Yeah I do.
I don't know if it benefits from 8 cores/threads but it ran better on the 4 cores of my Phenom II X4 B55, I'm not sure how it would do with 3 cores.

That means for haswell you can be "relatively very safe" up to 1.3v core, "safe...ish" up to 1.35v (degradation has been reported), then at 1.4v and up you start getting very risky.

If you don't care about money, I'd say go up to 1.4v or 1.45v. If you must keep it alive, 1.3v or 1.35v. If must not even degrade it for 1-2 years at least, maybe up to 1.3v.


I don't think saying things like 1-2 years 3-4 years is reasonable..

the CPU spends 90% of its life @ 800mhz clocked down @ 0.8v


I highly doubt even using 1.35v to 1.4v for the short bursts of gaming will make a difference if your usage scenario is typical..

Here's a short Just Cause 2 multiplayer flying car video, just for fun.
I'm transcoding a Battlefield 3 MP gameplay video at the moment and uploading another JC2 MP video.

It has an alleviation but don't be too lenient. e.g. LN2 overclocking has very low loads but it may kill CPUs within 24 hours. And modest loading will be giving bursts of max voltage once in a while in gaming.

Just Cause 2 multiplayer footage up now, there were 90 players on the server at the time of joining, and couple of them gathered at the airport.

Battlefield 3 should be done in about an hour or so, after that I'll be uploading some more Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag gameplay, but this time at sea.
And I'll see how Natural Selection 2 performs.

The Battlefield 3 MP video should be finished uploading and processing in 10 minutes time hopefully, I'm currently onto Dolphin Emulation and plan to do some gameplay of Metroid Prime, and possibly Wind Waker... If I can find the disc. rolleyes.gif
