Got my new 10700k build currently running stable using 51x2-49x6 at 1.32v override, temps well behaved: up to low 80s for stressing AVX bench runs.
Tried 51x4-50x4 at 1.375v, seems stable but yet not fully time tested, temps up to mid 80s for AVX.
Build: i7 10700k, Asus ROG Maximus Hero XII, 2x16GB G.Skill 3600 15-15-15-32 @ 1.37v, Noctua NH-15s cooler, 4 assorted SSDs and a big fat HDD, and an ancient but worthy gtx 1070 (4 years old!)
Cache at 46, IO/SA 1.23v/1.24v, LLC 4, all else is full auto.
Now the endlessly asked timeless question: for 7/24 use, are the above voltages acceptable/safe? Can’t find any voltage specs on this i7. Seems my mobo won’t give HWiNFO64 either VR VIN or VR VOUT, though I’ll be happy to post a screen shot of what it does reveal if asked. One surprise is that Vcore/VID only does the super low voltage drop at idle if using full auto settings. Any sort of OC, even if it’s only the mem XMP applied, disables that drop at idle. Is this the new norm, for my now retired 4770k OC didn’t behave that way.
What is also surprising is my 51 SP score (average I read) has its predicted voltage for a 4.9 OC at 1.414v (???). Also the auto IO/SA voltages are sky high @ 1.35v when applying my ram OC. Am I missing something here? Any comments or suggestions on the above?
I'm not a hardcore gamer but do a little. I'm mostly into flight simulation, both combat and civilian, and hobbyist video production (both of which are enhanced by a good OC). Finally, both the 10700k and 10900k are seemingly pre-OCed by intel. My full default base runs clocked at 47 with all cores under load, getting an extra 2 or 3 on top of that really ain't that much more IMO, though better than nothing.
When moving from A to B, it is good to know that you are at A.
