whats the safe voltage before degregration on 4770k

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi ,
Does anyone know what the safe voltage is 4770k im reading different things on forums. Would 1.291 - 1.310 be damaging.

Cheers

As these things are so new, its extremely hard to tell.

But I would say that 1.375 is a 24/7 sweetspot

Mmmm...."safe" voltages...who knows? It's too early to know..Maybe try looking for those Intel info sheets...

http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/datasheets/4th-gen-core-family-desktop-vol-1-datasheet.pdf

IMO just go for whatever frequency you can get with no more than 1.25v vcore (or even lower), if you are looking for a 24-7 overclock. In my case, I've settled in a 4.3 GHz overclock at 1.18v vcore. Haven't pushed for maximum overclocks, just wanted a very moderate one for daily usage.

Id probably go by temperatures darren, afterall people could say 1.2v is perfectly safe, but you could get like 95C at that volt..which isnt safe.

Anything overclocked is damaging. But those volts with good temps(around 80'C load) is safe for a 4770k imo.

The chip will last you a few years at least with that voltage.
