4.6GHz @ 1.35v

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am working on my overclock right now. My current load temperatures are high 40s, low 50s.

I am at 4.4GHz at 1.35v and I am considering getting it and keeping it at 4.6GHz. I absolutely do not want to go beyond 1.4v and I would like to keep my CPU for many many years (about 4, who knows).

Do you think that 4.6GHz at 1.35v would be safe if I can get it there?
Would 1.4v be safe?

Really depends on your temps. I would not go over 1.375 as intel recommends. What are you using 4.6ghz for?

Really? this is Overclock.net...... you need to have a reason to push a 980 to 4.6Ghz ?

So true. I take my statement back, unleash vcore until you smell burning. No seriously, you need good cooling at 1.4v.. and even then I wouldn't recommend it because I'm anal about safe volts.

Devvz, do you have anything to say on this topic?

What if I can achieve 4.6GHz at 1.35v? Is that unheard of?

Intel states that FOR IT'S 45NM CHIPS they can take 1.55v without damage. I have no clue about 32nm, but I would keep it under 1.4v. I don't know how much 14v would degrade the chip either.

So if I can get to 4.6GHz at 1.35v, I'd be fine?

Thats safe by the looks of your cooling.
Btw I think 1.35v for 4.6Ghz on a 980x refers to a Golden Chip doesnt it?
