Thanks to youre review i bought the x5660 (160€) and very happy, saved me alot of money instead of the x79 platform!
Edit: its my 3rd overclocking pc so im noobie:p
That's good to hear man. Now you'll have some extra money to put towards other things like SSDs, games, monitors or a more powerful GPU. I don't see these Hexa Cores getting outdated very fast.
Ok I need some opinions. I need to know if you guys think I could potentially damage my CPU by running it with high overclocks and low voltage. My CPU is running at:
4Ghz w/ 1.20vCore
3.8Ghz w/ 1.16vCore
- 1600Mhz[idle for both is 2.4Mhz]
Now this is nothing short of amazing since I'm trying to keep my CPU as cool as possible by using lower voltages for the warmer days ahead of us. Well the weather is all over the place, but some days can get pretty warm. So does anyone think this could be a potential problem for 24/7 use. Both speeds have passed the Standard IntelBurnTest with no issues and I'm running Prime95 right now with no errors.
Thoughts.....opinions.....anyone? I can post a screenshot if anyone needs me too.Edit:
Prime95 100% highest so far is only 53c [room ambient is 23c]Edited by Kana-Maru - 4/17/14 at 7:03pm
