Sorry, Undervolter. The guy is
delusional. Back during the Core 2 Duo days, I was a lot like him, pushing insane voltages on my E4500 (I had a particularly bad overclocker) with my own perception of what the safety threshold was.
While it is interesting to see how well AMD chips take a beating, and while it's nice to finally have someone with the guts to do so, he has an extremely wrong
concept of overclocking.
If everything was as simple as turning on the computer, pushing any random (insane) voltage in the BIOS and stressing the CPU, more than half this forum wouldn't exist.
He is still so young! Give him 10 years and he may become an expert in extreme overclocking!
I m sure that after several posts in this thread he has understood that he isn't overclocking in any "known" way. So he wants to push the limits? Well, let him! With time, the novelty will wear out and he will become a very good, conventional overclocker. The best extreme overclocker, is the one that has pushed and passed the limits. Ask Johan here how many "accidents" he has had!
.............Unless you were being sarcastic
I find the whole story entertaining, we 're at page 14 and people still hope to make him change his ways. Well, apparently he doesn't want to! So, what am i supposed to do, kill him? He is young, if he doesn't mind buying new CPUs, let him do his thing, it seems he is enjoying it, so why shouldn't i too? Surely the forum is less boring with him here.
And well, there was
