This is delidded...
nice, how are the temps, you got a nice chip
if mine wasn't walled at 4.7 id run the high voltage because it benefits me on my 24/7 use, however at 1.495 with whea errors i dont think id accept a 1.510+ for 4.7ghz oc
the 4.6ghz was i beleive around 1.43 or 1.45,cant remember but its saved in bios. all in all after my 4.5ghz gained 0.010vcore i've never clocked it higher since

I don't think you would want to go higher on vcore for ivy as (there's diminishing returns for vcore or something i forgot) . If you really want it you can try stabilise it at 4.7ghz as it already requires 1.495v. You could go for 4.6ghz first but up to you, some people just want to see 5ghz no matter the consequences (as I was).
1.495v for 4.7ghz is a very bad chip but revise your OC as there is a chance that you've overvolted it.
I would go back to the vcore that boots into windows then go from there. Then try and crash it with program's you use e.g games whatever etc. check for whea errors in event viewer and fix them.
The reason I suspect you've overvolted it is because I used to make this mistake. Sometimes it's other things in your computer is the problem but happens to appear when you OC (just my thought), then you thought it's your CPU is the problem and cranked up vcore which causes even more problems.
(I flashed my GPU then forgot to flash back to the working bios. Gave me a day full of headache =P )
thanks for trying to help but after your rants in this thread i can't take your advice seriously
my Overclocks are done properly, i have some droop, no spikes, and my chip isnt overvolted. i'll sit here and bump 0.005 vcore untill whea errors disapear and i do a variety of QUICK stress tests before i run prime for 12-24+hours
(dont think i could overvolt it when i increase 0.005 from a range of 1.35 to 1.495
could be my ram overclock, but i can't see myself running at 800mhz
maybe ill have to drop the ram OC and see if i can drop vcore a substantial amount. guess ill take a crack at it in the near future. maybe my chips done "breaking itself in"
while my rig can handle the temps, im not sure the chips lifespan can handle the volts. its 24/7 use and 80%ram 80%cpu daily minimum, so its like im permanently benchmarking/stressing the cpuEdited by INCREDIBLEHULK - 5/19/13 at 10:33am
