I have heard in a few places people that do extreme overclocking say things about "burning in a chip at a high vcore to prepare it for DICE", what exactly do they mean?

Do you need to break the chip in with a really high voltage so it does not burn out, or to OC better, or what?

EDIT: boy, I feel like I am flooding this forum with annoying questions. But I just want to get everything right, and learn it all fast!

Thanks to everyone that helps me and answers my constant questions.

I have heard the same thing. It really can't hurt setting the v core a little high and burning it in with small FFTs on prime95 for a few hours first. I have heard this more from people whom don't want to damage their CPU though, rather then from the dice crowd. TBH intel will burn them in pretty good in the factory before shipping them out (when they test them for binning), but again, running Prime95 with a 1.5 or 1.6v for a while won't take anything off them and it may loosen them up for the big run.

Basically, you should let your chip "burn in" in terms of if you buy a new one you want to DICE it. You want to get it used to the kind of stress that you are going to put it through, this does not mean giving it 1.8v and running it on air though

You should give it a few days of doing the everyday benchmarks, etc. at a reasonable vcore and overclock.
