hmm maybe i will just stick with 1.26v @ 4.5.. lol hopefully it wont crash completely lol.
hmm any other suggestions..
dang..like i said, cant imagine a new bios would help with lowering vcore,
but was worth a shot, seen stranger things happen on this forum..lol
maybe others here have another idea,
didnt come across a degrading ivy yet so,
looks to me it is what it is ..yea, back of to 4.5ghz for now, keep us posted
if you need more vcore in a while for that one too,
wonder what intels warranty says about degrading chip within 3 years,
even when its oced..do you have a Performance Tuning Protection Plan?
The Performance Tuning Protection Plan being offered by Intel is a chance for you to experiment with the overclocking features of your processor without the worries of what will happen if you push the procesor too far. The Plan allows you a single processor replacement, hassle-free, from our customer support. This is in addtion to your standard 3 year warranty. In other words, if it fails under normal usage, we will replace it under the standard warranty; if it fails while running outside of Intel's specifications, we will replace it under the Performance Tuning Protection Plan.
looks to me it is failing, but not sure if your problem will fall under the normal warranty, it should if you ask me ..but im not the boss over there ...lolEdited by VonDutch - 2/5/13 at 8:18am
