Can I run Sandy Bridge w/1.425v 24/7?

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
It seems that to get 5.0Ghz stable on most batches takes 1.4-1.425v.

I've been running my Q6600 w/1.6v 24/7 for three years. So, I'm not aversed to over-volting.

Also, this build is temporary - just waiting for socket 2011.

So, anyone think it will explode after a month?

What could you possibly need your 2600k running at 5GHz 24/7 for??? I mean for benching... ok... but all the time? Even at stock this thing is insane.

If it's a temp system, it doesn't seem too smart to risk it.

Above 1.35 is considered too high for SB. Over 1.4 and you will be a very short life.

Though I don't think it will explode, I do think it's not worth the risk. The difference in performance between 4.5ghz(4.7/4.8) and 5ghz just doesn't feel large enough to risk damaging a chip.

Based on what proof? No offense but you sound like another disgruntled Bloomfield owners who won't hesitate to spew misinformation about a product that they don't own.

Even if you run it over VID you're still going to get years out of your processor provided you have adequate cooling.

Besides, the maximum VID for SB is 1.52 if Intel's very own white paper has any credit.

I will say its fine to run it at 1.425v if you have good cooling and keep temperatures ~60 degrees or less.

What temps are you getting? If temps are low a little bit of extra juice isn't that big a deal.

1.425v for good water cooling should be no problem.

Oh wow! You're like a knight in shining armor. So rarely does someone have such an effect over me. I almost want to 'friend' you.. Argh! Must resist the meaningless online gesture..!

Yeah, I don't think I'm going to get 60C, though.

See, it just doesn't seem worth it to buy an entire watercooling build (it has to be good else it's not worth it down the line), for say 16C less 24/7.

So the question is - 1.425v @ 76C 24/7.. will it last until 2012?

That's frankly all I care about.

Then I could either blow it up or downclock it to 4.5Ghz and keep it as a permanent HTPC/Folding machine.

Well.. what do you consider 'good'?

I mean I could get an H70.. or just keep my TRUE.

Man I've been gone for so long.. is the TRUE still the best air cooler?

Get a rasa kit if anything, H50 and H70 are both terrible.
