Help me max out my 2500k OC - Page 3

post #21 of 52
Well, no, they do know because they have word directly from Intel.

Check out the quote in my sig, it's from Gibbo, one of the owners of OCUK and it's directly from Intel.

And if you blow a CPU you are not entitled to an RMA. I hope that you don't blow your CPU and claim a fraudulent RMA because you just make it harder for people with genuine RMA's to get what they are entitled to. Whereas you broke your CPU knowingly and would try to claim a new one. Not fair and that's why companies are getting stingey with their warranties and RMA's.

So if you do break it and RMA, do not brag about it on the forums.




Anyways, honestly, you should be able to do 4.8GHz on much lower than what you're currently at. I've seen people running 5.1GHz on less

EDIT:

My friends thread is here:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...erclock-2.html

He's had to settle on 1.36v because he'd get rounding errors at 6 hours in on 1.33, then 8 hours in on 1.34, 1.38 got 16 hours stable, apparently.

Um yeah lol you guys got a better CPU batch that's all I have to ram more juice into mine to acheive the same. My old CPU was 5.2GHz at ~1.45v eventually. I only had time to get it down from 1.6No one really knows what will damage the CPU as they haven't been out long enough. Some people even say up to 1.45v is safe for 24/7. Right now I think 4.7 @1.425Folding@Home stable will be my 24/7. Right now I'm working on my highest overclock. Having the EPU enabled seems to help considerably with temperature which is the other half of the degradation story. Besides if anything happens in 2 years I'll just RMA again lol. to 1.45 before I bought a defective H50 and fried the CPU and Mobo and they did replace it (with this sucky one but still).

I'm trying to get him to answer, 'cause his spam of that "1.38V is dangerous" is annoying me. He's posting it in all Sandy Bridge OC'ing threads and only backing it up with "they have the info from Intel". I've read the thread he's talking about and fine, they're getting those results, but there have been no deaths so far. There are 3 known "deaths" from what I've heard: 1 CPU turned out to work at stock speeds, 1 hadn't been OC'ed and the last might have died of an OC, I don't know.

Whatever, mate. Get as annoyed as you want. Report me to the moderating team for spamming. That's fine. Even though, they won't do a damn thing, because I'm not spamming and simply trying to put the right information out there.

I'm sick, too, of seeing "some people say...." because those people are Intel, right? Those people engineered the chips, right?

Oh and I'm sick of seeing "they haven't been out long enough" No, but that's why Intel tests their upcoming products months before and months after release.

I'm contacting Intel at this moment via their live chat. It's been done before but I'm asking if 1.38v is the safe limit and we'll find out for sure.

I hope it IS above that because my friend will be a happy chappy.

How do you have 3x2GB of RAM?
post #28 of 52
Your voltages on your chip are very high, I'd recommend going down to 4.5 or 4.4 because of that. My chip can do 4.8 under 1.40 volts. But to get to 5+ it's takes an additional 0.1 volts. In your case, trying to get to 5 would probably give you volts that wouldn't be great for your chips. That being said, your temps are pretty good for such high voltages.
