My chip gets 4.4 GHZ at 1.375.
Tell me mine is awful.

Jerk move to do, but you may end up with a better, or worse chip.

I bought mine from Amazon.. Well out of its 30 day exchange/refund policy.

Wonder if Intel actually tests the CPU when you send it in.. Or if they throw it in the "RMA Room"..
Just saying I could technically tell them it doesn't work properly..
But again, that is immoral.. :/

Just buy the Tuning Plan for $20 and OC the crap out of it til it dies and get a new one. I think you can only do it once though so cross your fingers the new one is better. You could also sell it for a bit of a loss and then buy a new one...

Well, if I were you I'd get over it, no offence.

My 2600k does 4.4 GHz at 1.32V, and hits a brick wall there. I'm thinking it'll need well over 1.4V for 4.6 GHz, Prime95 crashes instantly with 1.35V for 4.5 GHz, which means it'll probably need a lot more voltage. Now it's in a dedicated folding machine cranking out a nice number of PPD.

I just got a 3570k as well though that can do 4.5 GHz with 1.2V, which is a decent chip, temps do get a bit high (around 70-75C for this OC on a H212).

I'd really like to push the 3570k to 5 GHz in the winter though, and put the PC outside on a cold day, so the temps stay down and I don't need to delid it to get cooler temperatures.

Try using lower voltage, too much can cause instability. Also, what is your RAM speed? That can have an effect. I have 4.5Ghz at 1.23 V with DDR3-2400 RAM.

1600MHz Ripjaws.

I have tried even using the same voltage as 4.2 which is 1.3v.
I have also tried getting it stable, then backing the voltage down, but half the time I cant boot at all when the voltage is too low.. It will stick at the bios screen.

And that is what I envy.. Being able to even THINK about 5GHz.. I dont think I can even get NEAR that.. 4.6 is unattainable at 1.45v

But in all honesty a high OC isn't very useful, unless you bench a lot, or really need to lengthen your epeen. In normal situations, you won't really notice a difference between 4.5 GHz and 5 GHz.

I am planning on watercooling my PC at some point. The extra mhz would help as well as I render a bit of video.
I also run this thing pretty hard.

Double posting a bit, but anyways, I dont even know how to OC a chip to death.. Unless I just get it nice and toasty without a heatsink or cooler on it at all. rolleyes.gif
