5.2ghz for 24/7.. Too High??

post #1 of 96
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I've been playing with my 2600k and the clocks. I've settled for 5ghz HT off 1.5v in bios, and my temps are at 64c max load after a hour of Prime95 small fft's.

I went up to 5.1ghz 1.53v in bios and was stable 68c

Then 5.2ghz 1.560v in bios and was stable for a hour 73c max

What do you guys think, go for the 5.2ghz or stay at 5ghz?

I don't really care if I kill the chip, but hopefully I don't.

I'm at 5.27 GHz on a Gulftown, 24x7. I think it's fine as long as you are comfortable that you know what you are doing.

As long as you are aware that those high volt's could have a serious impact on lifespan, then stay with whatever you require. Makes 0 sense to stay at 5.2 if you don't need the extra 200mHz.

run prime a few more times to be sure and as long as it stays cool 5.2 should be fine.

I won't have this chip for that long. It's on my test bench. When IB comes out, I'll prolly get one of those to beat on.

for all my overclocking on this chip so far. here is the settings used.

Cpu LLC enabled
Cpu VCC 1.560v in bios
Cpu PLL 1.76v in bios
Qpi/vtt auto (1.050)
everything else is auto too.

Yes all power features are off. It idles at 5.2ghz. Idle temps are mid 20c's.

I use this for benching and gaming. I don't really send emails and browse the net. I have a iPad for that.

Also, I've been thinking of ordering the UD7 and returning the UD4. What do you think about this move??
