Intel's response to Sandy Bridge Voltage

post #1 of 86
Thread Starter 
Just figured I'd share it with you. NOT TO DEBATE ABOUT IT!!! Just to share.

Please wait for a site operator to respond.

You are now chatting with 'Karla'

Karla: Hello. Thank you for using the Intel Customer Support chat service. We are glad to be of service. How can I help you today?

mjones@live.com: what is the max volts for the new i7 2600k please.

mjones@live.com: max safe volts, the site says 1.52v, but surely that cannot be true

Karla: The information can be located here:

Karla: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52214&code=Intel%C2%AE+Core%E2%84%A2+i7-2600K+Processor+%288M+Cache%2c+3.40+GHz%29

mjones@live.com: can you please just tell me

Karla: what voltage are you referring to in specific?

mjones@live.com: the core voltage

mjones@live.com: vcore

Karla: Let me check

mjones@live.com: thaqnk you

mjones@live.com: ??

Karla: We and Edgar are both looking for the information you requested, allow us both a moment please.

mjones@live.com: Yes mamm

Karla: Datasheets from this processor at page 78 confirm the voltage indeed is 1.52V

Karla: The datasheets are here:

Karla: http://download.intel.com/design/processor/datashts/324641.pdf

Karla: The maximum core voltage is 1.52V

mjones@live.com: wow

mjones@live.com: it's amazing to me, almost impossible.

mjones@live.com: if your 65nm chips could only take 1.55v max, and your 45nm chips could only take 1.45v max.... you're telling me that a smaller 32nm chip can take 1.52v again?? HOw can that be, science says that's impossible?

Karla: That is the way the processor was designed, that is the way its being manufacturer.

Karla: manufactured

Karla: And seems not be be impossible as the engineering and development staff were able to manufacture the processor that way

mjones@live.com: Well, I belive you guys.... you're the one's that made it afterall. Seems strange still, but I put my faith in you guys, and if it fails, will just rma and get another . Thanks for your time.

You do realise you talked to a random call centre person with no real inkling as to how CPU's work, how they are made and what voltage does. They just read it off their notes.

OK... i'm just saying the information you received is in no way accurate and merely represents an official stance as opposed to real knowledge or reasoning.

No offense, but that was really dumb and a waste of time.

What is the max voltage people are using with Gulftowns? I know I've seen 1.45 and up for extended use. both are 32nm, why would SB be any different?

Edit: There's no way I would run one at 1.5v but just sayin'
