1.536VCore For A Stable 5GHz - Get My Chip Replaced? - Page 3

I reckon he should fiddle with his vcore to try and get it going OK at around 1.48v or something.

1.536 with adequete cooling is OK, but at 81C it would be foolish to think that you are 100% safe.
The CPU throttles at 95C, so I'd say up to 85C he's fine. They wouldn't put the throttle point right at the mark it'll die lol.

Try raising your memory and northbridge voltage up a notch, and put vcore at 1.488 like you said.

Then try running IntelBurnTest for 5 runs on maximum.

Raise RAM? And there is no North Bridge on SB.

I could try raising the CPU-PLL but I had it at 1.96 and it wasn't stable at 1.488Vcore.

EDIT: Loosen RAM timings? That works for AMD.

It's not all about the temperatures, you'll get to the point when you pass a certain voltage threshold where it will physically start to degrade the chip itself. The vCore you are running will do this.

I'd be happy with 4.5 really, 500MHz of clock speed loss is better than a degraded/dead CPU.

And no, don't take it back because you can't reach 5GHz, don't be silly.

Sorry, forgot it was intergrated on the chip.

Have you overclocked your RAM and entered timings manually? This plays an important role in OC'ing.

I've never heard of a successful RMA of a processor. Your chip not hitting 5GHz could be a factor of many things, TBH returning it to where you bought it is very dishonest. Remember this (and don't flame me) your CPU is clock for clock faster than a 980x and the temps you get from pushing your system and vcore that high are not worth it.

Honestly, I would be extremely happy to have a chip go past 4.2Ghz and be 100% stable. Why not bump it down instead of wanting what everybody else wants? Don't be another sheep.

Yea, I OC'd it to stock settings.

Knock the voltage down to 1.488 like you said, and try IntelBurnTest. I reckon you should be OK if you pass 5 runs on maximum. If not, push your overclock back to 4.8.

Remember, not evryone can do 5Ghz. Be happy that you passed the mythical 4.5Ghz mark. It's better to have a working, ever so slightly slower CPU than having a fast, burnt out CPU paperweight.
