Running ivy bridge @ 1.4v everyday safe?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Now that Ivy has been out for some time what do you guys feel about running 1.4v with ivy bridge for everyday use which includes just gaming and web browsing. I usually use speed step which downclocks when under idle or light load. Would over 1.4 be safe for the same type of usage and what would be your limit?

I would say as long as your temps are fine, I dont see any issues. But 1.4 seem a little bit high, what OC are you running it at? Unless you run 5ghz OC 1.4v and watercooling, I would say 1.4cvore is too much either way.

I can run 4.8 with lowest llc at 1.4v or 4.9 with second highest llc at 1.4-1.416 max.

I never go above 75c while playing BF4 125 frames per second.

Well I run mine at 1.4vcore as well, but vdrop under load is like below 1.4, I have full llc etc. But I have water cooling though, been running for 1.5-2 years like this I think. But if you go 75c playing bf4 that means you must go above 90C doing benchmarks.

Yeah I've stopped using stress testing programs like prime95 due to the crazy heat. I use it to find out my vcore under load and let it run for 10-20 mins. Then I just use it like I normally would and I've been fine. I check for whea errors etc. Yeah if I was to run prime it would probably be 90c. But during bf4 or gaming it hovers in the 50-60s with the occasional jump to 70c.

I dont understand why you run that OC and vcore that comes with it if you dont have watercooling. What cooling do you have.

If you reach 75c while gaming, that seems a little hot.
If you don't use AC in the summer, that's likely to rise up quite high with the ambient temperatures getting warmer. Just keep monitoring it.

I sometimes see 75c when gaming on my 2600K @ 1.28, but it's usually quite a bit lower.
Since the workload shifts from core to core, temps even out to well below 65 in most cases.

These are my stress test temperatures with my 2600K, at stock and overclocked. Using the stock cooler.
Stock - 3.4GHz - Turbo off - 1.2V
Overclocked - 4.0GHz Turbo off - 1.28V

Those are my temps with hyper 212 evo and coolermaster haf 932 case. In the summer I won't probably run that overclock.

Ivy bridge chips can take a lot of voltage before degrading. 1.4v is fine for an everyday overclock.
