lol - to chase a post by you? For what reason do you post such gibberish? And for comparison sake, I know of a dozen guys who have fried IBEs and HWEs... Oh.. wait, sorry to bother you with facts.
And frankly, who cares if someone degraded cpu - lol, don't ;t need to look to any other site to find that.

That type of stuff will degrade a CPU because the current consumed by the processor does not change by enough with a 200~300MHz frequency reduction - voltage needs to be decreased for a significant change in current.
Intel do not use the AVX offset just to drop the multiplier ratio, they use it to drop Vcore and the mechanism works in conjunction with the offset VID stack. That's how the feature is designed to be used. If one overclocks the system, then AVX offset with an adaptive or manual voltage of 1.35V is only suitable for loads similar or less aggressive than Handbrake, which is far more moderate than Prime.
Lol - you don't have to imagine anything.. folks here are doing it too often. IMO, The key here is whether one brutalizes their CPU with stress tests outta the cretaceous period. So, if I'm not running the ATCT (mostly when benching) my selection of the AVX offset incorporates whether or not the down clock will allow for stability and reasonable temperatures for the short period of time needed.
But no doubt, hammering a 10 core with p95, OCCT or Linux for hours and hours, or even RB for that matter, at high clocks and voltage... well, just leads to more stability testing in a self inflicted injury loop.

Unfortunately, too many folks believe everything they read on the internet. wait.. wut?
