Will do a 12 hour Prime run later. Would 1.512 be ok for 24/7 . I don't play benches so my max OC should be for 24/7 imho
if you want to play it safe, try stay under 1.5V vcore,
taking in account vcore fluctuation's etc
we have no real proof yet about max vcore, (dont think were gonna find a clear answer also ..lol)
only the 1.52V SVID thats in the datasheets from intel,
what do you need if you run 5.0ghz, vcore wise?

I will likely just use the Kuhler from my CPU. If you don't remember I lost pretty bad in the silicon lottery. Even after delidding I decided to just stay at 4.5GHz because it already takes 1.4v, 4.6GHz takes about 1.475v. Anyway at 1.4v my max temp is in the lows 60s. I might just get a $30-$40 air cooler and still be at comfortable temps. Then use this Antec Kuhler on my GPU and get rid of this vacuum cleaner cooler.
if you can fit the antec cooler on the 7970, problem solved right,
any good aircooler is enough for a delidded ivy..Edited by VonDutch - 12/22/12 at 6:01am
