Did you underclock? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I think what he is asking is if you degraded a cpu so bad that it would no longer run stock, so you had to clock down below stock just to maintain stability...

To answer your question, No, and I doubt you will find anyone here that has..

I have an E4300 I got in 07, been running at 3.0GHz, 1.45v since then, 24/7... No issues yet...

That's not what I think he is asking. He is just using the wrong english words to ask his question.

I think he meant to ask, if we ever had to LOWER our overclocks after time, because what used to be stable, is no longer stasble. OR--the alternate (which he left out)--if we had to increase the voltage to maintain what used to be stable, but stopped being stable.

(OP: am I correct?)

And, to answer your question, yes. This has happened to every CPU I've ever had with the exception of a Pentium 3 600e@900. Mainly because that CPU ran at default vcore (same vcore at 600 as at 900) and only needed 0.05v more for 930 (the max the BX chipset could run on that board at the time).

Pentium 4 Northwoods(several I had)+Gallatin degraded badly thanks to the now proven GNDS syndrome. Not sure if this happened to Prescotts or not

X6800 went from needing 1.45v at 3.4 ghz to 1.5v, after some 3.6/1.65v attempts that degraded after awhile.

QX9650 went from 4 ghz/1.35v stable to needing 1.4v
High VID 2600k degraded to needing 0.05v more vcore for 5 ghz (1.45v to 1.5v load)
Second 2600k is much better, only degraded (or broke in) about 0.015v higher -->1.404v initially to somewhere inbetween 1.416v~1.428v load now)

I apologize for my poor english, but what you described is exactly what I wanted to hear, thank you.

My current htpc is underclocked but thats the only way it will run stable. Its a 3.3chip (I5661) and if i take it over 2.2 it bsod's on me.
