High voltages, high temps

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to hit the 4.0+ mark with my E7200. I have already pushed it up to 3.56 with 375x9.5 and 1.39 v core. I have no problem pushing more volts through it cause my temps stay well with in safe the safe zone. I know pushing over the recommended max can/will degrade your CPU and reduce it's over all life expectancy. But My question is if my temps stay relatively low is the less of a risk frying the cpu? I know it will be different between chips but how many of you guys and gals run over the max volts and are "fine"

Thanks in advance for any input.

I'm not very good with this, but I can tell you what I know. I've heard that the high temps aren't the only thing that contributes to the CPU's life shortening. I heard that overvolting, even staying on a normal voltage, can wear away the parts of the CPU that electricity runs through, and it will get unstable faster, especially when under too much voltage.

That's not 100% full info though, I heard it a long time ago.
