Intel E8400 - Ultimate OC! - Page 4

Well people need to be clear about what they are saying. Earlier in the post a few posters were saying that overvolting has no affect on your CPU, and that people should just ignore the max voltage and worry only about their temps.
I clock for temps..I care less about vcore required. I have run several 65nm CPU's above 1.6vcore on water now for more than a few years..with no ill effects.. they actually fold daily. People said the same back then " Oh noes..your vcore is too high..warning..danger!! Its over the 1.5v Intel speck..! "

Blah, blah, blah..is all I hear.

I say 'The proof is in the pudding' ...and to date the "pudding" is made of highly OC'd CPU's, 45nm and 65nm alike..all with vcores in the 'danger omg' range...running fine..and fast. I stand behind my statements, because that is what my experience with CPU's has shown me. Keep it cool..and give it as much juice as it needs to be stable at that speed.

.. yeah, I am running an E7400 @ 4ghz with 1.44vcore..a Q6600 @ 1.61vcore for daily use.. no worries man.

Guys, you can clock your hardware with whatever voltage you desire. This has become completely off-topic, so this will probably be my last post on the subject.

This came up because someone told the poster not to go over 1.3625. gurusan asked where that poster got that number, and someone else followed up and asked if it was some kind of rumor.

All I have said this entire post is that there is a max voltage posted by Intel for a reason, and that going above this voltage could, and probably would cause eventual damage to your CPU.

The advice to keep your voltage below 1.3625 is widely accepted as sound on these forums, and people will continue to give it to people that may not be as experienced as you guys appear to be.

See! that's the spirit when overclocking, if you wanna be carefull just stay at stock damnit ;-)

Yeah except that Gurusan was correct in that the Intel docs show absolute max voltage at 1.45 while the 1.3625 everyone talks about does seem to be the VID range on 45nm processor finder sheets.

In that case the 1.3625 will be pretty meaningless in regards to whats safe to run the CPU at.

Exactly.

To put it in a little more perspective. Intel specs the Q6600 max VID as 1.5V, but the max voltage as 1.55V. We all know perfectly well that 1.55V with decent cooling will not even begin to damage a q6600 for at least a few years.

I accidentally set my Vcore to 1.57v yesterday for a few hours! I was supposed to be setting the PLL to 1.57v. I wonder if it took off 2 or 3 years of it's lifespan?

I have been running my E8400 (first batch) for over a year on 1.40v or above and it still can OC like mad! If and when it goes it will get replaced with a newer better chip but, it's my guess that I will replace it long before that happens.

Come on guys we are on a Over Clocking web site? We don't play it safe!
