it is true tho, that the max VID is considered
to be the max vcore you should run a cpu 24/7, if temps permit of course
but i wouldnt let my ivy run 1.52V vcore 24/7, i think the 1.3-1.45V max vcore range is safer for daily or 24/7 usage,
upto the user really, what he thinks is the highest vcore he can run his chip..
im thinking about this remark a ocn member made a while ago, when we talked about the max vcore for ivy,
"I know for prior generations, the maximum allowable VID from the factory was considered
the maximum voltage for the processor. Not that that max VID was ever really spotted in the wild
for consumer usage. LGA775 was max of 1.45V VID, and that was widely considered the maximum you
should operate in a 24/7 environment, and that is obviously temperature permitting."
but no, intel doesnt state anywhere the max vcore for ivy,
i tried several times to get a answer from them, spend weeks to find the answer, no go,
last mail i got from them, where i asked about the max vcore when ocing my 3770K,

after that all, i decided to let it rest, safe vcore for me is what i said above Edited by VonDutch - 1/23/13 at 3:55am
