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.

whether your right or wrong just remember this is overclock.net 'pursuit of perfromance'

EDIT: Just a note, I do however agree with viridian on one point, don't make speculation a fact. Intel are r***** for not being specific but sometimes experience can help, however please always explain that it is not a fact and only recommendation can be given.

Well considering that stock voltages with stock clocks are 1.30 volts plus I'm sure 1.38 isn't that bad. I remember I once accidentally hit that stupid autotune button, and when the system back back into the system and it was doing 4.8 GHz at abut 1.48 volts, (from a mild 4.1GHz overclock, as my CPU came in a few days before my CPU cooler ) So no 'Auto' isn't the be all end all.

Yeah, I forgot this was overvolt.net.

Intel don't recommend overclocking using baseclock, but I still am. Based off information from overclocking websites and motherboard manufacturers that say you can OC the baseclock safely by 5%, which I am doing. Same places also recommend no more than around 1.38-1.4v.

Intel don't support overvolting at all. So, I'm right and you guys are wrong. It's in plain English from Andre the support rep. If any of you think you know better I suggest you head over the Intel's support page and get in touch and prove me wrong.

Yeah, same for me if I use TurboBoost. It sets vcore to auto and pulls 1.36v to get 3.8GHz. I'm clocked at 4GHz using 1.202v.

You could probably get that down quite a lot and run a lot cooler if you tried lower vcores smile.gif Take my example as above... auto tune wanted 1.36v for 3.8GHz, yet I'm 16 hours prime95 blend stable @1.202v =D

EDIT:

opp, you're already at 5.3GHz =D

Exactly why I try to tell people that their volts are particularly high when they're at 4.8GHz and 1.48v.... Because I've seen the same clocks done on much less. I know, of course, that some CPU's better and worse than others, but my point is maybe they could work on shaving some vcore off.

I've also been after a definitive source on the vcore because my friend's 2500k, as I keep mentioning, does 4.8GHz @ 1.36v... and we're dying to get it much higher but daren't in case we break the CPU or lower it's lifespan. We're not exactly modders or professional OC'ers with CPU's by the tray-load to burn and waste and find out!

They don't support it, no. That means you lose the guarantee when you do it. That has absolutely zero to do with safe voltages.

Also, you're lowering the CPU's lifespan even if you're within specs. The mere act of increasing frequency will lower lifespan. Flawed logic is flawed.

@Viridian stop posting crap in my thread I DON'T appreciate actually submit something helpful or leave. Thanks.

I was playing with autotune a few days ago, 5.1 ghz @ 1.6 lol wasnt paying attention to voltages... got that taken care of pretty quick lol

So yeah anyways the red led underneath the CPU won't turn off so everything lights up and the fans turn on for like 15 seconds and then it restarts and repeats.

I'm fairly certain it's just the CPU. But idk I really think the motherboard should be sent back too just to be sure. I tried removing the RAM,the CMOS battery,the RAM,and unplugging the cord from the PSU and the motherboard this morning and doing the press power ten times and on the tenth time held for 30 seconds. Replaced the CMOS and RAM, and reconnnected the PSU and all. Still no go it looks like the CPU ight on the motherboard is completely lit up so I think that says the CPU is bad. I didn't check the manual to see. Problem is this would be my second RMA through Intel and or ASUS. Although ASUS was a recall even though it was broke tongue.gif.
