Post Your Golden Chip

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I've never made a "post your..." thread before so if this is violating something just let me know.

So I thought it would be cool to see everyone's golden chip. I'm not gonna be picky and ask for the CPU-Z shot if you don't have it, but just make sure to post the OC, OC%, Voltage for stability, temp, and Cooling.

Don't post results under high end cooling such as Phase change, LN2, or Dice unless you have 6+ GHz.

The criteria for entering are that you must have a 70%+ overclock on water or air, without bumping the voltage over 1.5VCore (1.45VCore for Sandy). Obviously I don't have a golden chip.

So for me it would be:
5GHz
31%
1.536VCore
75C under load
XSPC Rasa block

I guess I could try to turn this into a club, I've never made a club before and from my understanding you need authorization to be "official", can someone confirm?

EDIT: GPUs can be included too, same criteria, no insane cooling, 70%+ OC, no limit for voltage though.

The term "Golden" in this context is very subjective. I think I have a good chip, however others might not consider it truly "golden" unless it can hit 5.5 GHz on 1.52v or less.

I'm glad to see you've defined some criteria for it.

Best chip I have is the Q9550 in sig rig. VID is 1.17, it does 4.3Ghz 24/7 on 1.38V(BIOS, 1.344 CPUz). I'd call that golden I think, but not platinum.

The E8400 linked in my sig probably is "golden", but it's never been on a board with the GTL settings to push it. It can run 4.5 at 1.4V on a 750i which is pretty impressive.

That would be a silver chip. By golden, I mean like a 1 in 1000 chip.

EDIT: Also, for GPUs, to clarify a little: I once saw a GTX 460 that got to 1.5GHz, it was on-par with a GTX 480, maybe faster.

70%+ overclock on under 1.5v is gonna be impressive to see. I almost submitted my 70% OC, but the 1.52v it required put me out of the running...

4.05GHz
69% OC from 2.4Ghz
1.528VCore
74C under load
Koolance CPU-330



CPU-Z Validation is in my sig.

Post it, it doesn't qualify but that is insane.

dont think it qualifies for golden but here goes:

1.47 vCore
70C peak under load, average mid 60s
Ek supreme HF full copper

Doesn't count, because of the high turbo boosts on Sandy's, but that's pretty good.

I don't know if disabling HT on this 2600k would help with me needing 1.536VCore for 5Ghz.

What is a safe 24/7 voltage? Not the MAX safe but something that would be realistic.
