Build:
Case: Corsair 750D
CPU: i7 6850K currently OC to 4.4 at 1.36 Vcore
Cooling: Corsair H115i Extreme 280mm Top mounted with push/pull configuration
Mobo: MSI x99a Gaming 7
Ram: 64GB DDR4 Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000 8x8GB w/ Dominator Plat Cooling Fans
GPU: EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTW+ 2.0
PSU: EVGA Nova Gold 1000 G2
SSD: Samsung Evo 850 1TB for Op System and programs
Internal Storage: 2x 6TB WD Black, 2x 6TB WD Green, 1 2TB WD Black

First and foremost I want to say thank you for all your helpful information I have found here.

My question/dilemma that I haven't been able to find out is in reference to the acceptable voltages for OC this board and for the 6850K Broadwell-e chip. I know intel recommends staying below 1.35 Vcore but I have seen on the couple of review sites for this chip so far use more than that. I know it is a new chip so information is limited but I just want to know if my 1.36 Vcore in Adaptive mode is too much? I have more than adequate cooling. In a hot summer NYC apt During 12+ Hours of Prime95 my Cpu temp never goes above 70c same with Intel burn test, Occt, Rog, Aida64, etc. I also purchased the Intel over clocking warranty from Intel. Any info you guys could share would be greatly appreciated.

As @nexxusty said 1.36v vcore is no problem, but you need to watch the core temps, not the cpu temp so much. Core temps tend to be noticeably higher than the cpu temp. At cpu temps of 70 chances are some of your cores are over 80.

Thanks for your posts, DJgar and Jpmboy.

Seems the real upgrade is 6950x, coming from a good 5960x.

Dont like limited overclocking in 6950x (4.4) and high temperatures, but will probably purchase it... I expected more from 6900k...

Jpmboy, have you tried to disable some cores to reach higher frequencies???

Hi,

any luck with HCI?

Whats the goto software for testing memory??

I use realbench for stressing the CPU but not sure for memory.

Its testing now.

I left it in the night and had 2 errors in one instance over 100% coverage, tweaked down some timmings with same results in bandwidth and now I am reaching 200% with no errors. I will stop in 200% (just to add to the list) cos I need the machine...

Dont be skeptical smile.gif

It's ok to be sceptical sometimes, especially when it turns out to be warranted.

Dont be, vmanuelgm here... smile.gif







No congrats, Scone??? rolleyes.gif

Strap 125 3333 is a hard one, 3200+ on strap 100 is a lot easier...

3333 is harder, you are right. As you have evidently discovered within the last few hours of poking me to give you a comparative to work from. Which would have been pointless, as the memory settings you were using were not stable, and I am using a different board. If you would like a pat on the back though, that is chargeable.
