The limitation now is 3.6ghz max for stability, Windows will not boot with any voltage over 1.4v. So Optimize defaults Windows blue screens within seconds after posting since voltage is at 1.43v. I will most likely get more use out of this processor then the one coming
, that is if it lasts. In the near future I will make a render box using it, low power, on 24/7 at lower frequencies, probably around 3.2ghz. Will need a motherboard MicroATX (64gb of ram) or MiniITX (32gb) that can do PState overclocking/underclocking so as to set the voltage less than 1.4v (more like 1.2v would be my goal). Should get my next 1700x tomorrow - I will definitely be more careful this time.
