Sorry, I pop in and out of this thread very spontaneously and keeping track of 400 pages is nigh impossible. Still I randomly chose this page so hoorah? Lol anyhow I'm not sure if you ask out of disappointment or enthusiasm but my VIN is 2.1, kept getting instability with a worker crashing at 2.0 and didn't realize it was my FIVR till after adding quite a bit of voltage to my core and cache. I'm sure I'll be able to tweak it down a few tenths but for now 2.1 is def enough and 2.0 is def not.
To reiterate 4.7/4.7 at 1.43core 1.45ring 2.1vrin and .3 to sa/ia/io cause I'm running my 1866 at 2200 with tight timings. (I know I need faster ram)
I actually consider this chip to be a bit better than average, yet u would think it was garbage if you take to heart all the impulse "I'm stable" posts and the degree of scrutiny some people apply (or rather don't) to what they believe is stable.
FTR I have had this PC a few months now and have YET to play a game due to hours upon hours upon hours seeking a 24 hr run of prime95 blend. I was misled on what people were labeling "average vcore for xxxx speed" and when I would surpass that by a great deal, I would look elsewhere and never got stable before I realized it needed even more.
I am now stable in IBT on max. In hyper PI (great for ram). And In prime for 23 hours and change (I'm done! Lol) I have had so many 10-14 hour runs where it finally blue screened I want to shoot myself. My friends are all max level and some in ffxiv (which I built this PC for) and I have yet to start. Now THAT is two things, OCD is one of them.. Stable is the other
There was a fair amount of initial degredation which didn't help either. Still I always knew power and temp were never the issue. Took me a long time to come to the conclusions I have but I'm beyond confident they're very very sound.
FWIW I can pass IBT and hyper PI at nearly the same voltage at x48 but so far at 1.525v it was still failing prime blend. I know I wanted a 24/7 OC and I knew that I wasn't comfy running what could have amounted to 1.55 24/7 so as much as I wanted 4800mhz I had to call it.
So for those calling their 4800 @ 1.25 overclocks stable cause u can play games and take a SS or pass Aida or such, let me know when u pass prime for 24hr. Then I'll agree
