The truth about Sandy Bridge "VID" (Voltage range) - Page 7

post #61 of 70
True, nobody can tell if 1.460 is safe for SB.. even my friend who got the retail 2600K since release day runs it at 1.480v at 5.0Ghz under aircooling still has not yet seen any hint of degradation but who knows maybe a couple of months down the road its gonna die out. Some are not worried since if it degrades, they just continue to degrade it till it BSOD's at stock speed and RMA.

Depends on every chips. Maybe got lucky.
For me i decided to play safe at 4.5. under the 1.35 limit (for now....)
post #63 of 70
Im also running it at 4.5Ghz, needs 1.350 but im giving it 1.360 just to remove any possibility of instability even at idle.

I have yet to see my SB degrating. I have 1.45v 5ghz HT ON since day one (6 month now). i have push it to 1.6v and 5.3ghz for benching. Now after 6 month people will still say that we have to give it a year and after a year people we still tell you to give 2 years .

Because not all chips are made equal, some may run 1.6 5.5Ghz 24/7 blending(prime) with just air cooling at 95c for 10yrs.

I'm sitting in PC hardware about 12-14 yrs. and never saw any CPU, GPU, RAM or something degradation. :/ I think it's a legend or something. Did You ever saw any CPU degradation? Yea sure, if my CPU will get too hot it will become 65nm Core i7 The only one on entire world -.- I have running my Core i7 at 96 degree about half year and nothing happens (after I have bought resonable cooler) so... It's just silly for me o.O

I personally dont know some one who has as degraded processor even if they wanted to do it intentionally, I've just read user reports on the internet.

No offense but having 14yrs or just 14months of computer hardware does not really say much about SB, Im just saying its not gonna ever happen to you or me but it does happen to someone else.

At the back of my mind I want to intentionally feed my processor 1.460v and degrade it to the point the stock voltages will give me a BSOD since Intel has 3yrs of warranty on these chips.. surely if degradation is a legend I will never need that warranty =)

CPU's degrade all the time. There are plenty of people here that have experienced CPU degradation.

My i7 2600k degradion happened after few hours of benching at 5.3ghz with vcore like 1.55+. Now it needs +0.007 more for stable 4.4ghz oc for 24/7. And that is for just 1 day of benching..so yes it can happen

That's what i'm saying. Degradation can happen faster if you push your chips to the limit long periods of time.
It's obvios that 1.5+ will degrade your chip faster. In the range 1.425 - 1.5 depends of the luck you had with your chip and depends mostly of your cooling solution.. In the the 1.3+ - 1.425 it's very unlikely to see any degradation. But every chip is different.
