Guide to Overclocking the Core I7 920 or 930 to 4.0ghz - Page 148

post #1471 of 1472
My dad asked me to overclock his old 920. Currently stopped at 3.95 at 1.245 volts. Will wait a few weeks for the weather to warm up and see what the temps will be to decide if I have a bit of room to go 4.1 or not.
Something that is bothering me is the LLC. I've searched the net but haven't found a definitive answer to whether it can hurt the CPU or not with the voltage spikes. I would prefer to not damage it and let it live at least a few years more. Any advice?
Without LLC I would have to bump the voltage up to 1.3, and with the voltage not downscaling on idle I would prefer to not have it sit always at 1.3.

I've had LLC enabled on my i7 920 @ 3.8-4.0 GHz 24/7 since 2009. Use this PC for 3D games and compiling stuff pretty regularly. Just my two cents.
