Unless you are keeping for 10+ years, you shouldn't be worried about that at all since it's going to become outdated before it dies.
I would assume that running a cPU at 1.4V constantly would probably reduce the lifetime. I remember one guy having run his Sandy bridge CPU at 1..408 under 24/7 load for 7 months and having it degrade to the point where he needed 1.45 volts to maintain that overclock.

Ultra durable is not gimmick. Gigabyte's marketing is one of the few that actually makes sense. It is a way to summarize all different stuff that Gigabyte has on their boards. If one happen to know what Ultra Durable means, it basically tells you 60% of stuff that particular Gigabyte board has. Not that boards of the other manufacturers don't use the same stuff, but there is no easy way to find it out.
I just meant that ultra durable sounds like a buzz word, same with 3D power. It's just a way of listing a few of their specs.

Well 1.4+ is kind of on dangerous side for long run anyway lol. If that's your typical usage case, then yes you better use offset. I hear anything above 1.38v is dangerous for SB.

Yea there is always something that sounds too suspicious. That's marketing and it's up to us to figure out whether it's useful or not. With 3D power then mean digital power delivery for CPU, RAM, and VTT. Also iGPU in case of LGA1155.

I mean unlike Asus or MSI that mark stuff like Militarily tested (remember TUF's military tested mosfets? They use same stuff on P8Z77-V boards), Gigabyte so far listed real things, and they actually list their components (lower RDS mosfets or IR3550s).

They are all companies that need to promote their stuff, but at the same time I don't approve when they deceive their customers. Unlike Gigabyte's different levels of Ultra Durable, MSI's "Military Class III" is not consistent. MSI uses low quality mosfets on their low-end board which are still part of that marketing. Or ASRock that lies about digital VRM on most of their Z77 boards.

I wish everybody used fair techniques, but that's never going to happen...

I don't think there is an actual point at which it is no longer going to degrade the CPU. If you are running an offset and have it well cooled at above 1.4 volts, you probably won't see much degradation within a few years, unless you use your CPU very heavily.

They have things listed like "3x more ESD resistance ICs" except with nothing listed to compare them to. They have a ton of features that may actually provide no benefit whatsoever to the boards.

I like to look at the graphs they use to demonstrate how awesome their stuff is. They have bar graphs that could be summarized in the sentence "our product is better than theirs to a degree that we will not list". A lot of the things they list may not make a significant difference in actual usage, such as their special glass fibre PCB.

The power designs vary on almost every board. I just think we shouldn't make a big deal of all of this flashy useless marketing, just like all of these flashy BIOS designs.

Yes there isn't actual point. Intel specs give 1.52v, but I see many people recommending to stay under 1.4v. Whether it's based on some stats, or personal experience I don't know. In my case, my chips just gets too hot.

For the rest, it's marketing smile.gif, take a note of useful stuff, and ignore the rest.

Unless you are keeping for 10+ years, you shouldn't be worried about that at all since it's going to become outdated before it dies.

I think that's true, but I also think that using fixed voltage is many times more damaging than offset voltage. I'd rather run 1.6v, some high temps on load, with offset voltage, where maybe 1% of the day it even reaches full 100% load and 90% of the day even on heavy usage it's on idle/low load, then run a fixed high voltage and frequency where 100% of the time you are on max frequency and voltage, as even higher frequency of same voltage is more power draw, same with heat (same voltage and frequency but higher heat is more power draw).

I know it's all a bit vague, as we don't know what these chips will last and all, and they will last a long time anyways, but I'd rather push a ridiculous amount of voltage and some extreme overclock, and have offset voltage - more performance, and I'm pretty sure it's less damaging than running a conservative overclock on fixed voltage.

SB and IB are totally different though. Reports of 24/7 1.65vcore with no degration over a year+ of use. I plan to run 1.5-1.6v. Haven't delidded yet but my temps are under 90*C on p95 on my nh-d14 when under 1.55v.

Their P67 and Z68 boards used high quality components. They suffered from issues due to bad overall board design/firmware, but components that they used were good. Same with their X79 boards. They use the same components as Z77 boards, but they have lots of issues, but unlike P67/Z68 they seem to be working on fixing them.

Words themself tell you nothing, but what they describe using those words do. As I mentioned before most of the stuff that is covered under Ultra durable brand is something that other manufacturers use, but they don't have such consistent branding like UD.

I wouldn't go significantly over 1.4 for day to day, but even then, I'd only do it if I was running an offset. For benching, you can do whatever your cooling can handle, just do it with easytune or something and revert the voltage when you're done.

Currently, I don't like to run too high above 1.3V because my cooler is terrible.

What I read from sin was that they used low quality mosfets and moved to higher quality mosfets on z77, besides the firmware and design issues. It was said to contrast what asrock did, where they used fairly good VRMs on the extreme4 p67/z68, but their extreme4 z77 (and lower boards) have worse VRMs than their p67/z68 counterparts.

A good cooler is such good value. Given that I'm hitting only 90*C+ on 1.55v and higher, and only in p95, I'm perfectly comfortable running basically 1.55v using offset for 24/7 overclocks. and ill be delidding.

People think that like a hyper 212 or whatever is a good value, it'll give just as much overclock, get the job done, etc, but it's really a limiting cooler.

Ultradurable 4(UD3H/UD5H):

  • 2X the amount of copper of a traditional motherboard makes for efficient heat dissipation, reduced PCB impedance by 50% for decreased electrical waste, improved signal quality and lower EMI for better system stability
  • New Glass Fabric PCB uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave for better humidity protection
  • High ESD Resistance ICs features up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs to better protect the motherboard.
  • Dual BIOS
  • Special anti-surge ICs protect motherboard from any power surge
  • All solid capacitors and lower RDS (on) MOSFETs

Ultradurable 5(UP4TH/5TH)
  • Everything Ultradurable 4
  • IR3550 PowIRstage ICs from International Rectifier
  • high current Ferrite Core Chokes rated up to 60A

Now we have Military class III:
Quote:
MSI mainboards maintains the commitment to product stability and reliability by introducing Military Class III components! In addition to the use of Hi-c CAP, SFC, and Solid CAP, MSI now incorporates DrMOS II, the next-generation DrMOS that provides an integrated Double Thermal Protection to maximize the lifespan of components. All Military Class III components have passed MIL-STD-810G certification, making MSI's Military Class III components synonymous with premium quality and ultimate stability.

Seems like Gigabyte's description is a lot less vague.

Ultradurable is marketing, but it means business too.

Your chip isn't going to last very long. I wouldn't push 1.52 volts for more than a few minutes, personally, and I certainly would not run anything as stressful as prime 95 on 1.55V, let alone a 12 hour run.

People think that like a hyper 212 or whatever is a good value, it'll give just as much overclock, get the job done, etc, but it's really a limiting cooler.
Yeah I know that, I have a Xigmatek Dark Knight II. It's decent, but I'd like a lot more.

That means nothing to me. How many boards use these traditional ICs? I never know whether to take this kind of thing seriously.

Also, MSIs marketing lists the types of capacitors and the type of MOSFETs that they are using, as well.
