I was just speaking with an intel tech over chat. Surprisingly they actually have chat support when I I was just looking around their site. After 20 min of conversing about my set-up, he told me this about the 3570k:
Daniel: any parameter between 0.8 and 1.4 V per core is considered normal and it will keep fluctuating in that range.
You: Thank you very much but may I ask where you drew this information from?
Daniel: our data base sir.
Kinda surprising that I got him to say that. So it's just the low voltage OC that our chips suck at?
wow this is kinda funny. He told me to run the "intel processor diagnostic tool" to make sure its within specifications.
kinda interesting, it's doing its own little stress test and everything...
according to this guy, you're processor is gonna be just fine at 1.53v as long as the temperatures are under control.
:yeah but I still don't know if this thing is gonna burn out at 1.35
: I'm not sure I trust the datasheet
Daniel: yes it supports really high voltages compare to previous ones
: so it seems like as long as temps are under control it's doing fine
Maybe you wanna bump it up a bit more...
