Not sure if it was totally dubbed but he said safe max is 1.45 vcore. Of course its not written in stone. Here's the thing if you have LLC on ultra high or god forbid Extreme then it will spike over that setting in bios. Ok say 4.50v set in the bios, but the LLC will spike it over when required (to prevent vdroop) to usually about 1.448v so bear that in mind. I have had 3 3770k's, all oc'd. The 1st was a 5.0Ghz job, vcore was 1.455 but I ran it a year like that. The next chip would not go beyond 4.9Ghz no matter what I threw at it voltage wise but it still was prime 12 stable at 1.385v a good chip. 3rd was already 6 years old by then and best I could manage was 4.8 @ 1.365 a decent chip but 4.9 was still crashing even at 1.440v. I'm giving it one more shot, this time at 1.445 which is right at the limit and prob 1.448 with LLC. CPU current capability is 140% and LLC is ultra high to hopefully manage the v-droop. Last attempt tonight, will update.
Here's a goodie, I have windows desktop gadgets installed on my desktop, these are like the 'Canary in the coal mine' if you see them freeze or disappear you can bet a fail is close at hand, even priming the margins show no errors or workers stopped but those little gadgets are sensitive enough to alert you of any instability. Keep an eye on them, if they act weird forget what you have in bios and add voltage before an imminent crash.
