no degradation for us caused by high temps ..lol
and 4.7ghz with 1.320V vcore daily oc aint that bad, think i could even run it 4.8ghz with 1.420V vcore long time,
but theres to many conflicting opinions out there, and no real data yet about degradation,
ivy is more resilliant then sandy, "they say" ..
not on air you dont ...lol, what would you need, at least 1.9V vcore?
LOL, feel free to sign up on EVGA forums, I'll let you know if such a thread ever gets started
trying to get a hold of a few fellow members, but that EVGA Z77 section is pretty much dead nowadays ... most of folks I know who owned Z77 FTW migrated to ASUS ROG LOL! only a few left, but those are "loyalists"
.. however even them are not posting anything anymore ... silence before the storm? ... or rather that section is currently within the eye of a hurricane
... time will tell ...
hey, I'm running that 5GHz daily with 1.56V vcore and it holds so far after 3 days, re-tested stability today (ambient temps dropped) and it looks good, no WHEA coming back so far, wondering for how long haha ...
Tonight I might try booting up to 5.3GHz without my super secret AC/CAI cooling "mod", just to see if I can, won't stress test it though ... only for kicks, and CPU-Z validation ... and maybe SuperPI run if possible
