4.8ghz OC 1.38v offset... do you think this is an okay OC?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm doing offset OC'ing with my i7 3770k.

1.376 - 1.384v for 4.8ghz.

Since its offset its only at that voltage when I'm doing intensive stuff.

I use my PC for about 6-8 hours a day, of which 4-5 hours are for gaming.

How would this affect my CPU lifespan in the long run?

edited the voltage..

I think I'm going to go back to 4.8ghz since I do have the cooling and I can put up with the noise lol.
1.38v (load vcore) for 4.8ghz.

You're fine. You should only really worry about high temps and volts over 1.5v

Your CPU will be fine as long as your temps are in control at that voltage.

I did 12 hours of P95, load temps were between 80-90C (my room is like 26C)

Yeah, that should be fine. Realistically, unless you're folding or something, you won't reach those temperatures. At least not on a regular basis.

The majority of 3570's do. They're just lower binned
