I'm reading this out of Cpuz and OCCT

Does that under-report as well? I did not know this

Any software voltage reading will likely be under reported. I wouldn't go any higher than 1.4V on that board.

Yea I've checked out that thread before..

I'm just saying I don't care if it dies.. WHICH IS UNLIKELY, it was $150, poo, even if it lasts ONLY 3 years with degradation, That's fine with me. thumb.gif

I don't understand people being protective of something that is essentially a consumable.. rolleyes.gif

To me, a cpu is equivalent of a big roll of paper towel, or gasoline rolleyes.gif

My chip cost me over $200, which is a lot more than a roll of towel; I don't really want to break that. I'm not incredibly cautious with it, but I wouldn't run it past 1.45V every day.

But when a motherboard goes it has the potential to take out your entire rig. Much more risk than $150 worth!

I ran 1.5v for 2 years.. with my asus z68, there's been no signs of degradation // overheat, etc...rolleyes.gif

I did say "a big" roll of paper towel..

and you're NOT going to break it.. I've taken my same 1.5v chip i'm currently using to 1.6v before to get 5.2ghz for a week just for fun and guess what, it's A-ok thumb.gif


LETs say you do get degradation, it's a slow process, you'll lose maybe 100 mhz per year, if even.. Lets say over 5 years you lose 400mhz.. now you're back to where you are NOW... 4.6ghz

So what exactly would you lose... NOTHING...


If you continue to use the chip AFTER 5 years, then you're doing yourself a disservice, because IPC improvement is 50% increase over 5 years. thumb.gif

It would last a lot longer than that. Although, 70 degrees will be easy to reach and exceed while stress testing, and you might even see it come close during games. However, the voltage is more important than the temps anyway.

Correct, so all you have to do is lower the voltage to 1.35v to get it to 1.4v, problem solved.

Well that and hope your VRMs dont melt...ever tried touching the motherboard heatsinks on an extreme4? Unusually hot, my gigabyte ones are nowhere near as hot even though im running same volts.
