Did I Just Win the Silicon Lottery???

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello every one and thank you for taking the time to read this! I recently pushed my 6700k to 4.8ghz at 1.37 volts with an average temp reading of 50-55°C. I ran Aida64 System stability (cpu only) for roughly 15 minutes and these were the results. I ran it for another 2 hours with the exact same results. Also im using a corsair H115i all in one cooler.



Also I noticed that in CPU-Z it says the voltage is 1.308v. In the bios it says 1.37. What's that about?

Anyways i will run the test again for around 8 hours and if its stable im gonna try to go to 4.9.

Thanks guys!!

EDIT: Also just as a side note i have my h115i set to balance mode and the fans never go over 900 rpm.

You might have. Seems like a solid OC. However, Aida64 is not a very good benchmark, so I would definitely take it with a grain of salt until you have tested it further.

What benchmark should i run? IntelBurnTest?

Just curious why you need such an aggresive overclock?

lol aida is not a good indication of anything.
ibt is very heavy, but still, I had 3570k at 4.5GHz back in the day, could pass 10 runs of IBT Extreme 10 times in a row, would freeze 5 minutes into Dying LIght.

24hrs of custom p95 or simply game stable. that's all I got to say.

I will open up a game in my steam and see if it can hang. And some other tests. And to answer the question of why so aggressive, because im curious how far i can push it. Just because lol.

I am curious that someone might ask such a question on an overclocking site tongue.gif

This is not aggressive. Skylake can take a lot more voltage than other CPU architectures, people are running 1.4 and 1.45v 24/7 with good temperatures and no degradation. Have a look on the Skylake overclocking guide with statistics thread for more info.

As for better benchmarks, I would suggest the x264 benchmark that you can find in the same thread, under the Stress Testing tag. Run it with 8 threads for as long as you can. To be absolutely certain of stability, I would leave it running for about 8 hours, just hit enter when it asks for you to specify the amount of loops and it should just go indefinitely.

It is a non-synthetic benchmark that does one of the most intensive things the average user might use their CPU for, encoding video. As such, if you're stable in that, you'll be stable in pretty much everything else.

for genral use,computing - i dare say if it passes a lenghty time with aida, it will be ok for normal use - some go over the top with burn tests

more heat prob with gpu card more likely - have yet a game to be the problem with an oc that passed a stress test, other varibles come into play. prime 24hrs, dah! waste of time biggrin.gif

Also i just checked CPU-Z and it is showing a consistent core voltage of 1.356. The picture i uploaded earlier was from when i overclocked 2 days ago. It was showing 1.308 so the vdroop was .062 which is quite a bit. But now the vdroop is only .014 did the cpu just need to "adjust" to the overclock?
