAE through one of our Authorized Distributors using the following link
: cool, thanks
Fred: you are welcome
